THIS IS AN EARLY 1960'S GRETSCH JET FIREBIRD. I HAD A FEW DEALERS LOOK AT THIS AT THE LAST ARLINGTON GUITAR SHOW AND THEY ALL SAID 1962-1965. IT DOES NOT HAVE A SERIAL NUMBER ON THE BACK OF THE HEADSTOCK. I ASKED GRETSCH ABOUT THIS AND THEY SAID TO LOOK UNDERNEATH THE CONTROL CAVITY COVER WHICH HAS THE NUMBER 72878 HAND WRITTEN ON IT. THE PATENT NUMBERS ON THE PICKUPS READ U.S. PAT. NO. 2892371 AND THE BURNS VIBRATO HAS U.S. PATENT NO. 67970 ON IT. THE BRIDGE ALSO HAS A PATENT NUMBER BUT IT IS SO FAINT I CAN'T READ IT. ALL DEALERS DID SAY THEY BELIEVED IT TO BE ALL ORIGINAL. THE BODY DOES NOT HAVE LACQUER CRACKING ON IT BUT, THE HEADSTOCK DOES HAVE A LITTLE THAT IS NOT EXTREME. THE BODY HAS DINGS AND SOME LIGHT SCRATCHING THAT IS NORMAL FOR A GUITAR THIS AGE. OVERALL THE GUITAR IS IN GRETA SHAPE. THE PICKGUARD IS BROKEN BUT STILL ATTCAHED AS YOU SEE IN THE PICS. THE BOTTOM HAS A SMALL PIECE OF BINDING BROKEN OFF AS YOU SEE IN PICS. FRETWEAR IS NOT BAD AT ALL FOR THE AGE OF THIS GUITAR. IT IS COMPLETELY PLAYABLE. THE ELETRONICS ALL SEEM TO BE WORKING PROPERLY. THE KNOBS CRACKLE A LITTLE BIT BUT CAN BE CLEANED.( I WOULD LET A PRO DO THAT ON THIS GUITAR).COMES WITH ORIGINAL HARDSHELL CASE. BUYER PAYS 45.00 INSURED SHIPPING. PAYPAL ONLY. LOWER 48 STATES ONLY. CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
