Cosmetic Condition: This Tennessean is looking classy. The Walnut body is in good, but used, condition, showing many marks of play and checking lines throughout the body. There are some light dent and scratches on the body. The sides have some wear, the binding is cracking and deteriorating. The back of the guitar shows buckle rash. The neck has many dents and scratches. The headstock has some checking lines and edge wear, as well as some small nicks on the face. The headstock also shows some hanger wear. This Gretsch has only gotten more handsome with age!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: The tuners have been replaced (originals are in the case). A spacer has been added to the truss rod. The binding has been reglued in a few spots. The pickup rings have been repaired, somewhat hastily.
