When Gibson debuted its flagship L-5CES electric archtop in 1951, the Fred Gretsch Guitar Co. introduced its Electro II model as a competitor. Designated model 6193 in blonde finish and 6192 in sunburst, this model would be rechristened the Country Club in 1954, the year this handsome example rolled out of the Brooklyn factory. Boasting celebrity players like Al Caiola, Mundell Lowe and Mary Osborne, the Country Club was the company's top-shelf electric, and according to Gretsch maven Jay Scott, significantly outsold the L-5CES through the rest of the decade. A perennial favorite of jazz and pop players alike, the Country Club has remained in the Gretsch catalog to this day. With its full depth 17" arched maple body with Venetian cutaway, the Country Club was most closely equivalent to the Gibson ES-350, with its full length 25 1/2" scale. Equipped with twin adjustable DeArmond Dynasonic single coil pickups, the 6193 is configured with controls including master volume, master tone, three-way pickup selector switch, and individual pickup volume controls.This outstanding example is a rare first-year Country Club, with transitional features including the Synchromatic headstock logo, block inlays from the third fret, Grover Sta-Tite tuners, clear control knobs and bound tortoise pickguard, all seen for the last time this model year.This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel strings (.012-.054) See direct link in the webb site: http://www.hendrixguitars.com/Va888.htm
