As mentioned in another post (about Frankentone pickups AFAIR), I am starting a restoration - or rather a transformation - project of a "derelict Gretsch fake lefty thinline imitation" of a Tennessee Rose. I bought this derelict guitar for 100 euros including hardbag. Not a too risky investment... Considering the absolute scarcity - not to say the inexistence - of this kind of instrument in Left-Hand dexterity, it was the occasion for creating an improbable, one-of-a-kind lefty instrument for me... Still fake, anyway. As is : The Fake vs. the Real : The first step is to see if this fake guitar - although not showing irremediable flaws and still in general good shape - is worth to go further and make some tests, notably about pickups... A+!
