    Looking for 975.00 - 75.00 Shipping. It is on Reverb along with other guitars from my collection. Look up Gretsch Universe. Funding a 'holy grail' guitar. PM if interested.

    This guitar is in un-played condition. It is all original with the exception Custom Pinstripes that were applied prior to my purchasing it, I do not know who did them but they are excellent quality. Although reminiscent of Hot Rod Walt, they definitely are not...the head stock pinstriping is similar to Jimmy C. but again, they are not. The striping on the back of the neck is awesome!

    It has the renowned Gretsch D'armond pickups and has super smooth tone! Pickguard and Truss Rod covers still have the protective plastic from new. I also have the foam for under the bridge that came new, it will be placed under it for shipping to protect the finish. I only remove them so they do not cause finish damage in storage.

    Non-original case, built like a battle ship though...from smoke free home, kept in a climate and humidity controlled room in my home. In the last two photos, it looks like finish damage...it is actually paint spots from the light colored stripes caused when the striper was applying the pinstripes...kind of cool actually, in my opinion. No jack hole issues at all, it is perfect.

    This guitar has never been gigged or outside of my home. In actuality, it has not been out of the case but for photos for this ad and photos previously for my insurance company.

    I plugged it in an played it after photos, through my Marshall JCM2000 it has a raspy AC/DC tone when you rip into it!
