|Serial Number||GP99114473, built 2003 in Korea.|
|Pricing||$675 CND with case.|
|Neck||Maple neck with bound rosewood fingerboard, Gretsch neo-classic ‘thumbnail’ markers and dots on binding. 24.75″ scale length, 1 11/16″ nut width. The headstock uses a scarf joint, so it’s very strong.|
|Frets||20 medium frets in excellent condition with no appreciable wear.|
|Body||Laminated maple slim hollow body with cats-eye soundholes.|
|Finish||Tobacco sunburst gloss finish in very good shape.|
|Hardware/electronics||Neck-mount mini-humbucking pickup, volume and tone controls on tortoise pickguard, output jack on side. Rosewood adjustable bridge with Gretsch Stair-step base. G-cutout tailpiece and sealed mini-tuners.|
|Playability/Action||Plays very cleanly, a great little guitar for jazz use.|
|Case||Hardshell dreadnaught case included.|
|Comments||This is a relatively unusual guitar, and even more so as left handed. Gretsch introduced the Korean-built Historic Series line in 1999, and the last examples were made in 2003, replaced by the Electromatic line. Overall, this is a very nice little jazz guitar, just a bit bigger than a George Benson but smaller than an ES-175; it’s fully hollow with just longitudinal strut bracing.|
