Vintage 1964 Gretsch Country Gentleman with 70's neck
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-10-01)
Price : US $1,567.
The Kentucky gentleman I got this guitar from didn't like the original neck, so he had Gretsch replace it in the '70's. Thus we have the '64 body and hardware with the '70's Gretsch factory-installed neck.
The double mute mechanisms work well, but the pads could be replaced. There is some finish checking, typical Gretsch 60's binding rifts (see photos), and gold wear, but over all this forty-plus year old guitar is in very good condition. The main thing, though, is the 1964 sound of the supertron and filtertron ''heads'' that deliver that smooth bass and shimmering treble, ''That Great Gretsch Sound'' found in the early Beatle and CSN&Y recordings.
Included with the very good OHSC are the original guarantee, envelope, O.K. Card, switching and pickup instructions, and a warning about gold plating care. I will ship to Europe and Canada.
