Saw this on ebay. If I didn’t know better, I'd think it was made by ne of the talented luthiers on this forum:

Oh!, it´s a real beauty!, what a beautiful maple and great woodworking. I´ve followed the link, very nice picks. Really an impressive guitar!

Beautiful guitar, maybe its just the wood but it has a little bit more of a Les Paul look to it from a distance than a Jet (of course that's just how it looks to me); but the sound must be outstandingly Gretsch... not to disparage the honorable Les Paul.

I emailed the seller about the builder and he didn't much about him. He is not the original owner, but states it is a great guitar. I'd be leery of paying $2000 for a guitar by an unknown builder that you might have trouble selling, like this guy is. If someone could play it, then I'd be more comfortable. (Hint! Hint!
