    Are you the kind of person who 1) likes a little flash and 2) likes your guitars to be played in a bit? If the answer to both questions is yes, then this is your axe.

    Very good cosmetic condition and excellent playing condition 2016 serial number, early 2017 inspection card Vintage Select '59 Silver Jet. TV Jones Classics, space control bridge, Grover sta-tite open back tuners, ebony board, B3 Bigsby, .83" at the first, .93" at the 12th fret neck size, light weight and EASY playability. Currently strung with 10-46 Vintage Reissue Gibson strings (changed since the pics). COA and original case.

    This has been played. There's some buckle rash and a couple of good sized dings on the back that do not go through the finish but are there. Some hardware tarnish. The master volume pot is a bit scratchy. In my mind, all the better to turn things loose.

    I REALLY like this guitar. It rips in ways that push all my garage rock buttons. But I also have one of the smoke gray and purple Penguins inbound, so my loss is your gain. $1650 shipped and PayPal CONUS. I'm in Chicago and happy to do a local(-ish) deal.

    The important stuff...

    That’s a great price and looks clean. Hopefully a member here jumps in it.

    Not looking for trades at this point. The sale of this guitar is going to funding a new Gretsch.
