Gretsch Synchromatic acoustic

I received a Synchromatic acoustic from a relative recently. He said he bought it in the 30's before he went to war. He claims he bought it around 1935/36. According to the research I have found, Gretsch didnt manufacture this guitar until 1939? The serial number on the guitar is (2648). Again according to my research this would put the production of this instrument to February 1936. This doesn't jive with the history production dates for the Synchromatic's?

Any theories or answers would be greatly appreciated.

Gretsch Country Club

I have a 1979 Gretsch Country Club, Natural Finish, Gold Hardware, Bigsby, 2 PU's. The question I have is the Pick-ups are a Filter-tron and what appears to be a Super-tron. Is this correct? I thought it was suppose to be 2 Filter-tron pick-up's. The gut I bought it from said it was bought this way. Please give me soome info on this. I have pics if you will email me at saybees@yahoo.com

Thanks,
Billy

Re: Gretch shobro resonator guitar

Dear Ray,

I am visiting my father in Arkansas and he has a Gretch resonator shobro he would like to sell. He had asked me to go on line to try and find the manufacture. When we opened the case last week the tail piece was broken in two. He would like to replace this piece before he advertises it.

He has not priced it as yet but if you are still interested you could email me and I will get the message to him. I will be on the road as of October 9th and will not be getting my emails until the 14th or 15th. I will check to see if you have replied before I get on the road.

Thank you. Diane

Gretsch guitar. Burl Ives moidel

Would like to know about when it was made and what it might have cost and what it might be worth today.

Thanks

Re: Gretsch guitar. Burl Ives moidel

I acquired a Gretsch Burl Ives in 1960 from original owner and had it restored thru Gretsch in 1980. No idea of value, because there doesn't seem to be much interest in this guitar--and there aren't many left in circulation.
