1979 Gretsch Beast BST-1000 in Coco Beach FL for $400

Neat late 70's Gretsch. Evolution of the Corvette.  These have their fans for sure - there are several different levels of the Beast and this 1000 is the lowest.  There is a 1500 and I think a 3000 and maybe a 5000 model too. This one has a bolted neck that is partially set (volute?) and I think those chrome humbuckers are Dimarzio's underneath but some people say Seymour Duncans.  Either way these are good hard rock guitars.  There is a Youtube video of one of these that gives a good idea of the sound.

    is he still for sale?


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.
