Gretsch 7506 Acoustic guitar from 1972 with an unusual bridge.

guitarz.blogspot.com:




This Gretsch 7506 initially caught my eye as it was not what I think of when I see the words "Gretsch" and "Acoustic" together. I'm used to the more ubiquitous triangular sound-hole that I thought was common to all of their flattop offerings. 

Again, I stand corrected.

Here we have a very traditional folk acoustic guitar. This made in the USA guitar has a couple of Gretsch hints, the headstock, the back access panel to the truss adjustment, and the 3 piece sadd..................le......what? Is? Going on?

Apparently I'd never seen the Tri-Saddle that they used on their acoustic guitars in the early 1970s. Is this extremly rare, or have i just missed it all these years?

Currently listed for $1000 Canadian dollars.

  1. I have to admit that I've never seen one of these before, either. I'm curious about the purpose of the short saddle under the 'B' string.

  3. Guitarz is not what it was. There is no reason to visit more then once a month. Gavin, you admitted you asked for new posters and did not respond to people interested creating content. Its obvious Rob took it on but did all he could. Guitarz is a great community. You should open it up and be a publisher/editor. Expand and allow viewers to contribute before we all wonder off.
