Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins Orange 1957 Vintage

$ 8900.00

Beautiful non-reissue 1957 Gretsch 6120 with DeArmond Dynasonic single coil pickups. Sounds fantastic. Neck joint is very solid and the action is very nice. Binding is in excellent condition, with just a little cracking on the binding that covers the heel. The original Bigsby compensated aluminum bridge is included, but the guitar currently has a Tune-o-Matic style floating bridge (not drilled). Everything else on the instrument is original, but the neck pickup needed to be rewound. I had this work done by TV Jones while he was still doing repairs. Finish is in very good condition, with the exception of a “belt buckle rash” spot on the back of the guitar (see pics), and a tiny bit of wear high on the neck (see pics – this looks rough in the shot, but is pretty smooth). There is some wear on the fretboard around the 2nd fret that doesn’t affect playability. Comes with a modern Gretsch case. This is a great sounding, great playing and great looking guitar. Item is vintage, so is sold as-is with no returns. Please ask all questions before purchase – I’ll be happy to answer!
