1 exwag 3 weeks ago Hi everyone, I am new to the Gretsch Pages, having just acquired what I think is a 1966 Country Gentleman in fantastic condition. The only odd thing is that there is no serial number--not on the name plate of the headstock, not on the top edge or back of the headstock, not under the pick guard, and not inside the body. I have heard from Walter Carter and seen in other posts that this is not unheard of. I do not think the guitar has been refinished recently as everything glows uniform (and very strong) green under blacklight, and color/feel seems original. I think the body was re-bound, as the binding is perfect and black light does show a slight dark "rim" on the top and back following the binding. Anyway, given the Supertron I believe this would be post '64; given the double mutes I believe pre-'67; and given the signature and "GENTLEMEN" typo on the pickguard I think '66 or /67. So I'm going with mid to late '66 but would be happy to hear anyone's opinion. It is a fantastic player and I am thrilled to have picked it up.
