Seriously... it says "Model: X archtop OR" on the label! This is one of the many prototypes that sold at the Julien's auction last month. I'm thrilled with this guitar, as it was a bit of a roll of the dice for me, and I don't really know anything about the Gretsch Historic Series. This is a guitar they should have released... it's really cool. It's over 20 years old and still has the plastic on the pickups! I'll probably be removing the guard once I get it set up and running.
