If anyone cares to play.
Take a look at the neck heel.. It’s going to need at lot more work than throwing on some parts and a setup
I think the price will probably go too high for me considering the work that’ll need to be done.
I do really really want a smoke green Annie though!
It would only be worth it if the initial bid price was 'buy it now'.
Yea, ive watched alot of these kindsa things go crazy on eBay. People get pretty unrealistic with their spending.
Yep, if i could have it up and running for around 700 bux and some elbow grease I'd be into it, otherwise nope.
In a case like this, you’d have to know how to do all the repairs yourself or else the cost is way too much.
Aside from parts, I’d bet that a luthier would charge up to a grand to get that guitar in good shape. Not only does it need a neck reset, but it’ll need binding work and that bowed neck at the 14th fret looks pretty bad too.
After repairs and parts, you’d have spent more than just buying one that’s in decent shape!
Absolutely, you would have to do it yourself. That neck looks like it would pop off fairly easy, probably the screw is the only thing holding it on.
So I’m the end, what do you guys reckon it’ll sell for?
This looks to have sharp ended and bound f-holes which, is not usually the case for Annies. They are usually squared off and unbound. Was it an after factory mod? Or where some 60's Annies f-holes bound?
That is odd, i hadn't noticed.
My Annie has squared off f-holes that are unbound. But mine does have a bound neck!
Hard to say but I've seen husks go for 8 or 900.00, this one is pretty roached though.
I wouldn't be surprised to see it go for around $700. Trashed looking guitars are popular, especially among people who have zero idea of what it will take to get this back on the road.
The Annie came out in '58 or 9 and its predecessor was the Streamliner which did have bound f holes, check this '58 model
So i guess the Annie could be an early one. I see its routed for HiLo's so its no earlier than '60.
It's all curious and interesting at the same time!
Love when you think you have a handle on old Gretsch guitars and then, a curve ball gets thrown at you!
I have a 63 6117 and it has the unbound f's but, has a bound neck (I understand that the bound neck was introduced around 62?
Seller has the serial no of 49272 which, would make this a 63.
If this guitar ended up in my hands i think it would become a Dyna 6120. Its got the bones for it.
I've seen an Annie that had been refinished in Red with white DeArmonds on, it looked great. Can't remember where I saw it?
Was it on here? Or GDP?
Dunno but, it looked really cool!
So, in essence, I agree with ya on that one!
Plus I love Dynas!
ive seen worse! my mosrite neck wasnt taken off, it was smashed off! but there is hope.....
It's really an open canvas at this point, it's unrestorable imo, at least not without a ridiculous amount of money. You could mod this baby guilt free.
The Mosrite neck is fixable, you need to dowell all those holes and imo put in threaded inserts so that won't happen again. Oops, wrong guy for Mosrite tips, ah well he'll see this.
