Description

This is the very coolest & very rare late production example of the “Single Cutaway” Country Gent for 1960. Its got an amazingly flamey & killer quilted Maple Top w/a see-thru Walnut finish that could be the best looking Gretsch Gent ever produced as well as being quite clean showing only some basic play time. Its equipped w/a set of the grooviest 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 nor discoloration. 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 a crackle by the screw but perfectly intact. Its equipped w/a Bigsby V cutout 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.
