1 Jack Stacey 3 years ago The talk on Junior models made me think of this: I've always been intrigued by the pre-war Gretsch years, even though I'm not a jazz player. I love the cat's eye archtops. And anybody who knows me knows that I like big guitars (opposite the direction of the Juniors). So naturally I'm in love with the Synchromatic 400's. Only thing is that they're not exactly a dime a dozen, and the modern reissues just don't do it for me. So my question is, has there ever been a custom shop pre-war era Synchromatic guitar? I figure there must have been. I'd love to have (among other things) a custom 400 built as close to this 1939 model as possible. Would having one of these built be inherently more expensive than a custom Falcon? Custom shop models are just a dream of mine, but someday I'd like to have one.
