1957 Gretsch Streamliner conversion.
NOTES This 1957 Gretsch Streamliner was professionally and painstakingly converted to 6120 Specs. .
Strong DeArmond Dynasonic pickup was added to the bridge position. This pickup is from another 1957 instrument.
The original wiring harness was replaced with a modern TV Jones harness.
The two additional knobs were sourced from another 1957 instrument.
Professionally refinished in nitrocellulose laquer with slight tint added to clearcoat to replicate an aged finish.
Professionally set up, refretted and dressed with the Plex computer controlled guitar setup and fret leveling system. This system optimizes the setup, taking into account the truss rod, string gauge, and neck shape in order to achieve a perfectly leveled instrument while removing the minimum amount of material.
The guitar plays beautifully. The action is fast and low, there is no fret buzz, and the pickups have incredible single-coil tone. All around, this is an incredible player. It is currently strung with thomastick flatwound 10s.
Original case is included with this guitar, and is also in excellent condition.
You can be confident that his instrument will be expertly packaged for shipping.
I'm currently looking for a 1950's duo jet, and would consider a trade involving one.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
