Default Please ID Joe Bonamassa's archtop in "Drive"

Could someone help me identify this sweet looking archtop that Joe Bonamassa is playing in the official "Drive" video? Looks like a Gretsch of some sort....

Used on Drive, this 1958 Gretsch Country Club was strung with flatwounds: “It’s the same thing with Jaguars and Jazzmasters. As soon as you use flatwound strings, the whole guitar, the scale, everything makes sense.”

Thanks a lot, Bob! I gave up after a few searches and knew someone here would know the answer. That's one beautiful archtop! I'd love to be a fly on the wall at Nerdville!!
