Here is a previously owned Gretsch Synchromatic 160 that has been loved for so many years.  It has the right amount of relic with its fine wine aged color and finish checking.  The original Kluson tuners are covered in a smooth brass patina and are still as smooth as ever!  The frets seem to be a brass alloy, so you get the right amount of jangle.  

Feel the resonation and balance of warmth/brightness with a flamed maple back/sides and a cedar top.  The catseye soundhole shapes give you a unique projection that still feel close and personal while maintaining a tight bass and midrange.  The saddle is a dark rich piece of rosewood with brass posts.  Lastly it comes with the original hardcase!

The metal bridge piece and the fretboard binding have been replaced, but everything else is original!  There are some dings and scratches around the guitar (as shown in pictures) There is also a thin crack that has been repaired on the top, however the guitar is structurally sound!  There are two crackle spots on the pickgaurd, and some cracks in the binding.
