Retrofret Stock # 6587. Gretsch Clipper Model Thinline Hollow Body Electric Guitar (1973), made in Booneville, Arkansas, serial # 8-3091, sunburst lacquer finish, laminated maple body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, original black hard shell case. Overall length is 42 1/4 in. (107.3 cm.), 16 1/8 in. (41 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 1 3/4 in. (4.4 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 24 1/2 in. (622 mm.). Width of nut is 1 11/16 in. (43 mm.). Some light wear overall but generally a clean and all original guitar. There is an old driver's license number engraved on the back of the headstock in fairly large characters; no other damage or alterations. The finish has some scuffing to the back, some dings to the back of the neck and a chip on the headstock rear just above the serial number, but mostly is still clean and shiny. The bridge has some corrosion from hand contact, other metal parts are still clean as well. Overall a nice player's example of a fully-hollow thinline electric guitar, not from Gretsch's "Golden Era" perhaps but a very good sounding, well engineered instrument. Includes the original Ess & Ess made HSC. Excellent - Condition.
