Truss rod access above the bone nut. Nickel Grover tuners with small nickel buttons.
The ebony fingerboard has half circle yellow pearloid inlays. Comfortable rounded “V” profile neck with nickel strap button installed. Cream heelcap.

These recent Gretsch guitars are built quite well. They seem to be a little more solidly-built than even their 1950’s and 1960’s predecessors.
The more recent TV Jones pickups are respected as much as any of the original Gretsch pickups.
This guitar is in exceptional condition except for two small dents in the finish in the top.
The original case is also in great new condition.
