Sperzel tuners were added.
An earthing link was added from the bridge to the pickups and this eliminated hum.
Nowhere can I find that the B700 was originally fitted but it seems unlikely that it was a modification.
- Unusual factory features
It certainly didn't have Sperzel tuners but as I didn't have the guitar from new, that is all I can add.

I had a Gretsch in the 1960s. (I wish I had kept it!)
When I got married it had to go.
I had the opportunity to buy this guitar and jumped at the chance.
Now it is a 5126 but the silver glitter has a wonderful antique look about it and it would be easy to convince just about anyone who didn't understand the Gretsch numbering system, that it was in fact a gold glitter machine.
Tried to catch that in the photo but it is subtle and I didn't manage it.
