I’m entertaining the idea of offering him some trade offers, but I wanted to get a group opinion on these and a general price range. It looks to be in very nice condition. This one has filtertrons in it, but I’ve seen other super chets with blacktops.

    I’m really GASing for another Gretsch. I think this one would be a cool one!

    Could the Black tops Fil'trons be switched between the two Gretsches? Hmmm
    I love, Love, LOVE my Modd'ed 76 SC. The neck is the Bomb!
    Offer what you can afford and hope for the best.

    I think the gold band on the pickguard dates it as early 70's maybe 72' or 73'

    That`s quite a nice guitar. They do not sell all too often. If the very ornate style appeals to you and the big box is in good over-all condition I would throw my hat into the ring and try to buy it for an acceptable price (=under 2 K).

    I bought mine 18 months ago here in the uk.

    I paid £1500 in very good condition with original case.

    Okay it seems like you guys are confirming what I had already expected to hear. He has it listed at $1500. I asked what other Gretsch Guitars he has up for sale right now as I only have my ‘66 epiphone casino to trade. My casino has mods (unoriginal tuners, pickups, pickguard, and some slight body work) so it is nowhere near mint. I still think we’d be off in a value, but he does have some other gear or maybe we could work some cash into the offer. I haven’t started negotiating yet, just wanted to hear all your guys opinions on the Super Chet’s.

    You know what, as cool as these Super Chets seem, I think I’m going to hold off and save up for a nice Tennessean.
