    I have a gretsch Cliff Gallup signature model I am looking to trade or possibly sell. I bought it brand new from musicians friend about 2 years ago. It’s in great shape has barely been played and only at home. I’m mainly looking to trade for a jazzmaster cutomshop, or a Bilt zaftig.

    This model is pretty unique. I believe only made for 2 or 3 years. Body is finished in nitro and still has the factory smell to it. It’s strung with flat wounds that came from the factory. Bigsby arm comes fixed. Everything is stock. The guitar is in excellent condition.

    Pretty rare as I haven’t been able to see another one on the used market. For the moment I’d be looking to trade. Please email with any questions. Thanks.

    not quite sure how to post photos. I know I have one posted on Instagram @emsleybill. I’d be happy to email pictures or if I find out how to do it.

    Beautiful guitar! Good luck with the trade/sale. I’m surprised they discontinued that. I know Cliff Gallup isn’t the most well known outside of the Gretsch/rockabilly circles but that was a killer guitar in the lineup.

    If you did decide to sell, what would be your asking price? Oh, and is the bridge pinned on that model?

    This model had my eye but I could never find one in stock anywhere. Unfortunately I've got no CS JMs or Bilts to trade, but good luck!

    Not CS but I have an Am. Ultra JM that I could part with. A year old and played very little.
