The Gretsch G6120 is a Signature model after Eddie Cochran, an American Rockabilly singer and guitarist from the 1950s. This signature is an ode to the classic G6120 that he played a lot on.
Eddie Cochran was a 1950s American Rock and Roll and Blues guitarist and singer. He was known for his songs “Summertime blues”, “C’mon everybody” and “Twenty-Flight Rock”. Many of his songs were about the free teenage life. In 1960 he died at the age of only 21, very young. Eddie Cochran was a great source of inspiration to Paul McCartney.
The guitar speaks blues in the sound and finish. A large open body with a DynaSonic single coil in the bridge and a Lindy Fralin ‘Dogear’ P90 in the neck for the ultimate, solid blues sound. The guitar has an iconic ‘western’ finish with a ‘western’ motif inlay in the rosewood fingerboard and a Western Satin finish to give her that 50’s American look. Includes case.
