Gretsch 6185N Electromatic
Origin: Brooklyn, NY, USA
Pickup(s): Two Dynasonic pickups have been added and the guitar was professionally routed for the bridge Dynasonic pickup. (It was originally a single pickup guitar)
Case: Non-original hard case is included
Modifications/Repairs: Bigsby has been added as well as bridge pickup has been added. Both pickups are changed and the necessary wiring for that. Knobs are changed. Tuners are original but one tuner button is a different shade of cream then the others and may be a very old replacement. Neck has been reset and the playability is great as a result.
Cosmetic Condition: Very Good condition with a few small pieces of the binding being replaced. There is some great weather checking and some other small dings, etc. 8 out of 10 condition.
Action/playability: Thanks to a pro neck reset this guitar has wonderful playability with low action with plenty of adjustability up and down. The neck is medium thickness and straight.
Description: Here is a fantastic playing and sounding vintage Gretsch “Electro-Spanish” that has had all the right mods done for the player,. From the Bigsby to the added bridge pickup to the balanced Dynasonics and the neck reset, this guitar is just absolutely perfect for vintage Country, Americana, Blues, Jazz and more. It also just so happens to be a drop dead gorgeous guitar and will inspire you with its wood, toneful sound.
