Edited March 2018 to correct the production year (originally thought to be a '59). 100% original in 9/10 condition w ohsc - acquired in a trade at the Jan 2016 Vintage Guitar Show in Costa Mesa CA. Really stunning example - just a few scratches on the back of the neck and light checking. Binding has only a few hairline cracks.

Very cool Annie! be sure to call-out the trestle bracing on this one, as that’s a desirable feature on the ‘58/59 models only. FYI… your serial number puts this Annie squarely in the 1958 model year range. The 22 fret fingerboard does as well.

I hate always being the guy who bursts peoples “59 Gretsch” balloon, but since a lot of dealers claim that every Gretsch they sell is a ‘59, it’s better to straighten owners out sooner rather than later.

congratulations ! those are very nice guitars. I have a actual 1959 Annie, but your’s being an actual 1958 is even better.
