The headstock shape doesnt look New Yorker'ish.

Yep... that's what the early post-war New Yorkers headstock looked like.

I doubt that "Red River Dave" is a proper Gretsch model. More likely it's a one off custom. Still, nice guitar.

Red River Dave was always seen playing some kind of blonde, usually a Synchromatic.

The Ad says its a 50's Era, My 58' New Yorker headstock looks different.So its a Post War model ? What year did the Headstock change from the rounded version to the more pointed center top?

I have a 1948 Jet 21 with this same shape rounded headstock. Thanks for the info.

Headstock shape seem to have changed around 1951. The Jet 21 appears to be a New Yorker with fancier cosmetics, but it would be cool to line them up and compare.
