Here is your once in a lifetime chance

This set is 100% complete and all original except for the resonant tom heads which are new Remo's
Both bass heads are original  and feature the factory issue logo head

The set features A few rare  features aside form the sizes and finish
This era Gretsch drums usually have the Silver Interior finish but a few endorsee's who were carried over from the 50's era
sometimes requested their new drums be unfinished inside as well thus giving a clear view of The Jasper Maple interiors.
Therefore this set was probably an endorsement set or a custom order from someone special
 

The set is in great condition for a 40 year old set with very clean chrome and a rather well preserved finish
There are some small spots of wear and aging splits but not there is none of the typical crazing or flaking these finishes are often suspect to.
There is only a light degree of finish splitting / checking and the worst wear is some tom rub on the rear of the 12" tom.
