1 kc_eddie_b 3 weeks ago So after 12 hours and 900 auction lots Fred Gretsch's big yard sale (at Julien's) is over. Mostly "modern era" leftovers from the 90s, including many guitars labeled as "prototypes" made up the majority of the event. But there were also 20 or so actual vintage Gretsch guitar lots, some marketed as being from the Bachman-Gretsch collection, and then some odd-ball factory furniture, and tooling peices... and even Fred's Harley Davidson motorcycle. Because this was a charity event the bidding was often ridiculous (i.e. war-time Synchro 100 selling for $2250 plus 28% buyers premium) and that's great for the Gretsch family charitable efforts. I had 3 or 4 guitars I had set my sights on to try and score... but the crazy bidding pretty much took them all way above my budget. However there were some deals to be had. Any GDPers score anything cool?! I got a couple things... starting with this "prototype" cats-eye model they tagged as "Model X".
