Found this leaning against my office door. A friend of a friend got tired of it laying around his tiny guitar shop. Not sure how I feel about it yet but the price was right.

The Historic Series instruments that I've seen are well made and sound pretty good.

Nice guitar!

I'm glad you posted this. The little Korean "Cat's Eye" guitars are really nicely made. I have a G3161 with a solid tailpiece and it's one of my fave noodling guitars.

Congratulations!, in my experience this is the best of ALL the Historic models for looks & sound. The twangy sound of the DeArmond 2000s in the full hollowbody is unmistakably that iconic Gretsch tone.. You also have the best version of Bigsby on this guitar.

I tried one in a store a little over a year ago and was very tempted. Those are really nice guitars, actually!

I already have a guitar with 2000's.... And I absolutely love it!
