Gretsch G5810 Electromagnetic Bo Diddley Red

$ 499.99

The body is in excellent condition overall and there are no major dings or scratches. There are light streaks visible in the light, but nothing out of the ordinary for a used guitar. No cracks, modifications or structural issues.

The neck is straight and the frets show only light wear. It’s in excellent playing condition and has no major issues. The fretboard, back of the neck and headstock are clean and have no dings, worn areas, cracks, repairs or extra holes. The nut is 1.70″ wide, the neck measures 0.87″ thick at the 1st fret and 0.90″ thick at the 12th fret.

The hardware and electronics are original and in excellent working condition. It does not come with a case or gig bag, but will be packaged securely with bubble wrap and peanuts.

Actual weight is 7 lbs 13 oz.

Please note that I do not set up my guitars before mailing. I have played it and everything is great as far as I’m concerned, but you may need to change the strings, adjust the action or do other maintenance to get it to your preferences.

I list some of my items on both eBay and Reverb. In the event that this item sells on both marketplaces before I can take the other listing down, I will honor the first sale and refund the second. There will be no exceptions to this!


$65.00 for UPS Ground. This is only an estimate on the high-end and will probably be less if you are close to the West Coast. I will refund any overcharge if there is any left over beyond the postage and packaging costs. I mail all of my guitars inside guitar boxes and pad with biodegradable peanuts. Local pickup and payment in cash are available, so feel free to contact me if you’re local and want to check it out.


I am a dealer and am not looking for any more gear for myself. I may not be able to offer much credit on a trade since I’m buying to re-sell. With that said, I will only consider in-person trades due to shipping costs and taxes. Please do not contact me for a trade unless we can meet in person.


I price my guitars as low as possible and don’t consider offers, so please do not ask for a lower price!
