Product Description

A unique remake of a famous Gretsch, this is a very well done copy of a Gretsch Bo Diddley Jupiter that was once owned by John Entwistle of The Who. Auctioned by Sotheby's in 2003, this guitar has a red finish, two Gretsch Filter'Tron pickups with definite genuine Gretsch parts - however it was known that many non-Gretsch built copies of the Jupiter exist. It doesn't stop this from being a super cool guitar! It's in great shape, there are some small dings around the body and finish checking as well. It includes a hardshell case whose foam interior has been altered to fit the body shape. The Southeby's tags are still on the case for posterity.
