Vintage Gretsch Guitars

What is this 6122? 60 neck date

1

Can anyone tell me what’s up with this guitar. I picked up a puzzling Country Gent. Double cut, has headstock date stamped 37XXX, No made in USA. Body has patent number Filtertrons, single mute lever. Fingerboard looks like rosewood. It’s a classic George Harrison brown stain. Thanks

The serial # is date-coded and translates to March of 1967.

FWIW my March '67 Nashville doesn't have a "Made in USA" stamp, either. Just the 37xxx serial number.

Nice looking Nashville Dave. Looks like the ones I used to drool over in the music stores I visited while in High School in the mid/late '60's.

The “Made in USA” was added to the back of the headstocks in June of ‘67 if my memory serves.
