Here’s something so rare that we haven't seen one before — a wonderful vintage top-of-the-line Gretsch Synchormatic sunburst 18” archtop with a carved spruce top and highly flamed five-piece maple neck, back & sides. The ebony fretboard is adorned with mother-of-pearl bisected cloud inlays.
This is the classic pre-war design, with the rare “light bulb” peg head, multi-layered body binding and the large “cat's eye” sound holes. The instrument is in fine condition with exact replica hardware, including Grover Imperial tuners, stepstair bridge and harp tailpiece. This beauty plays like a dream and the sound is impressive as well. Good, strong fundamental, enhanced by overtones that provide excellent separation.
The original case is included with its unique heel resting block, however the hinges are detached from the lid — nothing that a little TLC couldn’t rectify.
$5995.00 with original hard case.
