This is a used Gretsch G5220 Electromatic that recently came into our shop on trade. This guitar was well cared for but shows a few signs of wear like small scuffs and scratches, a bit of pickswirl, a few fingerprints, and an ever-so-slightly loose volume knob nearest to the bridge. Additionally, the original strap buttons have been replaced, and as part of that process, their threaded studs were replaced as well, which left some repair marks and scratches in the finish under and around the strap buttons. Note that the replacement buttons don't screw down all the way on the studs to reach the body of the guitar, so there's a very small gap between the base of the buttons and the body of the guitar. None of these cosmetic blemishes affect the sound or function of this guitar, and in fact, it plays better than most stock G5220s because of some extensive fretwork that was recently completed. A Gretsch-branded fitted hardcase is included, also with a few light scuffs, mostly around the edges.
Feel free to contact us with any questions or to request additional photos. And remember, this Gretsch guitar ships FREE within the continental United States. Buyers outside the continental U.S. should message us for a shipping quote prior to purchase.
