    Monkees 1967 "Rock & Roll Model" Gretsch Hollowbody Electric Guitar In 1966, the year that the Monkees TV show debuted on NBC, they also had the privilege of having their own line of Gretsch guitars. Built with high-end hardware and electronics, the Monkees guitar (model number 6123) was produced from 1966 to 1969, and featured a Monkees logo on the pickguard and truss rod cover, as well as a plaque on the front of the headstock. Now these collectible guitars are fairly rare, and it is not very often that one hits the auction market. This example is nearly complete, missing only the original pickguard and truss rod cover, two rarities that are often stripped from these models. The cherry red finish still sparkles, and the hardware is all very clean for its age. Neo-classic fret markers adorn both the top and bottom of each fret, a rarity among Gretsches. The Bigsby B-6 tremolo tailpiece also adds an especially "jangly" look to this guitar.

    The high end features and exquisite rosewood fingerboard make this beautiful display piece very functional as well, and the dual Supertron pickups are louder than a hoard of screaming Monkees fans. Some light restoration on the cream binding would brighten this beautiful guitar up a little, but as it stands, it is in Excellent condition for its age and rarity. A new hardshell case is included.
