I would buy one if it were more affordable. I think that would be an awesome idea for a production guitar.

I'm sure it's a great guitar although not really my bag of chips, but to each his own.

I have seen some nice Jag's and Tele's outfitted with filtertrons that look pretty tempting.

It's gorgeous. Were I insanely rich I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

In reality you could probably get one built for maybe 1/4 that amount. What is the provenance worth to you?

Right! It is nice tho. Carved back too! But, really, what IS the provenance? I guess that it's a one-of-a-kind from the Custom Shop. But couldn't you do that yourself, too?

I've been drooling over this GCaster ever since a friend showed me this in the July 2011 Vintage Guitar mag. I went looking for it and couldn't find it at the Custom Shop. Now I know why.

I'd love to own this but, 20K? No way.
Still, love the look!

"Headstock veneer is walnut, I think."

The owner is a goober...he has a VERY expensive guitar, and doesn't know what the headstock veneer is.

Hmm.

"I was told that Fender had no interest in continuing to mixup the gretsch-fender brands."

If that's true, it's a shame. We'll be missing out on some cool guitars, like the Cabronita.

Mongrels rule!

Actually...the name Gretschacaster sounds like some kind of bug that gets stuck in your underwear.

Thumbnail inlays on the fretboard would have been nice.

Correction: I want a copy of it. I'd be terrified of having a guitar worth that much.

I am with all of you - looks nice, but price is silly.

Any luthier can do that for maximum a quarter of that money.
(Still to much if I were concerned ...)
