I have come to the conclusion that I need a thinner bodied guitar than this beautiful Gretsch. I am currently looking at the Rat Rod/Tri Five models so this one has to go:

The Sweetwater exclusive model. It features a more vintage accurate orange finish with the curious mixed gold/silver hardware found on the original 1959 model. The guitar is in near showroom condition with no dents/dings or other cosmetic or structural issues. A Gretsch hard case is included. I'm not a fan of shipping guitars anymore but will do so if a local(ish) buyer can't be found. I'd be willing to meet the buyer with a 2 hour drive of central Illinois. I do have all the original packaging if shipping is involved. $850 for a local sale. Buyer will pay shipping and insurance costs if shipping is involved. Will ship to the CONUS only.

Only at Sweetwater: gold hardware on Vintage Orange finish
5-Ply maple top, back, and sides add snap and definition to your sound

Just to clarify: I will certainly ship this guitar if need be. I'm just hoping for a local-ish buyer to avoid shipping costs & risk of the goons who sometimes damage fine instruments.

Absolutely no interest or response? I think it's priced fairly but maybe I'm wrong. I bet if I set the price at 10 bucks it would sell quickly :)

Not telling you what to set your sale price to, just saying that these sell new for $900. If I get 10% off or have a 15% off coupon for Sweetwater or Guitar Center etc, I could get a brand new one for the same price or better. Just food for thought.

Great guitar here.

Understood, and I appreciate the input. There is a $150 Gretsch case involved and I pretty much expected someone to at least reach out with a lower offer but it's been crickets and that's a bit surprising. I'm not too concerned because I don't really need to sell & every time I pick it up I question why I'd let it go.

Oh - didn’t realize it came with a hardcase. That’s nice!

If you don’t need the dough, I’d keep it. If I’d seen it before I ordered mine, last weekend, I would have probably bought yours. With tax and no case, mine was almost a grand.

I Just sold one about a month ago for $750 without a case... but to be honest I think I got lucky. You just need to have the right person come along.

I should have kept mine... seemed just a bit enough better than the regular stock version (Korea Vs China?).

" I've just come to prefer a thinner bodied guitar."

Buy mine.
