"Description: 100% all original, vintage 1957 Gretsch 6130 Roundup electric guitar. This gorgeous guitar was part of a 17-piece collection we just recently acquired, with several of them being vintage Gretsches.

Cosmetic Condition: Great condition for its age. There are various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches & light weather checking. A lot of the gold hardware has tarnished, but some of it is still evident. No cracks, breaks or repairs. Overall the guitar was well-cared for over the years.

Neck: Nicely rounded mahogany neck with cream-colored binding with red micro side-dot markers. Beautiful, dark rosewood fingerboard with pearloid humpblock inlays. Original frets are in great shape with no wear. Bound headstock with inlaid Gretsch logo & horseshoe. Gold Grover open-back tuners in perfect working condition. 1 11/16" nut width - original nut.

Body: Single-cutaway, semi-hollow mahogany body with maple top finished in translucent orange. Four-ply top binding (b/w/b/w); ultra-cool tooled leather trim with western motif; "G" cutout tailpiece with western motif buckle; gold Melita bridge; tortoise-style pickguard with steer head logo.

Pickups: DeArmond single coils. Bridge - 4.59K ohms; Neck - 4.68K ohms. Master volume & tone controls. Individual volume controls for each pickup. All the control knobs are original with the "G" Arrow emblem. 3-way pickup selector.

Set Up: Professionally set up by our guitar tech & strung with brand new Ernie Ball .10-.46 gauge Slinkys. The guitar has been fully checked over & tested; everything functions properly.

Playability / Sound: Fabulous action - the neck plays & feels great! Powerful tone with nice dynamics -warm & smooth all the way to sinister & creepy! This is one wicked guitar!

Case: Original tweed hardshell case included - how cool is that!"
