Snare drum and hardware shown are for display only. Sorry for the tease. Factory lefty configuration in 9×13, 16×16, and 14×20. You could always put the 13 on a snare stand if you ain’t correct-handed as my pops says. Shells are all 6 ply Jasper with the reverse roundover. Serial numbers are 03562, 03557, and 03548. Here are the marks against. There are heavy scratches/gouges on the inside of the kick drum. No structural damage and hey, no one’s going to be inside the kick drum eyeballing them while you’re playing it. Sorry, no photos of this as of now. Trust me, they are bad. Again not cracked or anything structural, but definitely takes this kit down to player’s grade. The double sided tape Gretsch used for the hoop inlays is starting to get a bit tired in a few areas. It’s not lifted off, yet, but it’s a bit lumpy in about 3 or 4 places. There is a spot of adhesive residue on the inside of the batter side kick hoop. One tiny area of chrome loss on the edge of a kick hoop. 1 micro scratch near the cymbal mount. One of the wrap seams is lifting a bit. 13 cast hoop has one thin and about 4 inch long section where the chrome isn’t perfect (shown in detail in a photo). True to form for plenty of Gretsch from the era, all shells are a bit oversized. The heads seat fine with some light effort, but a classic reason “Modern Vintage” and “Classic Fit” heads were created. Shells are perfectly in round just oversized by modern standards.
