I say…..

Just used this at Church today – totally awesome.  Twang, Boom & Sparkle all in the right places – and I’m not just talking about the fancy gold binding.  Made in 2002, and therefore one of the last original Gretsch guitars before Fender bought the company and shifted production to Japan.  The lacquer used on this has that nicely aged yellow tint to it, there’s the smallest of bits of buckle rash on the rear, & the gold on the Bigsby arm is a little worn. Otherwise as perfect as the day it was sold.  Comes with original Gretsch Hardcase that’s suffered the usual loss of the rear catch, but the front 4 work fine.  Neck pocket has all the paperwork as in the pictures.
