Vintage Gretsch Guitars

is anyone still into Gents


Well, I don't think you can expect any deals at Carter. And he's got the year wrong. It's definitely not a '67. I would think early '66 by the SN. It's been modded to be more like a '63, with stairstep buttons, dual FilterTrons and red mute felts.


I have 2 early '60s Gents. They do OK but they're kinda bulky. If I were going to gig a Gretsch all the time I'd look hard at a VS Jet.


I gigged for nearly 25 years on a stock-as-I-could-keep-it 1970 Gent which I bought in '74.

Still have it, and have no plans to swap it out for anything else.
