Here's an interesting instrument, this 1967 Gretsch Country Gentleman possibly indirectly connected with none other than the legendary Lyle Workman: Though Lyle himself has confirmed that this is not an instrument from his collection, he has verified that the flight tag attached to the included Anvil flight case is apparently his (the original adhesive has deteriorated and the tag has been re-affixed with scotch tape - see detail photo; the name of an ostensible former owner is engraved on one corner of the case). Overall condition is good to very good, with reasonable wear for its age. Please note that there is some cracking and chips in the binding and some pronounced wear at the nut.
*This instrument falls under our used/vintage policy and is therefore ineligible for return.
As pictured, please contact uswith any questions.
