    I actually got this on Sunday Feb. 21.

    Gretsch G2215P90 Jet Jr. Club.............

    It's sort of a LP Special.

    The bridge p/u is a Broadtron and the neck is a P 90.

    Master volume on the cutaway and master tone to the left of the bridge.

    Because of the Broadtron, there's a hint of chime.

    No fret nibs and the neck and body are bound with thumb nail inlays'

    Nato body and neck with a laurel fret board.

    The poor man's Nik Huber Krauster II :thumb:

    I did have to raise the bridge p/u and lower the bridge.

    GC didn't tune the guitar and I tuned it at the store to a whole step lower.

    At home, I tuned it to pitch with a D'Addario 9.5 set and adjusted and lemon oiled the fret board the neck.

    For an inexpensive entry level guitar, it plays like a pro guitar.

    It fits in a Guild Bluesbird case.

    Congrats Axeman and I like that color a lot! Often though about getting a Fender Strat in that color!

    Probably not.

    Who knows?

    The early 60's Epiphone Coronet that I bought for $75.00, and later sold, is listed for over $3k............so go figure.

    IMO, that Epi is a cheap guitar.

    It never stayed in tune.

    The Streamliner Gretsch G2215P90 stays in tune......so wtf knows?

    The inexpensive guitars are what they are and are a crap shot with dealer's placing value.

    I have other guitars that are now worth crazy $'s..............but not $700,000.

    Maybe you have some $700,000 guitars.:bump::rolleyes:

    Thank you all.

    My wife told me that the color reminds her of my Danelectro and candy.

    The lime green has sparkle to it and not very Gretchy.

    I like the sparkle look.

    Ha! Cool guitar. Neck looks like it might be a fatty?
    $350 street, you can probably get 'em for $300. I'd hit a green one. :yesway:
