My dad played rhythm guitar in a dance band in his 20s shortly after the Depression. Life took over and he didn't play again until he bought a Gretsch in his 80s (lived to 97). Bought in 1990s I think. Originally ordered a Gibson Sunburst as I recall but after many delays, he accepted this Gretsch as substitute. He liked it. I just gave it to my new son-in-law, a CPA who plays lead guitar in a band on the side. I know nothing about these instruments, and am hoping someone can tell me the background on this one and if I have made a good gift to my son in law. Thank you.
