Today, we are introducing a Gretsch Malcolm Young Guitar we customized for one of our customer before. This guitar sells crazily in our shop. And one of our customers Craige made us a great review video about this guitar, then our friend Verne changed the color of this guitar from natural to red, with our Wilkinson similar pickups and parts installed. He sent the pic of original Gretsch Malcolm Young to us, and asked us to build it according to this pic and his requirements: add his name on the headstock and use his signature on the truss rod cover, of course we really love to do that for him. Here is the pic he sent us for reference to make his unique guitar.
