    '80s maybe...not a "real" Gretsch.

    I saw a guitar once, weird looking thing with a three-bolt neck, two HB's and a Strat style bridge. I think it was MIJ, but I'm not sure. There was nothing Gretschy about it.
     
  3. The only thing I know is that the guy in the Monkeeys played one. It looked like a gorilla bass. Big!! :p:p

    Just pulled the neck it has written in pencil in the pocket "3-26-6"
     
  7. I've never seen a Gretsch that looked similar to that one...hopefully someone will have more info. It really would help to get close-ups of the headstock and the pickup.

    Sorry that was a long time ago. I don't remember. Not the bottom one though.
