Gretsch 6186 Clipper Electric Guitar, Sunburst, Circa 1964 with Original Case

Gretsch 6186 Clipper Electric Guitar, Sunburst, Circa 1964 with Original Case (Pre-Owned)

Product code: bst2usgrclip

This Gretsch 6186, otherwise known as 'The Clipper', is in rather impressive condition! We estimate this one to about 1964, it still has the original Hi'LoTron pickup and even comes in the original case! Showing surprisingly little wear for a guitar of this age! Great fun to play with heaps of charm and a snappy, honky tone.
