Default Cadillac Green, getting close!

This guy got the color very close to Cadillac Green. Much closer than some others that I've seen. He should just sell the wrap, he might make more money with less hassle.

Cool Re: Cadillac Green, getting close!

He did a great job with those!! At least he is honest and not trying to pawn them off as the real thing...

Cheers

I agree, it is a decent deal. At least a fair deal. What I'm saying is that he would sell a boatload of that wrap if he went into production. It's close enough for me, and I'd wrap with that...maybe even spring for some faux gold plating.

The green color you see on this kit in question is green paint not wrap.

No, they are wrapped. Besides them saying that they are wrapped, there is the obvious seam in the wrap on the floor tom.

Correct! The seller is quite specific in his explanation that they are wrapped.

Seems more spot on than some of Gretsch’s efforts!

Default Re: Cadillac Green, getting close!

man thats some replica. It's kind of surreal actually as the "real" kits go for so much more & this is really nice.
Gretsch experts what is your take on this?
High Treason?
Counterfeit?
Pretty dang cool?

I really dig it.
