6158 Electromatic Console lap steel

This Valco-made lap steel was offered in the late '40s and very early '50s. This model can be easily differentiated from the Student and Standard lap steel models by its twin necks. This was the top-line lap steel offered by Gretsch until the introduction of the 6147 and 6148 Jet Mainliner models in the mid 1950's.
