VINTAGE 1978 GRETSCH SUPER CHET SEMI-HOLLOWBODY GUITAR ORNATE BEAUTY

$2,995.00

This is a beautiful Gretsch from the late 70s in their Chet Atkins line of guitars. This guitar is in a beautiful Wine Red finish and is regarded as one of the more desirable models that Gretsch put out after their Baldwin buyout. It has Gretsch Filter Tron humbucking pickups and extremely ornate fingerboard and headstock inlays. The tone controls for this model are all attached to the pick guard. They are somewhat notorious for the plastic knob breaking. This one had 2 broken (just the plastic caps, pots work) but we found 2 original replacement caps that the new owner can install if you choose. This guitar sounds incredible and definitely has that Atkins/Gretsch signature bell-like twang. This guitar is in wonderful shape for its age and will make a great addition to any Gretsch enthusiasts collection.
