About the Gretsch Princess 1963

With the introduction of the Gretsch Princess in 1962 Gretsch aimed for a new market. This model, with its distinguished features such as the sparkly Princess sign on the pickguard, was made to convince young teenage girls to pick up the guitar. Unfortunately, the Gretsch Princess didn’t impress a lot of feminine guitarists and as a result these models are quite rare today. The Princess was discontinued in 1964. Honestly, we at the Guitar Company don’t understand why. This is a serious rock ‘n roll powerhouse that can be used to play a variety of styles. If you’re not afraid of a bit of stagemojo, this is your guitar.

This version has a white body and funky gold pickguard + hardware. The Gretsch Princess has the same specifications as the Corvette. Only, the finish is fancier, gold hardware and a backpad. It’s in all original condition, only two of the tuners are a bit crooked, but works just fine.

This guitar has not seen a lot of action. It’s been in storage for years and years. Unfortunately, the Gretsch was stored in a gig-bag with plastic lining and throughout the years the plastic has been reacting with the nitrocellulose lacquer. The reaction caused some “damage” on the finish, see photos.

If you’re too cool for school, come see if you can handle this pretty Princess.
