This is a pre-owned 2011 G5122 '58 re-issue single cut hollow body guitar finished in Walnut Stain. Though the combination of gold hardware and a nickel Bigsby vibrato bridge may seem unusual, this is how they were produced in 1958 and this is a period-accurate model from Gretsch Japan. This guitar is in excellent condition, with little sign of wear & tear to note. This guitar comes with its original case and certificate of authenticity.
The single-cutaway closed hollow body has simulated f holes, trestle bracing, arched top and vintage walnut stain finish. The three-piece maple neck has an ebony fingerboard with mother-of-pearl Neo Classic thumbnail inlays and polished brass nut. Other features include dual High Sensitive Filter'Tron pickups, three-position pickup switch, three-position master tone switch, gold plexi pick-guard with "Chet Atkins" signpost, aged binding (body, fingerboard and headstock), "rocking bar" bridge, gold-plated Grover® Imperial tuners, gold headstock nameplate and Bigsby® B6CB vibrato tailpiece.
