1 lx 8 months ago No Affiliation With Seller.I did see an earlier sighting of this but that seller didn't post spreads of all the pages and it seemed to be just a reduction of the 1955 Catalog for Moderns, designed as an insert into the Country & Western Jamboree magazine. But this has something new.On page 3 we see a new model: The Clipper, X6186 sunburst and X6187 "in two-tone desert beige and Shadow metallic grey." IIRC this would be the first sighting of this model as it didn't appear in any regular catalog.This is the early, full body version with a thin headstock (like some New Yorkers of the era). Unlike the Corvette this has a "slimmer body for comfort" (2.75" as opposed to 3 5/16") The scale length on the later cutaway versions is 24.6"; it may be that these still have the 25" scale like the Corvettes. Also pictured is the "full" shaped truss rod cover while the other photo-illustrations feature the bullet shaped truss rod covers.All the versions of the X6187 I've encountered are Lotus Ivory -- no desert beige -- and what was called IIRC Platinum Grey which usually fades to what I call metallic moss green. Not mentioned is the blonde full-body version the X6188 of which I've seen only one. Oddly -- and totally Gretsch -- I've seen a blonde '58 cutaway version of the Clipper marked as an X6187 with factory special-order hump-block markers on an unbound rosewood board.
