This guitar is very fun. It has the shape and feel of a Les Paul, without the backbreaking weight. The tone is very Gretsch. The guitar has been refretted, and the headstock has been busted and professionally repaired. The Bigsby tailpiece and TOM bridge are not original to the guitar, but the originals will ship with the guitar. For those of you who cringed when I compared the feel to a Les Paul, you might change your mind if you were to play this guitar. It is a very playable vintage Gretsch, if not a completely original one.
