"Gretsch White Falcon" on eBay

Postby Gooch on Wed Jul 08, 2015 1:42 pm

Anyone here familiar with old Gretsch guitars? What is this thing?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/371375404652

I don't know a lot about Gretsches but I started looking at them recently and came across this one. Why is the neck set so far into the body, with the pickups so close together? I couldn't find any other example like this. Every other one I've looked at has the neck much more clear of the body (except the single-cuts). Is it a fake?

the inlay around the f hole seems pretty shody. either it's a fake or gretcsh did not have high standards. I'd guess the latter and it's real...if so, great price. however prices for that and vintage gear in general are quite low these days. everyone's tapped out.

It's not a fake, I don't believe. Gretsch was still using that old nitrate plastic for bindings and pickguards, notorious for crumbling apart. This guitar has spent a lot of time on the bench--and there's a lot more, too.

I'm thinking that the guy who bought it needed a project.
