Customer brought me this guitar and the guys here at gretschpages.com helped me identify it. Thank you!

I have updated the info for most features in your listing, based on the photo that you posted. Would be able to be more precise with year if a serial number is provided.

The serial number should be on the back of the headstock, or stamped into the top edge of the headstock— this appears to be a late-60’s/early ‘70’s model based on the features.

on back of headstock: Made in U.S.A. 10815 So October, 1968? Streamliner Model Hollowbody? The customer told me that on more than one occasion he has been offered $20,000+ for this guitar?! Would there be any reason at all that this guitar is worth that?

Yes, with that serial number it would be an October 1968 model. As to the owner’s claim regarding the offer of $20K, I suppose he should have jumped when he had the chance. The average price range for this particular year model is $1000-2500, depending on condition… it’s not a very common model, but also not very sought after by Gretsch collectors either. The Streamliner series was never a high-end model for Gretsch.

Awesome. Again thank you for all the info.

Ooops, my bad– the serial number is actually January, 1970.
