Gretsch / Round-up / 1955 / Mahogany / Guitar
Welcome to JTKM SUDIO.
Here is a true piece of history which will interest Gretsch collectors and players alike; a stunning 1955 Mahogany Gretsch Round-Up complete with its original and beautiful tweed case.
Once again we shall let the photos to the talking. You’re looking at a one owner, uncirculated 1955 Gretsch Round-up freshly presented to the vintage guitar market for the first time. This one is free from the usual Gretsch syndrome of rotten binding, re-set neck or poor break angles. This stunning Gretsch plays, sounds and feels wonderful and needs nothing. This piece is very similar to the Gretsch Round-up which recently featured in the Vintage Guitar Magazine.
Equipped a pair of incredible sounding and well-balanced single-coil DeArmond pickups, a chambered mahogany body and FULL western features. Hello cows, hello cacti, hello G brand and a warm welcome to the engraved leather detail. A truly stunning piece of history!
The Round-up is in wonderful condition, especially given its age. There have only been two alterations in its life-time, that being the pickguard being replaced and two parts of the G string tuner have been replaced (and one of the screws). Both of these alterations can be sourced online, in fact there is a full set of gold tuners are on Reverb right now in the USA for around £100. Aside from that you’re looking at a 100% original and clean Gretsch.
There you have it, a truly wonderful and very rare Gretsch which is very hard to put down. It’s even harder to stop looking at it!
