    Original 1957 Gretsch Duo-Jet in Cadillac Green

    Selling my 1957 Gretsch Duo-Jet in RARE Cadillac Green. All original down to the screws and solder joints. DeArmond pickups, Grover open-back tuners, thumbnail inlays, Melita bridge, and Bigsby. It's 100\% real and original. Paint too! No repairs or oversprays of any kind and never had any structural issues or repairs ever. Has some lacquer checking and edge wear which is expected for a 56 year old guitar. Back of neck has areas where the black lacquer has worn thru from honest play wear. Case looks like a '60 or '61 to me but this is what it was in years ago when I acquired it and the original owner said it was always in this case.

          It is old, has a Bigsby, and has some paint wear.  But it isn't beat up.

            Cool guitar. Not overly exciting as such, but the history makes it fascinating.
