Gretsch / COUNTRY CLUB 6193 / 1960 / BLOND - NATURAL / Guitar
Besides all the standard features of the 6193 model for 1960 (two Filtertrons, two volumes master knobs, tone and pickup selector switches, Grover Imperial stairstep tuners, 'space-roller' bridge, etc.) this guitar has many rare appointments. First, a laminated spruce top instead of the usually-seen maple. Laminated five-piece neck (maple and prob. mahogany), just like the 6120 from the same year you see in our private collection, only 110 digits away from this one's serial number. The body is made of very flamed maple, absolutely gorgeous. And most of all, there is a detail never encountered on a Country Club: the 'sound post' inside of the body, typical of single-cut 6120s, early Tennesseans, which connects top and back to reduce feedback. FilterTrons are one 'Patent Applied For' (PAF) and one Patent Number, not uncommon for 1960, when both covers were used. G-cutout tailpiece, 'neo-classic' ebony fretboard with thumbprint inlays, G/arrow knobs. Everything is 100% original, in excellent plus condition. No heavy dings, no heavy wear. The only cosmetical flaw is heavy gold-plating wear of the hardware, almost gone from knobs, switches, pickup covers. It comes with the original case ,Gretsch Warranty Card and 'OK Card', both with the guitar's serial number. An exceptional guitar, rare and beautiful, with the same sound and circuitry of period's 6120s, but with an unique look and personality, with a great natural blond finish and a fantastic flamed maple body.
