No clue what that is, but definitely something vintage.

Looks to me like a Gretsch New Yorker without a pickguard.

From a quick search on New Yorkers, seems like the logo is different on this one. did just a little research and it looks like Gretsch used the banner style logo like i saw on this one prior to 1955...not sure how accurate that is, if any Gretsch experts care to confirm this or not

found a similar example, the one in this shops seems to have been modded with the pickup which i think is kind of awesome. i think i found a similar example. seems to match

Looks like an old new Yorker did they make that model back then don't think it was a Syncromatic they all seem to have ornate bridges

As a Gretsch obsessive that guitar is pure sex.

so roughly what would this guitar go for with the mods and all? Honestly i dig the fact they threw a pickup in it. I'm a big Jack White fan and it kinda has that certain "mojo" to it like something he would play...maybe it's just me lol
