Vintage Gretsch 6170 Bass
Thee's thee' Bass!
I had a a 6070 -- they are cool. Biggest neck ever.
ALL WILL REMEMBER, (another tedious BirdMan lecture) -- Country Gentleman bass was just a street name -- Gretsch never called it that and Chet had nothing to do with it.
Pretty sure that's a 6070, DrG. My son has the same model (but with the mud switch still intact). If we end up coming to the NorCal Roundup he'll bring it.
And thanks for that old Brit vid -- awesome.
