This Gretsch® Silver Jet was made in Brooklyn in 1956. This guitar has seen lots of action and shows significant wear. The back and sides show significant finish checking including some flaking. There is an old pro headstock repair that is totally stable. The top is in very good shape and has not deteriorated the way these sometimes do. Despite the wear this guitar is in very good playing condition. It has had a recent pro neck reset and the neck angle is excellent. All the parts are original. The case is not original to the guitar but is a correct 50's Gretsch® case that fits the guitar fine.
