51 949Norm 2 months ago Welcome As previously mentioned, You and your GrandPa made quite an entrance here. That Guitar you have right there is just about as good as it gets for vintage Gretsch enthusiast's. That's exactly like most people like to find them, well cared for and in need of a little love. I also think its wise of you to learn playing on a slightly less valuable Guitar and keep maybe that in mind for any youngster relatives involved. That Gretsch is a treasure, not only for your family, but historically, changes and all. It tells a story of a person that loved it and really cared about it. Please do have Curt or some other qualified Luthier give it a once over when you can. Thanks so much for sharing this with us all !
