7686 Atkins Axe

The 7686 version of the Atkins Axe had a Deep Red finish.

Like the 7685, the 7686 was reissued for a brief time in the late 90s/early 2000s. Of course, since Atkins was not with Gretsch at the time, it couldn't be called an Atkins Axe. Instead, it was alternately known as the Gretsch Axe, or occasionally, the "High Roller".
