1959 Gretsch Single Anniversary
Out of stock
Music Store Live is proud to present this 1959 Gretsch Single Anniversary! This Anniversary is a sweet sounding piece of guitar making history and it plays extremely well. Perfect for Jazz, Blues or Country honky-tonking, this big beauty will work in a variety of musical contexts. Clean, the tone is fat and warm, and with a little grit, it really thickens up and gets some attitude. The neck is straight, the action is low and even and the intonation is dialed in very well. It plays very well for a guitar that's already passed its 50th birthday. This Anniversary Gretsch provides a wonderful vintage guitar experience.
In 1958, Gretsch commemorated the company's 75th birthday with special "Diamond Anniversary" model guitars, and this single pickup model is all original. This 1959 Gretsch Anniversary has a maple hollow body with a lovely Sunburst finish. The maple neck has a very pleasing profile that is somewhere between a C and U shape. The body is well outlined with white binding which has faded to a buttery cream color. The single Filter'Tron PAF pickup is wired to a three way tone switch and master volume knob which provides a wide variety of tones for a single pickup guitar. Other features include open geared tuners, a Gretsch pickguard, thumbnail inlays, dual F-holes and a rosewood fretboard. This Anniversary comes with a new Gretsch hard shell case. This 100% original guitar is aging very well and doesn't show any signs of slowing down.
This Gretsch has aged wonderfully and still exudes the same hollowbody warmth that it did in 1959. Perfect for collectors or the player who wants true vintage tone.
