125th Ann Gretsch G6120 Chet Atkins w/TV Jones Classic Pickups | 2008

125th Anniversary Gretsch 6120 (made after Fender revitalized the line). A glorious transparent orange stain guitar standing in front of Malta's famous Triton sea warriors fountain. The marketing hype for the G6120 states unashamedly, according to Gretsch, "This is the one!" Truly. 


Co-designed with the guitarist’s guitarist, Chet Atkins, the venerable 6120 is one of the most widely heard Gretsch instruments. The G6120LH Hollow Body with Bigsby® stays true to the original design and astounding classic aesthetics. A veritable tonal multi-tool, this hollow body has an easy-playing, comfortable feel and rings out proudly with That Great Gretsch Sound!™ The guitar received an upgrade with a pair of TV Jones® pickups tgat create a multi-dimensional tone with plenty of articulate detail. Traditional Gretsch controls allow you to blend and shape the pickups’ sounds, creating countless tonal variations. The standard “U”-shaped maple neck bears a 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets for a memorable playing experience that works with any fret-hand style. A pinned aluminum compensated bridge works with the Bigsby vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the vintage-style polished aluminum nut delivers signature snappy twang.


This is the archetypal Gretsch 6120 variant with specs closely matching the coveted models dating from 1959 and 1960. 


The body is in excellent shape, with hardly a mark to be found! The neck, body and headstock are smooth and glossy. This Gretsch is looking as great as it sounds! 


Designed for pure tone and slick, comfortable playing feel, this guitar features the classic appointments Gretsch fans desire—gold G-arrow control knobs, aged white binding with black purfling, durable gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, aged pearloid block inlays with classic Western motif, gold vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo and gold Grover® Sta-Tite™ tuning machines. A resurrected blast from the past with elegantly refined style and sound, the G6120LH Chet Atkins® Hollow Body with Bigsby® is sure to satisfy any devotee of Gretsch’s golden era.
