So i was at guitar center this weekend, just minding my own business, playing guitar, and this guy walks up to me and was like, "hey, i see you can play guitar, do you want one?" so i looked at it and he said, "the wiring is fried, but you can get it repaired here." so, i took it. not knowing what it was, everyone in guitar center was looking it up trying to find out what it was but they didnt know! so i looked it up and declared it was a gretsch bst-1000 circa, 1979.

If i get the wiring fixed, and i take all of the stickers off, (which there are tons of... ) how much would this go for? Everything on it is stock (im pretty sure) and its in fairly good condition.

And also, if i were to sell it, where should i sell it? online or in store? which store? which site? how can i get MORE money out of this? thank you for any help.

Personally, i wouldn't sell it. If you can get it fixed up and looking good, a guitar such as that will probably only ever gain value. However, if you still want to sell it i would go online as that way you get to keep more of the money instead of a shop taking a cut.

Edit: Im afraid i don't know how much it would go for but it will probably be a good amount. For a place to sell it look into Specialist Gretsch websites.


Gear:
Fender American Standard Strat
Parts Built Mayer Strat
Blackstar HT-Dist, DL-4, Crybaby, Polytune

I like John Mayer, deal with it.

Well this guitar isn't "my kind" of guitar. i play metal, and this guitar doesn't look or probably sound very metal like.

Oh, okay See what you mean.
Probably best to go to a specialist gretsch website though...they'll know a lot more about it than most people on here will

I would keep it. I believe that was the Baldwin era for Gretsch. So I don't think it would be of any real value to anyone. I think, if some one would correct me if I'm wrong on the era.

boxedit: There is 2 on fleabay no bids $549.00 and $749.00 so think what you will. The $549.00 ends in 30 minutes with no watchers.
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.
