Gretsch Acoustic Guitar

I have a large hollow body Gretsch acoustic guitar, serial # 23195 which research tells me should be a 1957 Model. There is no model # visible on the inside label.

cases

I've been looking for a hard case for my pro jet for months. The gator, that claims to fit all guitars, is too small. Does anyone have a source for gretsch hard cases? Help!

Re: cases

I know this isn't in response to your problem, maybe it'll help with your search or help someone else...I don't have the pro jet but, the electromatic 5120. I've found that the acoustic jumbo case at musicians friend fits it perfect.

Gretch "Mystery" Guitar

The Dealer tells me the model number is G3700-CT7TS, it is new, it is priced at $669.00, looks like a Gretsch Rancher Jr., but has a small I.D. plate listing it as " Heritage." I can not find this 6 string, acoustic-electric, made in Korea, listed on the internet??? In fact, I found the G3700 to be listed as a 12 string. The guitar in question is a sunburst model and I need to find out more about it. Sounds really good. What is it, where can I get it on the internet, and what is it worth? Thanks

Re: Gretch

This guitar was discontinued, but I have one possibly would sell, are you interested?

Re: Gretch

The Gretsch G3700 is a 6 string acoustic and is the best sounding I have ever played. It is a jumbo. I had one and gave it to my best friend and now it is his favorite. If that is the one, check it out on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-05-Gretsch-G6120-1960-Nashville-Lennon-Beatles_W0QQitemZ7404988018QQcategoryZ33041QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Also, guitar center sells it. It goes for about $650 to $700 dollars. WORTH IT!!

Re: Gretch

I bought the same guitar! Music City in Schererville, IN had one on the wall and after playing Martins and Taylors, I found the sound and playing ability remarkable. I had to own it. Now...I'm not sure what I bought, other than the fact that it plays well and sounds great. I would not part with it! I too would love some info.
