Description

If you're a die hard Beatles fan (like me), you want one of these in your collection. But, if you want a Harrison spec Gent, you will have to look long and hard for a good one. They are prone to all sorts of issues. First, you need to find a late 62, 63 or a late 64. They changed the neck pickup to a Supertron in 64 and that's a different guitar than the one George played (he had a 62 that was destroyed by a truck and the 63 he played on The Ed Sullivan Show). Once you find a double cut Gent with flip up (not dial up) mutes and two Filtertrons and Grover Imperials, then you need to find one without binding rot. Good luck. This one has perfect original bindings. Then maybe find one with its original uncracked pick guard. Again, good luck-almost all of them crack at the screw. Not this one. This is an early 64 with no issues other than a shrunken back plate. Unlike many Gretsches from this era, it hasn't needed a neck reset and it plays beautifully. There is a spot of wear by the upper strap button and some light wear to the back of the neck. Frets are original and at around 85%. Re-fret is not needed. Case is original and excellent-all latches and hinges are functional and the key is in the case. If you're planning on doing a Beatles display for your man cave, I have the components shown in the last photo (Rickenbacker, Gretsch, Hofner and Ludwig bass drum head reproduction). Inquire for price for all.
