Gretsch Historic Series G3161 2002 – Orange

$ 1033.74

Gretsch G3161 made in Korea 2002 with original Gretsch Logo case..Extremely hard to find in Australia. I bought this in California.. Its 25.5 inch scale length! (FENDER SCALE)..These where made under Pre Fenders ownership ( So real Gretsch! ) and where only made for two years..They did make them under different model number but they had 24.75 inch scale and a fixed bridge..this is a true hollow body guitar. The floating bridge has 3m nano tape holding it in place..Brain Setzer trick..I didn’t want to drill the top of the guitar to hold it in place.

Laminated Maple back and sides, Maple neck Dark Rosewood fretboard with Gretsch thumb nail markers. Trus Rod works Smoothly in both directions.

Two Gretsch Buckers..Upgraded Volume and tone pots..500k DiMarzio and high quality jack plug (Japan)

Locking Grover tuners..two screws broken in back of headstock E and A ,but all tuners work and are secure..The original holes were professionally filled and coloured with wood dowels.

Upgraded nut bone ..Setup with low action.

Very cool Historic series cats eyes sound holes of correct specifications (unlike the later models they were not as pointy towards the ends)

No cracks or chips

The guitar is in Good condition extremely playable.

Post is now expensive in Australia.

Pack and send is $160..if you can find a better option let me know
