1957 Gretsch 6168 Clipper


1957 Gretsch 6168 Clipper in excellent original condition! This is a great arch top for the $$. Label is present, manufactured in Brooklyn. Original in every way that we can see, save for a pro refret and a neck reset. If we’re being honest, the neck reset is not the cleanest we’ve seen. Frets are in great shape and seem to be relatively fresh- so it plays great. Original (?) Rosewood bridge- there is a small crack near the tailpiece that is stable and does not appear to have any flex in it. Chunky “U” neck is just right- very comfortable. Nut width = 1.62″

Sounds great acoustically, very loud and crisp- but plugged in the original Gretsch single coil pickup really shines! Punchy and very bright (unless you want to roll back the tone)!
