If you're into Baldwin era Gretsch guitars, this is the one for you.  

All original and clean, clean, clean, with freshly polished frets and a great setup. 

Pre-Baldwin Gretsch guitars can be wonky, and they usually need some work - sometimes significant work on rotten binding, neck resets, etc.  These early 70s guitars are more consistent in their playability.  Gretsch purists will pound me for saying this, but if you want a Chet that'll serve you well on stage and in the studio, well, here ya go!

Original case, paperwork and truss rod wrench included.
