This 1959 Gretsch Anniversary model is a pleasure to play with comfortable action and a good neck. The patent applied for Filter'Tron pickup looks nice and sounds great. The electronics function perfectly and sound outstanding. The original frets are in great condition and the original white Gretsch Brooklyn NY label is fully intact and bears the serial number 34777. The Anniversary model was only available with humbucking Filter'Tron pickup or pickups from 1958-1961. This is the nicest 50's vintage guitar we have even seen! The rarity of the Filter'tron pickup in the first three years, plus the overall exceptional condition of this guitar eclipses all the others of that era listed.
