At number 802, it was one of the Guitars that Gretsch made within the first 5 years of operation. It was spray painted Black when I received it. Also the Rim had been crushed at some time and someone did an amateur job of repairing it. I had it stirpped of spray paint and re shot in the appropriate Gretsch SB style of the time and then st up properly. I sold it to Black Rider some time ago.
