Here we have a Gretsch Electromatic 6182-3 “Corvette” 1954. The Corvette 6182 was originally offered in both a sunburst finish as well as a clear natural finish. The natural model was called the Model 6183. Both guitars feature a 16-inch wide (non-cutaway) body with unbound f-holes and a tortoise pickguard.

About the Gretsch 6182 Corvette 1954

The Gretsch Corvette is a nice vintage guitar with laminated maple back- and sides and laminated spruce top. On the “Electromatic” headstock we find the characteristic Gretsch T-roof logo and a cool “zig-zag” motif. The original tuners are changed with modern Gotoh tuners. The original open-geared tuners are still present, but the buttons are changed for modern ones.

The double bound maple neck has a chunky C-profile with a 1 11/16’ nut width, somewhat similar to most of the 1950s and early 60s Gibson guitars.

This vintage Jazzbox is equipped with a DeArmond Dynasonic single-coil pickup. Very strong and clear sounding pickups. It’s currently set up with .12 flatwound strings.

Comes with an original Ess & Ess Gretsch case.
