I saw it today. Its kinda cool.It comes apart and fits in that case. I copied these photos from the Gretsch Talk forum but I think it is the same guitar. There can't be more than 1 of these in Minneapolis.I think Gretsch only made 50 of them.

Zombikini.

It was John Simon's Band. His brother is Paul Simon.

agree

according to Wikipedia, John Simon wasn't in it, he just produced them.
