Gruhn Guitars Gretsch Penguin

1958 Gretsch Penguin

Gretsch was the first guitar company to offer an array of colors as standard finishes, and one of the most striking -- and one of the rarest -- was the white finish and gold trim found on the Penguin, the solidbody companion to Gretsch's famous White Falcon hollowbody electric.

This 1958 Penguin (inv. #EG2926) has the early vertical peghead logo, along with thumbprint fingerboard inlay, "Cadillac" tailpiece and patent-applied-for Filtertron pickups. The tuners are replicas of vintage Grover Imperials.

It is in excellent condition with original hard case (SOLD).

This instrument is SOLD
