1 Timothy Owens 1 year ago Hey! Hi everyone. I joined this forum because I just got ahold of an oldish looking guitar... parlor sized... that needs some work on a brace (I think) and for the sides to be fixed up in a few spots... but.. This is an old guitar and on the back of the headstock, right up at the tip top of the headstock, the insignia of Gretsch American is stamped right in to the wood. I'm trying to figure out if in fact it really is an actual Gretsch or not. I haven't been able to find a serial number or any other identification on the guitar except the insignia on the headstock. I'm hoping some of the folks on this site can help me determine how best to handle this new instrument.
