A prime example of the work from Gretsch Masterbuilder Stephen Stern, a Gretsch Custom 55 Roc-Jet Relic in black finish.
Stern took the finish on this guitar and dulled it down, giving it the look of a guitar played in smokey bars and clubs for years.
The neck and back of the guitar have been left in their natural color, showing the beautiful grain and quality of the wood
Two Gretsch Dynasonic single coil pickups give the guitar that classic Gretsch tone.
Cream binding around the top of the body, neck, and headstock complete the classy look of this instrument.
There are some dings around the bottom edges of the body, as well as finish checking around the back of the body and the neck.
The relicing is refined, not over the top.
