Gretsch 1967 Cats-Eye Electric in Black.  This rare guitar appears to have relatively mundane features:  Hi-Lo’Tron pickups, true hollowbody, Van Ghent open-back tuners, plain back, bar bridge and Bigsby.  What makes this model 6117 distinctive are the very cool “cats-eye” slash soundholes -- found only on the high-end acoustic Synchromatic models of the 1940s -- replacing the traditional F-holes in the body.  It also has a Gibson-style control layout, with a pickup selector switch and V/T controls for each pickup (and no standby switch).  Even for Gretsch, this model is an oddity. Gray OHSC.
