    Just saw a band and the guitar palyer had an old Gretsch with three single coils (semi-hollow) in red. What an interesting thing! Any idea what model that could have been?

    That would be the X-350, is my guess:

    Not sure on this, but I'm guessing this push button arrangement helped influence Gibson to convert the ES-5 to the switchmaster.

    Thanks - the one that I meant was really a "Gretsch" labeled with chrome pickup covers (either gold or chrome, not sure anymore). Reminded me vaguely of the Fender semi-hollow style guitars... (Coronado etc.)

    Except that that is a Guild, not a Gretsch.

    Damn. I saw that it started with a "G" and just got Guild on the brain. My apologies.
