Description

This is the ultimate & very rare late production example of the “Single Cutaway” Country Gent for 1959. Its got an amazingly quilted Maple Top w/a see-thru Walnut finish that could be 1 of the best looking Gretsch Gents ever produced as well as being quite clean showing only some basic play time. Its equipped w/a set of the most inventive black plastic inlaid F-Holes pre-dating its painted on counterparts done by 1961. Its back & sides have some nice figuring to them too.  Its mahogany neck is quite clean showing no checking just a slight center seam seperation that’s been tighten up. Its loaded w/a rare set of transitional faded Gold covered “PAF” Filter’tron pickups w/gold sculpted bezels. Its got Thumb Print inlays in its bound ebony fingerboard. Its original faded gold Grover Imperial tuners are clean & hold true. Its original Gold pickgard has “Sie” (the 1st owners name) scraped into the bottom side of the pickgard. It’s equipped w/a regular production Bigsby Vibrato & a Rocking Bar Bridge. This is a very unusual all original Gent worth considering. It’s exceptionally clean & has a rare original Gold Gent Hang Tag w/a $575. List Price (ridiculously expensive for 1960) & comes in its original Gray tolex hard case.
