Do you have one with the misspelled GENTLMAN on the headstock plate ? Don't wanna wait for Gretsch to send you the new, corrected plate ?
For $90.00? I wouldn't care if every word was mispelled, I wouldn't pay $90.00 for a hunk of brass any trophy shop can make you for under $5.00.
Damn I really like these little picture thingymajiggs
"NEW Genuine Gretsch Chet Atkins Country Gentleman GOLD Headstock Name Plate"
"Up for auction is a brand new genuine Gretsch Chet Atkins Country Gentleman headstock name plate in gold."
Half-ounce of gold for 90 bucks? You'd be a 24 carat fool not to snap that up.
Yeah, "gold", right...
Mine is spelled right. I'd kinda like one miss spelled. That's typical vintage Gretsch.
I'd be more concerned whether or not it had waffles or trestles.
For stamp collectors, postage stamps from the late 1800's/early 1900's with printing errors are worth TONS more than the correctly printed versions.
This one is worth close to $1,000,000.
So maybe the incorrectly spelled Gent plates might be worth a LOT one of these days.....
not only is it expensive,but like BEAR mentioned,for $5.00 any trophy shop will make one,you can also have it personalized if you choose.I did that with my CG gibson truss rod cover.I find its pretty cool to have your own name on a guitar...just my 2 cents
