1 lx 3 weeks ago NFI.Notice something different about this Corvette? The neck HiLo is way closer to the neck than standard placement. The routing for the polepieces would have to be on the neck tenon or very close to the joint. Gretsch decided to play it safe on later models and keep the pickup routing on the body rather than the neck.And it's a '62 due to a) the 3/3 tuners; b) the un-notched bottom end; c) the Waverly strip tuners which were standard on Clippers and Corvette/oids in 1962. More proof that Gretsch would do some experimenting and send those guitars out even if not standard production models.
