    I came across this gem in the on-line used inventory at Guitar Center. It's a Gretsch G5420T In "Like New" condition with case for $500.00. It's supposed to arrive at my local GC on Tuesday. I've wanted a Korean Gretsch hollow body for some time and with new ones going for $800.00 plus case, this seemed like a great deal. In addition to all my Teles and Strats this is my third Gretsch (Fender family). Can't wait to get my hands on it.

    Nice! Enjoy your new residence in Twangtown! I gotta say South Korea makes some of the best electric guitars outside of the USA. I have four that were made at World Musical Instruments, and they are as good as (if not better than) some American made guitars.

    I also wondered when I saw the photo, but was assured that the photo contained some strange reflections.

    That's nice!,, if you look hard enough there is almost always a deal to be had on GC.. I have to stay off there or go in debt.. Enjoy the new MVP (most valued player).. If your into basketball you could call it the "Durant",, The finals MVP,,, Again...

    You can pretty easily tell that those are reflections and not scratches since they’re in different places in the different photos. Congratulations, it looks and I’m sure willl be awesome!

    Congrats. GC takes the worst pics. We expect much better ones when it arrives.
