    Well ... Thomann has 11-14 weeks (estimate) delivery time ... shorter but still pretty long. But I do not know would that be real either. So as for now that tax issue is handled ... I will stick on my original order.

    Of course there would be older model Gretsch G5441T available in Finland (one music shop). Not as nice color ... similar as the red one on the video.

    G5232T is produced in Chine, G5441T in South Korea
    G5232T has mahogany body, G5441T has lime wood body
    G5232T has mahogany top, G5441T has maple top
    G5232T has mahogany neck, G5441T has maple neck
    G5232T has laurel fretboard, G5441T has rosewood fretboard
    Otherwhise those guitars looks identical.




    ... I asked in Gretsch forum is one better than another, but got no clear answer.

    Now I got reply from one who owns both. Over all he likes G5232T more, for example neck join being better done (easier upper frets access). He also mentioned that necks are not exactly same. G5232T has slimmer neck, G5441T has flatter neck (whatever one prefers).

    Now I’m sure I made right choice :D
