1979 Gretsch Committee in Austin for $650

Not sure what they are going for these days but these Committees were some of the last of the Gretsch USA guitars before that company changed hands - and changed hands again. This "Neck Thru layered Walnut body style" was all the rage for about 10 minutes in the late 70's - inspired by the mighty Alembic basses before being quickly relegated to a slew of import Vantage and Westone guitars. Reminds me of Stanley Jordan's guitar. Sustain should be very nice on this. Though with the original black pickguard missing the aesthetics are up in the air. Still a fairly rare and unique USA made electric with a solid pedigree.

Vintage Gretsch - $650 (Northwest Austin)

For sale, awesome Vintage Gretsch Committee guitar. I believe this one was issued in 1978 and it's in great shape. All original except for the pick ups which are TVJ Powerterons. Original pick ups are included in sale and comes with original Gretsch case. This thing screams and it has perfect neck width and body weight. Not too heavy and definitely not a light weight. Also, neck width is just right for players like me who have fat fingers. $650 or best offer

  1. JC, I have a question for you on the value of an old kay. I love your blog, and though maybe you could help... Thanks


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
