Made in the UK, circa 1895, this is late 19th century British craftsmanship at its very best. Features the English "tunneled" 5th string system - no annoying 5th string tuner halfway down the neck!
I admit I was a bit sceptical at first, when you said it shouldn't be too hard finding a vintage Gretsch 'New Yorker' for my (very meagre) budget. When you came through with details on three really nice looking ones I was still sceptical about how good they could really be for the prices you were quoting me. As you know I eventually bit the bullet and took a gamble on you. Well, I can't thank you enough. To receive a 1952 'New Yorker' in this condition, FOR THIS STUPIDLY LITTLE AMOUNT OF MONEY, is unreal!! I can't thank you enough for making this part time musician a VERY happy man.
