Vintage 1963 Gretsch 6070. The Gretsch 6070 bass was a single pickup hollowbody bass. The double pickup version was the 6072. This classic instrument was also known as the Country Gentleman bass.

This bass is in great shape and plays and sounds a lot like an upright. ( which was the intention ) 34 inch scale. Overall this bass is in great shape as are the frets. Currently set up nice and low with flat wound strings. There are a few dings here and there to the body/ headstock but nothing major. Some of the binding has been repaired and some has gone brittle in parts and crumbled. None of this is that noticeable and all can be seen more clearer from the pictures on my website. The back of the body has a cutout which is filled with foam and covered by leather which also protects the finish from buckle rash. The leather cover is attached to the body with press studs

This high quality instrument was launched in 1962, and production ceased in 1972.

SPECS: 17 inch double cutaway, 2 inches thick. Single pickup. Adjustable 4 string space control bridge. 24 carat gold plated metal parts. Bound f-holes. Built in muffler. Available in amber, red, and shaded sunburst finishes. This bass is in sunburst.
