Vintage Gretsch Guitars

clean Filter Tenny @ Gruhn’s


Pricing is typical for Gruhn's. I'm actually surprised it's not $500 higher than that.


This model has been appraised in the blue-books for $3k-3500 for the past 20 years. My very first vintage Gretsch was a'58 6119 (long gone now), so I've always been alert to the pricing of them on the secondary market. It's been really interesting to see it stay so stable over the many years.


Purdy. And it's got the pickup close to the bridge, like I would want.


I bought one of these from the Birdman about 15 years ago. I remember the first time I saw one I thought it was just about the coolest Gretsch I'd seen (apart from a 6120). Very disappointed to find I couldn't bond with it and even more troubled to find I couldn't move it on. I sat on it a while and finally sold it to a guy in Italy.

I still wish I'd been able to bond with it better.
