1959 Gretsch Clipper in completely original condition, including case. This one has the rare white "soapbar" single-coil pickup used by Gretsch for a limited run in 1959 only. Pickup is strong. Neck is a very comfortable 1 3/4" wide at the nut, for those with big hands/fingertips. Scale is 24.75". Action is perfect, and the bridge has ample room for adjustment. There is no evidence that this guitar has ever had a neck reset, and in fact, there is a very slight back bow. Plays great with 12-53 jazz strings. Volume and tone pots both work without noise/scratchiness, although the tone knob offers only subtle adjustment, for some reason. The body is remarkably clean for a 57-year-old guitar, as is the original pick guard. The binding (usually an issue with vintage Gretschs) is aged, yellowed and spider-webbed with surface cracks, but is complete, not rotting, and not pulling away. I have really enjoyed playing this guitar, but have recently come down with a bad case of early '50's Guild archtop disease...
