A new project, 1946-1948 Gretsch New Yorker

A new project, 1946-1948 Gretsch New Yorker

A new project, Tex a 1946-1948 Gretsch New Yorker. The guitar had come unglued and separated 1/4 inch, neck needs to be reset, frets felt like a badly rutted road, nut deformed, tuning buttons had to be replaced. Honestly this guitar probably shouldn’t have been repaired but I have done most of the work myself and I will have help in in shimming and resetting the neck. Tex will be playable but I don’t imagine this guitar will be one you’d cherish. Tex will be brought back to life. More pictures to follow.

Tex has been re-fretted. Take a look at the top two frets and imagine how the numbers of songs that been played. I tuning buttons fell off and new buttons were melted on. I imagine one of the previous owners stripped the neck and sides to improve the guitars tone.

Who was Tex?

If anyone knew Tex, please let me know.
