Here's a unique item. This is a 2013  prototype for what was an already limited run model in 2014. It has several features that differ from the production run.

1. Painted faux F-Holes vs real ones

2. Supertrons vs Filtertrons

3. Black pickguard and pickup rings vs copper

4. Double thumbnail inlays vs single

5. Simpler controls than the production run.

**It does have a paint chip on the back of the headstock which is pictured.**

**it comes in a guild hard case that fits the guitar well. This is how the guitar came to me. It's not known to me if this has a gretsch case originally, but I imagine a case for a current Broadcaster Jr would fit**

The serial number is JT13030002. (Japan-Terada, March 2013) Here is information from gretsch on serial numbers from this era, I've also included a screenshot from their website.

"In January of 2003 the serial number scheme changed from the system previously used by Gretsch Guitars. The first two digits identify the year of production and the second two digits identify the production month. The remaining numbers identify the sequential yearly factory unit number, and include all instruments, in all models, built in that factory, in that specific year.

For example, serial number JT03074463 would break down as:

03: 2003

07: July Production

4463: 4,463rd guitar built in 2003 (all models combined from that factory)

The last four numbers are sequential for the given year (all models combined) and are broken into two categories as follows:

0001 through 0100: Reserved for prototypes, samples, one-offs"

Come on buddy,  let's make us a deal
