After seeing all these beautilicious Gretsch gems here I felt like adding to the treasure trove by way of my first post.
I just acquired this fine example of a USA Custom. Best sounding drums I ever played!
Anybody else here who has this specific model? It's the 130th Anniversary Satin Gold Flame set that came out in the fourth quarter of 2013. 35 were made and this happens to be #1.
It seems that Gretsch didn't use the right glue with the wrap so the ends are a bit loose.
But hey, nothings perfect. :-)
The set came with a matching 14x5 snare drum, but I also just bought this nice 1965 Ludwig Supraphonic. The chrome snare fits well with the Satin Gold Flame, methinks.
