Your eye have landed on a wonderful Gretsch G6120T-55 Vintage Select Chet Atkins.  Your heart is beating fast.  Your hands start to twitch, want to get at this guitar.  Don’t worry, that’s normal, and can be resolved by one thing – making this one yours.

This guitar is in excellent condition and comes with its original hardshell case.  The previous owner only had it for a few months – it was bought new here at Truetone and is now back after a ride on the “be back bus”.   He’s a collector that has been one of our favorite regulars for years.  He got this one earlier this year, played it once or twice and then kept in it’s case in his studio.  The guitar has just been setup to play perfectly by the techs in our shop, and is good to go!

The venerable 6120 is one of the most widely heard Gretsch instruments, and was originally co-designed with legendary guitarist Chet Atkins. It’s been a mainstay in the Gretsch lineup for decades and been utilized by countless players since.  The G6120T-55 Vintage Select Edition ’55 Chet Atkins 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!

A pair of TV Jones T-Armond single-coil pickups creates multi-dimensional tone with plenty of articulate detail. Traditional Gretsch controls allow you to blend and shape the pickups’ sounds, creating countless tonal variations. Add the new Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil capacitors and you get incredibly smooth taper and silky vintage high end. 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 B6GBVF vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the vintage-style polished aluminum nut delivers signature snappy twang.

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 G6120T-55 Vintage Select Edition ’55 Chet Atkins Hollow Body with Bigsby is sure to satisfy any devotee of Gretsch’s golden era.
