Price : US $1,000.
This guitar is the top of the line made-in-Japan version of Bo Diddley's personal guitar. It is in excellent but not quite perfect condition. Here is the information from Gretsch's website:
For five decades, Bo Diddley has been turning heads with his great
chops, incredible showmanship and outrageous guitars. Now it's your
turn! The G6138 is a faithful reproduction of the famous
rectangle-shaped guitar Gretsch built for Bo back in 1958.
Measuring 17-3/4'' x 9-1/4'' x 2'' and made of alder and 5-ply maple, the
eye catching Firebird red semi-hollow body features two FilterTron
pickups, a Tune-O-Matic bridge, Gretsch ''G'' tailpiece, and plenty of
gold hardware. The 3-piece rock maple neck has an ebonized rosewood
fingerboard with ''dot'' pearl inlays, a 1957 style headstock, and a
special Bo Diddley signature on the truss rod cover.
There are two light but noticeable scratches across the back of the guitar that did not show up in the pictures. There is also a small dent (approximately 1/8'' wide) on the top side of the guitar towards the rear. The guitar sounds terrific and plays excellently. It has been professionally set up for .011'' gauge strings.
It has excellent sustain. I have used it on two albums and about 10 shows, so it is not heavily used. Upgraded toggle switch. Everybody likes this guitar. You will too.
