Up for sale is this vintage 1977 Gretsch 7680 Super Axe electric guitar. A very cool product of the Baldwin-era of Gretsch, this model features a built in effects circuit which includes a phaser (although the phaser has an issue as described) and a compressor. Tone for days!

This instrument is in nice cosmetic condition for its age, although it does show some normal wear from use. There are a few small dings and some scratches and scuffs, but nothing major at all. The original orange finish is still very bright and unfazed. The instrument is all original with the exception of one tuner screw. The bridge pickup ring is cracked, top center, but still functions perfectly as it should.

This guitar has just been gone over and set up by our tech, who cleaned it up, sprayed out the electronics, and gave it a set up. The instrument has recently had the frets leveled and plays nicely all the way up the neck with comfortable action. The only issue is that the high-E and B string choke out on bends on the 19th fret and we like to be transparent about those kind of things. The guitar has a slight kick up at the end of the neck where it joins the body, as most of these do which is a product of their construction and how the truss rods work.

The phaser works, but the rate knob doesn't change the oscillation effect at all, although the tone changes with the blend knob. The compressor works as it should. This may be a simple fix or it may be a troublesome unit. We are not familiar enough with these to dive in and we know better than to mess with it, so the phaser is sold "AS IS".

The original hardshell case is included and is in nice condition. All of the hinges and latches work as they should, but the case does show some cosmetic wear from many years of protecting the instrument.
