This smoke green, two-tone beauty is one of the coveted originals from the first two years of production. It’s in amazing all-original condition; its beautiful lacquer finish seems to glow like a fine old Rembrandt painting. This stunning guitar features everything you could ask for in an Anniversary: trestle bracing (if you’ve never played a trestle-braced Gretsch, you owe it to yourself to try one), a space control bridge, and a rich-sounding Patent Applied For filtertron pickup. As you may know, the Gretsch Company changed the specs for the Anniversary models in 1961, after realizing that Anniversaries were stealing sales from the more upscale 6120 model. Starting in 1961, both the Single and Double Anniversaries lost their filtertrons (which were replaced by the less-expensive hilo trons), and most importantly, lost their trestle bracing (which was replaced by sound posts). While the later models are still very cool guitars for the price, the original 1958-1960 models absolutely reign supreme This guitar is in 8.5/10 condition, with only one very small ding in the top finish. It comes with plenty of period-correct case candy in its original hardshell case. This is a special guitar that we’d love to see go to a good home. SOLD!
