This is the Gretsch Electromatic version of Bo Diddley's iconic "Twang Machine". It plays and sounds great and is a very resonant little guitar weighing 8 pounds even. The only things keeping this guitar from being listed as "Excellent" are a couple of dings, one on the top below the bridge and another on the bottom corner (see pics).  It comes with a Gator brand gig bag.
