1 KidAfterDark 9 months ago I recently purchased a 2003 Gretsch G6117-HT and was curious about a few things. Is this a reissue model made after FMIC took over? Did this model have the tressle bracing? Are the HiLo’Trons an accurate reproduction of the vintage specs, and what was the approximate street price when they were introduced? From what little I can find on them I believe they were made between 2003-2009.
