This guitar has been partially restored by us, one of the significant aspects of this was replacing the humbuckers that it came in with to actual Gretsch reissue Hi Lo Tron Black Top pickups which while not original are period correct. Tuners were changed to Grovers. Heel and binding “Gretsch-itus” addressed with the plastic repaired and stabilized on the heel and on the binding near the 12th fret bass side.
Maple body with real painted-on F-holes. Mutes and switching all work as they should. Laminate maple neck with bound brazilian rosewood fingerboard with thumb inlays. Bigsby tremolo.
Good overall condition. You will find nicks, dings, scratches, lacquer reaction on body back (likely from a strap) , scratches on the surface of the rosewood fingerboard, slight cracking on pickguard.
Playability is excellent, the Gretsch vibe alive and well with this one. Playing Gretsches is a unique experience as they ring in their own way and sound distinctive due to the pickups which were used only by them.
Also of note is the original leather-like case included which has done its job well, while having scratches, paint marks (the usual rash from a guitar this age) all hinges and latches work perfectly.
Great for player/ collectors wanting unique Gretsch tones and feel on a genuine Vintage guitar, with this Chet Atkins Tennhessean being ready for live or studio duty.
