FS Gretsch Electromatic Baritone

Lovingly referred to as Barry Sparklepants, this bad boy has been a bit of a fun point of difference in the surf band. I’m finding that I just don’t use it so it’s time to let him sparkle somewhere else.

Plays great, and growls like a New York Cab Driver. It would be amazing with a pair of p90s (which should fit the existing pickup routes).

Comes with a hard case. I’m after $650 plus shipping.

Oh man. Blues slide on a baritone is such a good sound, and that is such a sparkly guitar, and such a good price. Oh man.

I’ve got it tuned B-B but it can also be tuned C-C. I can’t remember what gauge strings I have on it :oops:

Did I mention that it growls like a detective from the 1940s who’s seen too many murders like this one?
