About This Listing

I'm selling this rare Gretsch Champagne Jet for Marshall. He's had it for over 3 decades. A handwritten letter of provenance will accompany the guitar.
It's THE guitar in the American Bandstand video below.

Quote: "I got this guitar in 1983 while on tour with D. Hall and J. Oates. GE Smith played it one night; I asked him after the show if he wanted to sell it. He gave it to me the next day as a gift. I used this one onstage a lot in 1983.  
A little belt buckle wear, and had a Tune-O-Matic bridge for awhile, and also a Bigsby. The two gold screws are remnants of the Bigsby., but it has all the original stuff back on it now.
The guitar had no pickguard when I got it. This one got put on during the '80s at some point."
