    Hey All, I realize you are all a bunch of bass players as I am but someone here may be interested in this guitar.
    I am looking to trade it for a quality upright-somewhere in the $1200-$1500 range (What I would get for this on EBAY) *** Or High end Combo (Euphonic-AI Contra etc.)
    I will put the guitar up on EBAY in a day or so if nothing happens.

    Thank you- All offers considered.

    VGC Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary-Two Tone Green.
    Mint condition.
    Comes upgraded with Sperzel tuners installed-Also comes with original Gretsch Tuners.
    Comes with late 50's bigsby as well as original trapeze bridge.
    Graphtech nut.
    Pickups were made for Brian Setzer by Seymour Duncan himself-I was managing the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop at the time and happen to get these pickups. (Made with original Gretsch 50's bobbins-50 year old Gretsch alnico magnets and nickel pole pieces wound to Brian's specs. 9k and 8.5k) All the parts came from the original purchase from Fred Gretsch himself.
    The guitar is wired with pickup switching and master volume only.
    EXTREMELY low (Ridiculously low) action if desired without dead spots or buzzing. Even with 11's or 12's this guitar plays / feels like silk.
    OHSC- also in terrific shape.
