Great playing and I LOVE that guitar!

Had those pups in a DeArmond T400 and they KILL.

I love the tone, and if they made it in blonde I'd buy one tomorrow - sorry boys, but only Gretsch can pull off those colors and make them look right...

Not to mention a blue one:







I'd have that double-cut in a minute - while the Setzer-style 5420 screams rockabilly hot rod the gold-trimmed 5422 is actually classy, in a Cadillac Green Viking/Country Club way...
