This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-09-11)
Price : US $2,850.
Here is a beautiful example of a vintage 1964 Model 6120 which became the Nashville later on hand made by persons unknown at the Gretsch plant in Brooklyn, NY in 1964. It is a beautiful vibrant orange, some are lighter than others. There is some fine alligatoring as would be expected in the heel of the neck and near the curves but only superficial. The binding is intact, no rot and nothing is loose. I bought this guitar about 10 years ago at a show and it never left the house. It's been stored under my bed humidified and only came out briefly for a tuning and some light playing. I believe it is nearly all original except maybe for the bridge and pickup covers. I had the neck re-set back in 1994 by east coast luthier Mark Simon of Mark Simon guitars. Mark is very well known in the area. He used to be a luthier at Mandolin Brothers in Staten Island, NY, who has done work for Paul Simon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and GE Smith, just to name a few. Paul McCartney actually flew his famous Beatle Bass there on the Concorde with an armed guard to have its neck re-set. I included several pictures of the neck joint area. You can't tell that neck has ever been touched. The action is beautiful, the intonation is spot on and the guitar sounds great both elctrified and accoustically. Included is it's vintage case which is beat up but functional.
Shipping charges will be provided upon request. I want to make sure nothing happens to it in transit. Pickup would be great.
