1 Baba Joe 1 week ago 1977 Walnut Super Chet thanks to 949Norm’s thread about a guitar store. This guitar was in the group of Gretsches he photoed. The family of a local musician who passed away was selling his gear including the Super Chet and a 1958 Country Gent. Unconfirmed rumor has it that he had once backed up Elvis. I’m hoping for some mojo here.The guitar is unusual in that it has a factory Bigsby (some came that way) with a Chet wire plus it has a mud switch which, along with the pick up switch, are located along the bottom bout along with two volume knobs. There were no dials on the pick guard. There are also three other plugs there somewhat reminiscent of a stereo Falcon setup of that era.The back side has a pad and cut out access hole. Short scale, wide neck (1.725). The body is 2.5 inches deep. You can see a seam inside where the center binding is.I don’t believe the guitar is heavy because I didn’t even think about that issue until now and I played it a while ago. The neck profile is slim. I think the pick ups were replaced but I don’t know what is there. It sounds good.I naturally compared it to my 6122-1959 and at this moment prefer the ‘59 but am not complaining about the SC. If I were to put the ‘59 pick up combo in the SC, it might be a toss up. Hmmm, might have to think about that as I bought a spare set from someone here a while ago assuming that the right guitar might come along one day.I bought this on impulse which is not my usual method and must say I like it.
