    Still out of my league. But such a gorgeous guitar. Hopefully Stephen Stearn has a long way to go. Considering how highly regarded he is as a Master Craftsman, I can only imagine what his creations might be worth someday. $3600 seems like a bargain to me. Especially seeing how unique this one is.

    Reverb may not be fun, and eBay even worse, but you'd have no trouble getting your price and then some on those platforms, IMO.

    Yes Merc, thanks for the encouragement. Indeed, that Stearn is a master artisan. Wish I could keep it, but I’ll get the itch for a Gretsch again, I’m sure... after graduation.

    I agree with @afire . I’ve had good luck selling on Reverb and you’ll reach far more people. Just factor in their percentage cut prior to posting a price. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about Reverb and haven’t used it. But it’s fairly straight up and they have a little pop up window if you need any help. You could try ebay but I’m guessing most musicians check Reverb regularly over ebay. At least I do. Oh, if you set it up so payment goes to your bank account, etc, their fee is a little lower too.

    Beautiful guitar, amazing price...it will be very hard to pay less for a Stern guitar (it's actually the cheapest custom shop Gretsch I have seen in years) so this a very unique chance

    That is a gorgeous guitar (duh!)!

    Welcome, good luck with the sale.

    Not sure if you're aware, but Edward is our resident sales associate from Chicago Music Exchange. Might could do a good job on consignment, if they do that (I do not know).

    Fantastic guitar and price! Bought a daphne blue double cut Stern for the same price a couple of years ago. Feel like I stole it! Someone scoop it up! Good luck with the sale!

    Hey Folks, thank you all, great advice and support all round. Did not know about Edwards/CME, though I have bought from them before. I was deciding to go ahead and try placing it on Reverb :confused: for my original asking price after the suggestions from Gretsch community-thanks. But let see what else pops up before Monday....

    Took John up on his offer and bought the Gretsch. Beautiful example. A big shout out to John who is a super nice guy.
