This here is the real deal! In excellent condition for it’s age and all original except the roller bridge which I was suspect was installed a long time ago. This is a fine example of this model with no binding rot (rare for Gretsches this old) the original Hilotron pickups, electronics and Bigsby tremolo system. The Bigsby is remarkably stable and the intonation is excellent, everything is in perfect order and needs no work whatsoever. I have nothing but good things to say about this axe, it really is an amazing instrument that puts out an outstanding tone with tons tons of vintage mojo. Comes with the original case (which is pretty moldy) and a new hard shell case. These are only appreciating in value and are not easy to come by.
