1 duojet55 1 month ago I was studying this old picture of Chet with his first Gretsch and noticed the cool cellulose tiger stripe pickguard. When first delivered, the "Streamliner Special" Chet received had a "Chuckwagon Beltbuckle" tailpiece instead of a Bigsby (notice his temporary addition of a Kaufman Vibrola) and that early pickguard. The guard appears to have a steer head imprint and I can almost make out CHET ATKINS printed along the center edge. Does anyone have a close-up of this picture? I think it would be cool to reproduce one of these if I can find some tiger stripe pattern nitrocellulose material.
