1963 Gretsch Tennessean. Cherry Burgundy (fading on top) finish, single cutaway, w Hi Lo-Tron pickups. Nitro finish, weather checking . Downside> Original pickguard was missing. The previous owner put Grovers (a nice job) & it had Filtertrons long ago. Flamey neck !
Image
The good news: Full set up by Toneman, Don Butler . Neck has been reset by Don Butler, and good for the next 50 years. It has an upgraded Tru-Arc (correct) bar bridge. Original Hi Lo-trons were put back in place. More good news, the body binding is stable, no binding cracks "missing" pieces. One small split (see Ebay pics~ link below) .
Image
No rot "issues" on 'neck binding' at all. It plays & sounds great . "The" old oschool Hi Lo-tron tone 8) . Note: The tweed Banner Case shown-above- 'not' included. The case candy shown :very COOL HANG TAGS, and the Gretsch Certificate + original 60's Gretsch strap, like new but almost 50 years old ~(not sold separately) are ALL included here with hsc.. Any questions ? Please send me a PM or post comments here & ..thanks for looking !

...almost forgot...I also hired Paul Setzer to do this custom fit guard.
Image
It cost $1200 (locally) + $500 parts and labor (Don&Paul) +$100 for correct '63 sparkle hsc (at Ventura Music, Studio City), & would like to recoup what I have invested in the guitar ...

FF price is $1800+ shipping etc. Local pickup ok...PAYPAL ok (but the 3% money transfer fee is yours)
USA MONEY ORDER is preferred . LOTS of PHOTOS on Ebay (where it is $2500 (omo)>>>>> LINK HERE & . . .
ROCK the HOUSE !

Image

Peace out,
G

Did it twice my brother.

As you know, I am in no position to buy this beauty, although it is definitely right up my alley. I do not care for "Shiny new" guitars. This one is definitely a machine I could wrap my hands around.

Good luck with the sale my brother, I'm sure it will go quickly. 8-)

+1.

My station in life and demonstrable lack of talent prevents me from ever considering a classic vintage instrument. But this guitar surely is a beauty, and I hope you sell her soon to someone who will appreciate and rejoice in her.

Thanks for all the support ! I hate selling this one. Like you said Bob, this one is down and dirty in a good way


Sale pending (tomorrow) ...bittersweet...*& someone is driving from San Francisco to LA to pick it up.

Mentioning the George Harrison exhibit at the Grammy Museum may have been the icing....

stay tuned..
