1957 Gretsch Electromatic Artist

 

A rare Gretsch Electromatic Artist amp. The serial number dates this to 1957. Puts out about 10 - 12 watts. It came with the original speaker and had already been fixed up by an amp tech. Very little clean headroom, even with single coil pickups. The wraparound grill and the white specks on the tolex make this a really unique looking amp. The grill is apparently made of some sort of heavy metal wire.
