Gretsch Electric Guitars - 1967 7660 Chet Atkins Nashville

$2,400.00

SOLD. Call us for options.

This Gretsch Nashville 7660 hollow-body was built in August 1976 and was one of the last series of American-made Gretsch guitars. It's is in Very Good condition - especially considering it's nearly 40 years old. As the name implies, it's perfect for country music, but equally good for rock and rockabilly, or a fusion of all three, why not? All-original, it has black-padded FilterTron humbuckers and a Bigsby vibrato system, still shining.

There is some minimal play wear, a few dings and scratches, just beneath the pickguard and above the bass side f-hole. There is some fretwear, but nothing that affects playing or its sound. Speaking of which - it sounds awesome. Great tone, with warmth and depth. The deep, wine red finish looks as good as it probably did in the '70s, and the vibrato is equally smooth. It has one Master Volume knob and separate volume controls for each pickup, a stand-by on/off/on toggle switch, and a three-way toggle for tone that engages three different capacitors. Overall, this Gretsch Nasvhille 7660 hollow-body is an historic and genuinely cool guitar that's absolutely worth checking out. The original hard case is included too.
