Olive , that’s a sweet guitar it’s very cool looking and I’m sure it plays just beuitfully
Nice Gent. I didn't know the Baldwin's don't have back pads.
I doubt fender or gretsch will reissue the papers - i think you are perhaps imparting greater value to them than they really justify. I would thinking that in order to authenticate your guitar, they would have to physically inspect it in person. Hardly worth the cost and bother.
We all certainly consider Gretsches modern art - but it's modern art made by one company contracted by another and mass produced in factories by multiple workers. Not the usuall production method for art which usually has one individual creator.
My guitar was number 217 in November 1972. At this time it mean that Gretsch built about 20 guitars every month. I can say it was a mass production and I agree with you but not as today's mass production. I don't wait to much from them cause as you said, it will probably need a physical inspection but maybe a local inspection by a Gretsch representative will be ok?
Welcome to the Forum and what a beauty you have there !!
With respect you'll not get much from gretsch.
Why are you so bothered about getting a certificate??
Its obvious what it is.
Welcome to GT Olive !
Félicitations pour une fabuleuse guitare et bienvenue à Gretsch-Talk!

Bonjour Olive, et bienvenue à Gretsch Talk. I don't know how I missed this thread but welcome brother Canuck. Big Gretsch Round-Up happening on May 12 in Kingston.
I think I understand this post.
Is it in Portugese?
Welcome to forums Olive, beautiful guitar you have there!
I have eleven of my vintage Gretsch guitars insured, and having the warrantee certificate is a non-issue. An appraisal (from a qualified source) is what they require.
The "local representative" would be from Fender (there really isn't a Gretsch employed staff anymore). And what credentials would they have to certify your guitar? You might try and contact Joe Carducci who's the Fender product manager for the Gretsch line, but he'd probably just call me.
May 12, I'll be there. Thanks for the info!
Maybe we should start this business together? ;-)
Welcome to the forum. Your guitar is beautiful.
Cool, I look forward to meeting you!
isn't it was you said ?
Gretsch Pages is the other Gretsch forum. We're much friendlier here.
