My uncle has a Gretsch Electromatic and he's planning on selling it to me, but I need some help. Here's the specs I got from him.

Solid Body
Single H pickup.
Tobacco Sunburst Finish
Original Price 1000$+

He's planning on selling it to me for 300 with a case and a little fender amp. But I've no clue what kind it is or what it sounds like, I kinda wanna know what I'm getting into, any help will be appreciated.
