Hi all, This G100CE at a great price has caught my eye: https://reverb.com/item/5673422-gretsch-g100ce-synchromatic-cutaway Overall, the guitar seems to be in good shape with just a couple of nicks and some tarnish on the tailpiece and pickup; however, the pick guard is warped as you can see in this photo: In all fairness, the owner did point this out in the listing and has priced the guitar accordingly. I asked how this might have happened and he responded that he didn't know, speculated that perhaps it had been in its case too long (although it appears to be the correct Gretsch archtop case), and mentioned that he had had a Les Paul do the same thing once. He does live in Arizona - maybe it's a heat issue? I could just buy the guitar and, with the savings over the prices others have listed, purchase a new pick guard if the warp really bugs me and still pocket some cash. What do you think? Is this kind of warpage common with arch top pick guards or might there be some other reason behind it?
