Being a Ludwig dude, I'd call that a Gold Coast. Not sure if Gretsch did anything like that.I love the drum and the gold inlay matching the snare! Silver looks good, too. What a sweet little kit! And I dig the label!
For the right venues I love my 16 Gretsch bass. But I did a gig last Friday with a beater 10x14 Slingy 70's tom that I've turned (ok, butchered!) into a micro bass by adding a snare stand, legs, riser and cymbal stand. I had hats and a vintage Gretsch snare off DFO and a flat ride and had an acoustic rock out! And it sounded great behind 3 acoustic and a clean electric! Although I felt like I was riding a tricycle! And it sucks that I forgot my carpet thinking we were playing IN the museum, not outside it! But the loading was super easy! Gotta love small basses!
(PS: the ride is supposed to look that way - Old School patina 18" flat ride - it's a little too much IMO)

This is a cool rig, too!
