Who would guess that a hollowbody guitar could be this versatile? The list of guitar greats who have created signature tones using the Gretsch model 6120 is as staggering as it is varied: Think of Chet Atkins’ articulate finger work, Duane Eddy’s deep twang, Neil Young’s countrified clean or fuzzed-out tones with Buffalo Springfield, Pete Townshend’s crunchy power chords on Who’s Next, and the definitive rockabilly sounds created by the likes of Eddie Cochran and Brian Setzer. This big, orange tone machine is one of the very early Gretsch reissues—which means that, like a fine wine, it now has twenty years of aging under its belt. And in our experience, the vibe that comes from age and being played can’t be duplicated in any other way. This instrument’s beautiful block fretboard inlays, gold-plated V-cut Bigsby, and tiger maple headstock overlay provide just the right touch of hillbilly swank to compliment the eye-catching orange finish. Other features include a pinned bridge base with fully-adjustable Gretsch roller-saddle bridge, original factory Filtertrons, and horseshoe headstock inlay. This instrument has been played, but has never been abused. It’s as solid as a rock, with only some small dings and scratches to provide evidence of two decade spent cranking out big tone in clubs and studios. There is some fret wear, mostly in the cowboy chord positions but nothing that affects playability. One knob and a pot or two have been replaced. The tuners have been upgraded to Setzer-approved Sperzel locking machine heads, and the strap buttons have been swapped out in favor of Schaller strap locks. The truss rod cover has been cracked and glued back together. Comes in original Gretsch hardshell case. SOLD!
