He shoots! He sings!

Hmmm, do I want to play music or hockey tonight? Well with the Gretsch TK-300 you can do both. This beauty is currently being auctioned off on Craigslist which is where I got the photo.

These guitars were made in the mid-to-late 1970s. They look so un-Gretsch that its hard to believe the company actually made these. You can tell the influence that the Japanese guitar manufacturers with their love for pointy shapes were having on the market. I think the Victoriaville hockey stick factory provided the neck and headstock. (Umm, I'm only kidding about that).
