This vintage Gretch black Dual Jet guitar was in very poor condition when it came into the shop for repairs and refinish work. The binding was in extremely poor condition and had to be replaced. Also, the electronics were in poor condition and had to be re-furbished. The finish was also very poor and had to be completely refinished including the neck. Electronics on this guitar are very hard to work on and to get in and out of the guitar. A exact plywood template of the guitar had to be made to mount the PU's and electronics so that new wire and parts could be tested before being put back inside the guitar because it is a real effort to get everything back inside.
