Today Lawman Guitars is Presenting..
A beautiful and historically significant style of guitar. It’s a fantastic example of a Made in the USA, 1955 Gretsch Model 6050 New Yorker Archtop Guitar. All original and in incredible shape! It comes with the original 1950’s Softshell Case that fits it perfectly.
We dated this guitar from the shown serial number inside the sound hole..see pic 6.
This guitar is all original from stem to stern… Beautiful Selected Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides…It has the original wood adjustable bridge, Gretsch branded Fluted Tailpiece, Waverly tuners and even the original Pickguard. It had cracked by the installation screw. We repaired that so be careful with it. Even the original GEIB softshell case…Wow…This guitar is really cool!
The action on this guitar is very very good. It had previously had a neck off neck reset so you don’t need to worry about that. . The original frets are still in marvelous shape. There is no need for any replacements any time soon.
The sound of this guitar is very distinctive…I had a Gretsch Synchromatic and it sounds a lot like that…only better…Hard to describe but very distinctive. The woods on this body are beautiful and the sound is very crisp. Not brittle, but crisp. A finger picker would love this guitar. Very clear notes and chords emulate from this awesome archtop body. If you have been looking for a cool 1950’s Arch Top Guitar. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer one for this kind of money.
Check out the original GEIB Softshell Case…As nice as the guitar. Geib cases were very high quality and the best soft shell cases you could buy back in the day.. All latches, handle and hinges are original and operating properly. Very good interior with the accessory box still here. It even still has the original Geib raised metal logo. See pic 5.
This guitar is beautiful but vintage and used so it is sold as-is no returns. However, I have been hand picking my customers guitars for over 17 years now. They have all loved the instruments I find them.. This cool Gretsch will certainly not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
