1967:

The short-lived Country Gentleman SuperTron experiment ended in '67, when a FilterTron came back in neck position, like God and Chet Atkins intended. Double mutes gave way a single mute and a rosewood fretboard replaced ebony in cost-cutting moves, and the pickguard now read "Gretsch Country Gentleman."
