The Gretsch G100CE is a stunning arch top that's reminiscent of the early Synchromatics of the 1940s. Boasting a spruce top, maple back and sides, 3-piece maple neck, and a floating pickup for ultra-jazzy tone, you'll also enjoy this arch top's Chromatic tailpiece, Synchronized bridge, pearloid block inlays, stylized f-holes, and vintage headstock logo that all contribute to the G100CE's decidedly Art Deco look. 

 This used instrument plays and sounds killer! It's in great shape, and also has 2 very important modifications:

The upgraded Vintage Vibe floating Charlie Christian-style pickup really brings it to life with its incredibly warm tone that adds clarity and the ability to cut through the mix.  Check out the video to hear how it sounds in comparison to the original pickup.  The player demonstrates this by using both flat-picking and and fingerstyle techniques.  You'll be able to hear how amazing this pickup sounds.

Also, the stock bridge was replaced by a Tru Arcs Bridgeworks brass, radius-correct bridge,

The G100CE is a stellar guitar, but these 2 upgrades make this a top notch arch top.  At this price, it's a great deal, and includes a hard case!
