Gretsch G5120

Post by bryceee »

It's a lovely wall hanging but it needs to be played, so I am selling my Gretsch G5120 Electromatic Hollow Body guitar.
I have had it a while but just haven't used it. :o
As far as I can tell it's immaculate and everything works as it should. The strings could do with changing - I'll throw in two new sets.

And a nice straight neck:

You'll have to repaint the wall when you sell it.

That looks soooo cool!

Wish I could play one of them things or the spare cash to keep it as an ornament!
Not enough basses and amps.
