This was my first Electric Guitar. I bought it new when I was 15 or 16 years old. It came with a Gretsch amp that was solid state. In 2010 Fred Gretsch and Curt Wilson Branded the back at the 2010 Nashville Roundup. The idea behind this was that it would no longer be considered a Baldwin era Gretsch but a full fledged Fred Gretsch, Gretsch.

All wires and apparatus in this vicinity DANGEROUS !!
