Description

Up for sale is a sweet 2016 Gretsch G6138 Bo Diddley in Firebird Red. Easily one of the most iconic looking Gretsch guitars and quite a head turner. This example shows light sings of play wear including minor dings, dents and light surface scratches. A previous owner removed some of the gloss finish from the neck giving it a smooth feel. Pro setup in house and includes a hardshell case. Model specs below:

Bo Diddley rocked fans with his sterling chops, electrifying showmanship and outrageous guitars for more than 50 years. The G6138 is a faithful reproduction of the famous rectangular guitar Gretsch built especially for him in 1958.

Its features include a striking semi-hollow body, three-piece rock maple neck, ebony fingerboard with pearl dot inlays, 1957-style headstock, dual High Sensitive Filter'Tron™ humbucking pickups, Adjusto-Matic™ bridge, G-cutout tailpiece, gold hardware and special Bo Diddley signature truss rod cover.
