    What would be the full model designation? G6119-1962 FT Chet Atkins Tennesee Rose?

    At the price it is now, I'd want it, but I can't accept shipments for a few weeks. Anyone in the Netherlands want to babysit a Gretsch for a few weeks? No charge! :)

    I'm in the uk. I would happily help if I can.

    I would happily look after it for you if it works for you.
    Let me know by all mean?

    It will be interesting to see if or how much it goes up from the starting price.
    I Don't think it will go over 1150/1200.

    Anytime mate.

    He looks to be a bit far away. If he'd been clooser I would have gone and checked it out and collected it for you.

    Just let me know if you need my help.

    Good luck.

    The seller is a bit confused about actually makes the guitar. He keeps calling it a Gretsch (by Bigsby.)

    Excellent condition by picture and description.

    That could be a good thing.

    Looks like some sort of shop to me.
    But like you said it looks very clean from the pictures

    He's just read "Gretsch by Bigsby" off of the trem itself. He just doesn't know the history of either company. He doesn't seem to have anything else for sale, so a shop is doubtful.

    Looks like real f-holes. On picture 4 there is a slight discoloration in the left f-hole, where the label is. In the right f-hole there's a small brown area, which looks like the inside of the body.

    This will also be the 25.6 scale length model if that matters to you.
    Also like $300 more than I was trying to sell mine for here forever.

    You can add $150-250 for shipping to the Netherlands, and 25% over the total for my buddies at Customs. :)

    Lately I noticed all ebay sales charge the custom fees upfront. I suppose it's less hassle for the buyer, but the big downside is nothing slips through anymore. :(

    The seller is a Cash Converters shop in Kent.

    "There is no key for the case. The one latch that locks is missing the hinge and is locked in place."

    So the guitar is in impeccable condition. But the case has been forcibly opened. And it's in a Cash Converters.

    Think I'll pass.

    That doesn't sound good.
    The deal ends in a few hours anyway and I got no reply to my inquest = no deal.
