|Serial Number||N/A, built 1968.|
|Pricing||$1650.00 CND with original case. No Longer Available|
|Neck||Maple neck with unbound rosewood fingerboard, dot markers and zero fret. 29″ scale length. Gretsch logo plate on headstock.|
|Frets||Zero fret, 22 frets in total, minor wear. Strung with flatwounds, so frets wear less rapidly.|
|Body||Laminated maple body, 16″ wide and 2″ thick; rear access plate (with pad). Top is bound.|
|Finish||Walnut nitrocellulose gloss finish in reasonable condition, painted-on F-holes.|
|Hardware/electronics||Van Ghent tuners, single Super ‘Tron pickup master volume, tone switch, mute and standby switch. Mute is missing the pad but the mechanism works. Space control bridge and G-cut tailpiece.|
|Playability/Action||Plays well and cleanly; the 29″ scale makes for a comfortable bass with a shorter reach.|
|Case||Original case included.|
|Comments||Gretsch basses are fairly unusual; they couldn’t overcome the Fender juggernaut, and with the exponential rise of stage volume levels as amplification evolved, hollowbody instruments were a risk. This is a good-condition example of a single-pickup 6071 bass.|
