Here we have a 1957 Gretsch 6192 Country Club that comes with its original hardshell case and a plethora of case candy including the original Gretsch Guarantee card, Quality Control OK hang tag, Quality Control Packing Slip, and original Gretsch Guarantee Certificate with hand-written model and serial numbers. We rarely see this much documentation with a guitar from the 50s. It’s a nice thing to have with any vintage guitar.
Basic Specs: Gold Grover Imperial tuners. 1 11/16 inch replaced Bone nut. Maple neck with a 25.5 inch scale. Refinished and re-bound Rosewood fingerboard with humped block Pearloid inlays. 21 frets with minor wear. Possibly re-fretted. Body was professionally refinished in Cadillac Green and we have to say it looks absolutely stunning in this color. “6192” pencilled on the label indicates the guitar originally had a sunburst finish. Original DeArmond Dynasonic pickups. Original Gold “Space Control” bridge with Bigsby tailpiece. Original back-painted Gretsch pickguard.
If you’re looking for a great looking, great sounding mid-50s Gretsch, this will fill the bill nicely. The original case has some tolex tears and general wear, but it’s structurally sound with working latches and a cool tolex pattern.
