Modifications/Repairs: This guitar has had quite a bit of work done to it, so it's not obvious as to everything that may have been accomplished. It was most likely a factory recall by Gretsch around '58-60. However, we know that this guitar was updated as a true gig-worthy guitar and plays BEAUTIFULLY.

Body updated with a rolling bridge and a repro Bigsby with moveable arm. Neck updated with a beautiful fret job, thumbnail inlays, and zero fret (most likely added during factory recall).

Case: Original hard shell Lifton case. Original leather handle has broken off and been replaced with a new leather handle.

Condition: This guitar shows little signs of play wear despite its age. There is some light buckle rash on the back along with other light scuffs. No checking whatsoever. Small finish cracks in the headstock near tuners and truss rod cover. Amazing shape for its age.

Notes: Plays beautifully. The neck is chunky and the frets are tall with very low action. Quite resonant with a strong woody tone. Bigsby is really smooth and stays in tune no matter how hard you push it.
