I had not been on this forum in a long time. I ran across this thread and realized that I ordered my USA Custom kit the day before you. I also got mine in June and I love it. Congratulations on the new kit.
Gretsch is really good about customizing a special order kit to your specs. A friend of mine ordered a set, and you wouldn’t believe the detail they went through of getting the exact setup he wanted. I guess it is the drummers equivalent to the fender custom shopSo Lar, you didn't get the 2 muffler thingy on your drums? I thought they came standard on the USA Customs.
