Just in at Diablo Guitars is this beautiful 1979 Gretsch Country Gentleman 7670 in Walnut…

This amazing Gretsch Chet Atkins Country Gentleman 7670 in walnut stain finish was made in 1979. This guitar features a double bound semi-hollow laminated maple body, 2-piece maple neck, and a bound ebony fretboard. The guitar comes equipped with dual Gretsch blacktop Filtertron pickups with a master volume, isolated pickup volumes, a 3-way pickups selector, and a 3-way mud switch. This guitar has plenty of tone options and everything still sounds crystal clear and clean. It sounds amazing with any overdriven or distorted tones as well. Just a joy to play!

The original gold hardware is still in great condition, there is some minor pittong visible on the Grover tuning machines, the original B12 Bigsby vibrato tailpiece is VERY clean with some finish wear on the vibrola arm itself. The bridge shows signs of palm wear, most of the gold finish is goine but again, functionally it is in fantastic shape. The Gretsch Pointer Arrow knobs are immacualte. This guitar plays phenomenally well especially for its age! The original frets feel great and still have life left but some heavy fret wear is visble. The ebony board also shows some signs of wear but is still in good shape…again the guitar plays fantastically.

There are no serious dings, scratches or dents, but there are a few areas where the finish has grown a bit couldy from age. It’s very difficult to capture in photos. There are some small chips and specs here and there, but the guitar really is clean!! No buckle rash on the back… it’s a KILLER guitar!
