Every once in awhile we are lucky enough to put our hands on a truly special instrument. This guitar was brought to us by the original owners daughter and comes with the original Salt N Pepper case. This is one of Gretsch's most iconic instruments and one that is completely original form the first owner to your hands. The rare Orieantal red finish is in great shape for its age and the black back has a series of fine vertical checking lines that look amazing. The Dynasonic pickups have that natural "thwack" to them and the guitar has a very "woody" tone that really captures the tone of a different era.
