Gretsch New Yorker 1951
Out of stock
This vintage Gretsch New Yorker left the Gretsch factory in Brooklyn, New York in 1951. The New Yorker was initially designed as an entry level guitar from Gretsch, but it quickly became a popular guitar.
This vintage Gretsch has a laminated maple back and sides with a spruce top. The 2-piece maple neck has a rosewood fretboard with dot inlays. Furthermore, the tuners have been upgraded with Kluson Double Line tuners and the pickguard and bridge have also been replaced.
A common problem with vintage Gretsch guitars is the crumbling of the celluloid binding. This was also the case with this New Yorker. That is why one of the previous owners decided to have the binding around the body replaced. The Gretsch has also received a neck reset.
This Gretsch is well adjusted and plays like butter! The New Yorker has a good projection and a nice low action.
The New Yorker comes with a gig bag.
