The story behind the restoration of a 1965 Kingston (MIJ by Teasco) semi hollow body guitar
with a 55 year history. The guitar's condition following heavy use in the high school rock band' of two
brothers during the Sixties was marginal. Scratched, dented and replaced by other guitars,it was stored
in assorted closets and garages ... without a case ... for the next 50 years. Used and abused ... it warranted
some attention ... with a nice surprise at the end!
Streamlined for the "Streamliner" ... 20 second "Unboxing / Sound Demo" of this Gretsch 2420.
The parts you'll hear in the soundtrack of this video: Rhythm (L), Lead (C), Twang (R).
All three parts were recorded with this guitar using Garage Band with bass and drums added.
