1 Joe Desperado 3 weeks ago Well, many of you that follow Ebay sales for Gretsch guitars, may remember this body listed. It’s a 50's Silver Jet body that someone ripped the back off of in a cruel and usually death. I am trying to nail down the date based on size in another post, so maybe you all can help with that as well. This came from the estate of Leo Quan and was listed on ebay for a week or so. I actually looked at it many times during that week and deemed it not the project for me. Fast forward a week or two a client of mine reached out to me to say he bought it. We discussed it for a while and eventually he sent it to a furniture shop to have the wood work done. Several months later and no work completed, he picked it up from the furniture shop and asked if I would do the wood work for him. I accepted the challenge… then fell in love.. After I started the repair, I ended working a deal to buy it from him and keep it for myself.
