Default 1947 Gretsch Broadkaster Drum Kit w/ Matching Gladstone Snare

Hi Guys,
Got an absolutely beautiful vintage 1947 Gretsch Broadkaster drum kit with matching Gladstone snare drum. 22" bass, 13" tom, 16" floor and 6" snare drum, 3-ply Brooklyn shells, broadkaster lugs, single flange hoops, etc.. Midnight blue pearl finish. A rare find. Please see pictures to evaluate the excellent condition it is in. Drums are all original, except for a couple of heads. Would look great with the old style Gretsch logo on the front head. Cymbals and stands not included. Asking $4,000, Please pay $100 shipping.

It's absurd how cool that kit is. Good luck with the sale.
