FS: Gretsch Custom Shop Penguin (Steve Stern) / Fender Custom Shop Strats!! FS: Gretsch Custom Shop Penguin (Steve Stern) Mint Condition

Greetings, I am going to sell a few guitars here again for financial reasons. Please no trades. I ordered this guitar from the Gretsch Custom Shop via Private Reserve Guitars. It is one of the most beautiful guitars I have ever seen! This was my 2nd Steve Stern Custom shop Gretsch. The first one I still have and play (Champagne Sparkle). The COA is intact and the case candy is all there and unopened. This is a special guitar. It's awesome! This guitar is in Mint/New Condition. I played it for less than 20 minutes. I have too many guitars and I play a Crook Tele and just let the collection sit in the cases. No blemishes, fretwear or scratches. The gold hardware does not show any blemishes either. It's virtually new.

That's a beautiful Penguin and I'm not usually a fan of gold hardware. I wish I could help you out and take that off of your hands but instead I wish you success on the sale.
