Gretsch Amps

small time parts weasel fesses up


Well I have cracked on the parts biz where a clean and complete vintage guitar is stripped of parts, and then the forlorn 'husk' (industry term) is sold off. At least with Gretsch it's often done w/ less sought after models, like Viking or Tennessean

Well after I blew in so much on this Gadabout, temptation took hold to at least pay for the new speaker which makes it sound much better.

So I weaseled off one of the two Brooklyn-Chicago name plates seen on Gretsch cases, and even the headstock of the 6070 bass (!) I think they are riveted on the cases tho.


So, what’s the back story on this?


So this is a confession?


Let me get this straight- a desirable part was removed from an equally desirable case?

Must be more to this...


Great post it is really informative and creative to help us post new updates. it's really worth it. Thanks very much.
