Gretsch Committee G7628 Maple Walnut Solidbody Guitar, 1978

Gretsch Committee G7628 Maple Walnut Solidbody Guitar, 1978

The Gretsch Committee G7628 came into being during the era of Baldwin ownership – summer 1967 to early 1985 – and was built from 1977 to 1980. This is a solidly Baldwin era Gretsch Committee G7628, a solid-body, through-neck double cutaway design built of Maple and Black Walnut. With a bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard, it carries a pair of humbucking pickups under a ‘bat-wing’ type pickguard. The pickguard was either opaque or transparent. The pickups feed through a mini-toggle selector switch and individual volume and tone controls. A hardtail bridge strung through the body and enclosed tuners complete the hardware.

The Stelling Bellflower 5-String Banjo is the basis of the Stelling Sunflower Banjo, and features Virginia Black Walnut construction to the Sunflower’s flame maple. This provides a somewhat warmer, rounder tone.   The Bellflower consistently gets rave reviews from its owners.  Stelling established themselves as a benchmark in modern banjo construction with a unique approach to tone ring to rim construction that ensures maximum ring to rim contact for full tonal transmission.
