Modern Gretsch Guitars

Weirdest CG I’ve ever seen!

1

Just finished watching some movie about The Monkees on Netflix, and the Mike Nesmith character was playing the weirdest CG I've ever seen.

Had Filtertrons as usual, and color/markings were OK, BUT!

The controls were like a Duojet. A single pickup toggle, master volume, and separate pickup controls WITH A TONE KNOB!?

Looked weird, and couldn't help thinking it was just sooo wrong. Anybody else familiar with it? Hopefully this was a 1-off mistake.

Possibly a period-incorrect (not to mention model-incorrect, as the Monkees did not use Gents) guitar from the later '70's?

The Monkees movie was made in the late 90's/Early 00's, so it was probably a Pre FMIC Country Classic II

Yep, that's it. Just looks weird & more than a little "off" to me.

Checked, movie was made in Canada/2000.

It looks like an upgraded Electromatic 5122 with bound f-holes is all! I liked the pre' FMIC headstocks, in fact they should have used that design on the new Electromatics IMO, but that's another thread :)

The controls are wrong for any Filter-equipped CG. It does make it look like an Electromatic.
