Serial # 127483   Dec 1967  stamped "Made in USA"

This 1967 Gretsch Single Anniversary is one of the last from the old Brooklyn factory as Baldwin takes the company over, and comes in its original Brooklyn/Chicago case.  Neck was reset in 2018 by Curt Wilson, a wonderful luthier and owner of Old School Guitar Repair in Hopewell, NJ (oldschoolguitar.net).  

As far as 51-year-old guitars go - THIS is what you want --> a sonorous voice, easy playing and good mojo.  I bought this a few years ago knowing i had to put some money in it, but its been worth it, this instrument has really roared back to life and feels great in the hands.  HiLoTron pickup delivers the Great Gretsch Sound you'd expect from this era.

Finish is in excellent condition, with very little wear from its 51 years on Earth, binding shows some of the nitrocellulose deterioration expected of these guitars, but it had been stabilized and it is intact.  Please examine photos.  All original with Baldwin-era tuners, pickguard, roller bridge and 'G'-cutout tailpiece.
