    I hate to do this because I looked for one of these for a while, but I just have too many guitars. I HAVE to clear some out, and this is one of them. It's a 2003 6118 Jr in really nice condition. It has some scratches and a strange area where the finish is a bit cloudy on the back, and the filter covers are a bit weathered, but other than that, it's excellent, as is its original case. HD filters sound great and deliver all the nice Gretsch'iness you could want, albeit with a little less low end than its big brothers. It's supremely more comfortable to hold though, to me anyway. It was sold to me as having a finish crack at the heel join on the upper bout side, but I don't see it. The finish might be cracking where the back of the heel meets the body as it appears to be a bit rough, but I see no movement on the sides of the join. It appears to be finish only, if that. I really don't see any issue for a 17 year old. As I said, I'm only selling it as too many guitars are sort of weighing me down at the moment. I need to put some cash elsewhere. Please let me know if you have questions or want additional pics. Happy to help however I can! I'd like to net as close to $1500 as possible after fees/shipping. Shipping to Lower 48. Thanks!

    Very cool. Just curious about specs: how wide and deep are these bodies? what bracing inside? do they resist feedback better than the full size?

    Me neither, I'm baffled. When I think about the nearly 2 years of searching it took to find mine, I'm very surprised this hasn't been snapped up by now.

    Nice! I'd like a Jr - don't see them often this side of the big ditch.

    I was actually surprised at the HS filters. Really liked them in this one!

    I might be interested in those for my 2001 pre-Fender Anni Jr....
