The bridge pickup (vintage Dearmond 2000) has been installed by the previous owner, he has choosen to add a new wiring with master volume (original pot and arrow 1956 knob) + two individual tone pots (new 250k pots with new G-arrow knobs). I have added white homemade pickup raisers (but, to be honest, pickups didn't need them as they are real volume monsters) !
A gold jack plate has been install too... Otherwise, original tuners, frets and strap buttons, etc...
- Unusual factory features
The gold pickguard seems to be correct (legit color and shape) but it is blank as it doesn't have the engraved "Gretsch" logo on the bottom side. I don't know if this has happend sometimes in the 55/56 productions ?

I bought this guitar in 2014 from Chris D**. Thanks! this babe is a real pleasure to play (the sweetest neck I ever play) ! Moreover, the sunburst is very nice and classic on these old '50 !
