A taste of the 40s! Inspired by the early Synchromatics, the Gretsch G100CE Synchromatic Cutaway will take you back to those smoky jazz bars filled with musicians and a crooning Ella Fitzgerald. In mint condition, this stunning guitar has flatwound strings, a spruce top, maple sides and back and rosewood fingerboard, giving you a sound that is light, but full of texture and suave. This natural finished, electro acoustic guitar is perfect for recreating that retro feel at a great price and even comes with a luxury Gretsch Strap.

Acoustically, you can expect a snappy tone with a warm woody sound. The acoustic arch top design and floating neck mounted single coil pickup make up a beautifully composed and constructed guitar. The G100CE lends itself well to being recorded or amplified due to its fast attack, clear tone and electromagnetic pickup. You won’t find a better sounding guitar at this price range.

Here’s what Gretsch say about the Gretsch G100CE Synchromatic Cutaway Guitar
