Gretsch Anniversary Sparkle Diamond Anniversary Model Set

This is a fantastic piece of Gretsch history for anyone who ...well anyone!

 Built in Brooklyn New York in the Great Jazz and Bop era which solidified " That Great Gretsch Sound "
This Piece has retained all its glory and is remarkably well preserved and in excellent condition!

Remember these drum sets were built for one year only  and given the era of production was very limited resulting in very few being made and even the finish type was discontinued from Gretsch
offerings a short time later.

I have an extensive Gretsch Collection and this is 1 of 2 in my stock with only about a dozen others in good condition  known to exist this is by far one of the Rarer Gretsch offerings and is easily one of the finest examples I know of.

This drum set is 100% factory components except for new Remo heads
Even the original bass Calfskin is in mint condition.



The TOTAL condition of this drum set is incredible.

Very very Low miles on this drum as it looks to have seen very little play time.
There are no scuffs or scratches on the finish.
I would not be selling this set if I had not recently acquired another which needs some work so if you have been looking for a Prime Gretsch Collectible here is your chance to get one!

I am the second owner of this fine drum and the original owner had held onto it since purchased during The Gretsch Diamond Jubilee era at the 75th anniversary of being in business making them great collectible musical instruments and an asset to you and your collection.
Remo Heads seat well
