This kit popped up on local Craigslist. I am not too familiar with vintage Gretsch.

Is this a USA custom SSB?

Sizes 20,12,16

It does mention it is missing some parts and has some extra holes but it seems to be priced fairly at 950.

Is that a good deal on these?

I really am more partial to 20,12,14 being the sizes of my next kit. So the 16 floor kind of deters me.

Is the Stop Sign Badge Arkansas era Gretsch?

Don't let it. The 16 is a fast quick killer; as cool as the 14 and a little more thunder; the 8/12 is "the" Great Gretsch ( "signature" ) sound drum;
Stop Sign Arkansas Yes. That's Ok.
Don't let that 16 deter ya. You got the 20/12
I own em both)

I’m not really looking for another kit at the moment as I wanted to save up the next couples years and get a USA custom 20/12/14.

These just appeared and was curious if it was good enough deal to make an exception. Clean them up, play them maybe flip them when the time comes to get a new US custom

I'd wanna see the Spurs and wheres the rail.
You won't necessarily need to spend for another G set.

at least the bd isn't cut for a Post.
That's a future $1100 set

If I could talk this guy down what would be a jump on it price considering they need a little work?

Put two blonde no inlay hoops on that and you'll need sunglasses (I had a Gold Satin flame
