Hey everyone! was in a local guitar shop recently to try out some Les Pauls, and saw this hanging on the wall

no model name that i could see, was in decent condition and only said Gretsch on the headstock in a this a common model or did i find something cool?

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

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

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
