The current owner encouraged me to post here . He only knows what the previous owner had told him . I think the price is respectfully way over the top .

Thanks for the link MO !

I agree that the price is a bit much. In the last picture, to me, the tom mount looks like it may have caused some cracks and separation to the inner shell. Also, as he mentioned, the tom mount itself has a crack so I would shy away. If you're looking for a Stop Sign Badge Gretsch BD I would recommending looking a bit more, unless of course you're looking for a 24" Bonham type BD. Just my humble opinion.
