Gretsch Masterbuilt Aged Seafoam Green Penguin Custom Shop Relic Stephen Stern RARE!
8lbs 9oz. These are almost impossible to get with a 2+ year waiting list! This one is fresh from the Gretsch Custom Shop!
The Gretsch Penguin is one of the rarest Gretsch models of all time. With production beginning in 1955, it is believed that fewer than 100 were made before discontinued in 1964. Original features include a Duo-Jet body shape and Falcon peghead, pearl humptop inlays, and a roller space control bridge. It has truly has become a rare and covetable guitar.
Master builder Stephen Stern has tirelessly recreated the vintage specs of the original 1955 Penguin, and aged it to appear as it would today. The body features finish checking and light age marks, the gold hardware appears to have been used for years, and the peghead veneer has not discolored as would be seen on an actual '55. This Penguin not only looks great, but plays and sounds fantastic as well!
