This photo was originally published in Reader’s Gallery from the February 2014 issue of Vintage Guitar magazine. Though it’s been several years since he contributed, Frank Manno is a “veteran” of the Gallery. “Lately, I have been blown away by the guitars Steven Stern has been making at the Gretsch Custom Shop,” he said. “It started with one sparkle Penguin and before I knew it, I had this collection!” Standing from left, the guitars are a Falcon in Sage Green, a Penguin ’55 in Red Sparkle, White Penguin Relic, Duo Jet ’55 in Shell Pink, Penguin ’59 in Grape Sparkle, and a Falcon ’55 Relic. Relaxing in front is a 125th Anniversary 6120-DSWR.

Tips for a good online buying experience
Practice good communications. Never assume anything. Ask for a detailed, in-hand description of all parts, including electronics, finish, fretwear, hardware, case, etc.
Find out what’s original and what’s not.
Spell out the deal, including amount, method of payment, shipping method, approval period, etc.
Keep all correspondence and receipts.
Condition definitions vary greatly; we suggest the use of the following:
Mint Condition: Condition the instrument was in when it left the factory. Very rare in older instruments.
Excellent Condition: Very clean, no wear, may be some minor finish and/or playing wear. All original parts and finish. The values in The Official Vintage Guitar Price Guide are for instruments in Excellent Condition.
Very Good Condition: This is a very wide range. Instrument is solid playing condition, but may have significant wear, non-original parts, or parts missing.
Good Condition: Still playable, but may have modifications and/or extensive playing wear.
Poor Condition: May have major problems or modified big time.
