From raw rockabilly to smooth, Space Age instrumentals, this versatile and all-original guit can and will cover everything you throw at it. Supremely touch sensitive, it responds to a strong right-hand attack with ample mids and bright (but not brash) highs. Palm your pick and explore your Chet Atkins fixation by working through “Mr. Sandman” — you’ll be delighted to discover how dynamic this beauty really is and marvel at how it maintains a pleasing balance between registers. For the sake of variety, grab your pick, kick on your clean boost and then add a soupçon of real (or simulated) tape echo, and you’ll quickly find yourself in a realm of hot-rods, hair gel, and rolled-up Levi’s. Crazy, man! Minor dings, but no binding rot or neck-angle problems. Some light finish misting on the label as is occasionally seen on Gretsches from this era — but if you've ever held a vintage Gretsch in Cadillac Green you'll know this finish is the real deal. Includes original tweed case. $5800
