Description: Vintage Gretsch Synchromatic archtop acoustic guitar in
sunburst finish. This guitar was recently purchased from a private
collector who informed us he had acquired it from another dealer as an
auction piece from the Scott Chinery collection. Unfortunately there is
no paperwork to act as provenance, only his good word. There are no labels or markings
anywhere on the guitar to indicate the exact model or year, and there
are various features on the guitar which make it somewhat of an anomaly.
In other words, it's a rather unique & intriguing piece.

Condition: There are various lacquer cracks in the sides ranging from
about 2 to 6 inches in length. We looked inside the guitar & there
is no evidence of any repair work. The cracks are stable & there is
no movement. There's some finish chipping around the neck heel. Some
light surface scratches & light weather checking as well throughout the body.

Two-piece maple neck in sunburst finish with cream-colored binding
& black side-dot markers. Rosewood fingerboard with pearloid block
inlays depicting western motif. Original frets are in great shape with
no wear; zero fret. Bound headstock with ebony overlay. Inlaid Gretsch
& horseshoe logos. Gold Grover Imperial tuners with square buttons
all in perfect working condition. 1 11/16" nut width; 25 1/2" scale

Body: Arched top & back with carved spruce top &
bound cat eye F-holes. Flame maple back & sides with multiple
binding on the top & back. Gold Gretsch "G" Cadillac tailpiece with
ebony art deco stairstep bridge & tortoise style pickguard. 17"
lower bout width; 12" upper bout width; 3 1/2" body depth.

Set Up: Professionally set up by our luthier & strung with brand new Martin .12-.54 med-light gauge strings.

Playability / Sound: Nice action - neck plays well. Bright tone with nice projection.

Case: Vintage tweed hardshell case included.
