Didn’t know they played a Gretsch…

One of my fave bands here in Australia. Front End Loader.

Their singer/ guitarists are normally on Les Paul and SG

But this Gretsch reference appeared amongst their posts re. New album just released.

Looks like the ultra-rare silver painted celluloid wedge guard. I've only ever seen the one that showed up here in its final stages of disintigration. I think it might have been Biel's? Might be the very same guitar.

If so, then this guitar played on one of the most revered rockabilly side of the 50s! Orangie Ray Hubbard "Sweet Love" Dixie 662

Very cool

Yes that was Biel's disintegrating silver wedge guard.

At the other end of the spectrum...here is Brent Hinds / Mastodon, in the studio playing a vintage Tennessean.
