    Well, it's a 'Synchromatic' which means it's pre FMIC, likely late 90s. Not sure which model this is, looks similar to the 1413 but there was a bunch of them with different numbers for different finishes.
    These were not expensive guitars then and they do not command high prices now. Probably around the 300 mark back in the day and the brand new Jet Club is $299 today.

    Eman is correct, if you can get it for a nice price it looks like a fun little guitar.

    David’s right, it’s closest to the Bigsby variant of the 1413 Jet Club, whatever that model number might be. He’s also right that if it’s not priced well below $200, you might think of getting a new Jet Club instead. Is it red or tangerine colored?

    Welcome to Gretsch Talk. You’ll find lots of friendly folks here.

    Welcome here. That one should not cost too much. I see modifications that will not lift the price either.

    Thanks for the welcome. Its orange. I didn't think the bigsby was original but not sure. GC wants &249 with shipping that would take it up. I will probably get me a red Jet Club from my wife for xmas instead. I will watch and see if the price drops. If I could get it for less than $200 shipped I would jump on it.

    I'd wait for the red Jet Club. We'll still talk to ya, even if you're not really a Gretsch owner yet! It's not too long to wait really ;)
