This is a vintage 1979 Gretsch BST-1000 electric guitar. This Gretsch 8210 model, otherwise known as “The Beast,” is an accessible and affordable budget solidboody made in the USA. This example is in poor/good condition, and while it is 100% all original, the neck pickup is missing a string screw, and there appear to be drying cracks around the bolt-on neck screws. Otherwise, the guitar is entirely functional and it sounds great. The action is consistently low over the length of the fingerboard, and it plays great.
