Fine example of a mid 1950s Gretsch Synchromatic 6014 model made in New York.

The feel of the neck of this guitar is beautiful. It plays really good and the sound is really well balanced. The guitar has nearly 70 years of playing and is in surprisingly good condition for a guitar its age.  Lots lof nicks and scratches and honest playwear, but the guitar is solid and a terrific player.  Frets are in great shape with no buzzing or fretting out.  The only thing with it I would say is that sections of the binding may need to be replaced someday.  There is some shrinkage and cracking...but it's fairly intact and plays and feels and sounds GREAT as is!  One of the fret markers is also coming up a bit and may need to be replaced/repaired.

The vibe is fantastic, the inlay on the headstock is just stunning, the bridge is beautiful, it intonates perfectly, and the tone is terrific.  Great everyday player!  Comes in a newer padded gigbag.  I will also throw in a brand new surface mount pickup with the deal!
Sold as-is and as described, so ask all questions before you pull the trigger.  And please...make me a reasonable offer if you like it!  You might be pleasantly surprised! 

And , check soundfile to see how it plays up and down the fretboard!
