Used Gretsch G6120-1959 Nashville Chet Atkins 2006
What makes this guitar special: A great player in bold orange package, this Chet Atkins hollow body offers that great Gretsch sound at an affordable, player’s price. Nicely adorned with gold hardware and a set of Gretsch FilterTron pickups, the hollow body strummer offers a variety of tone combinations, suitable for anything from jazz to rock n roll. This piece is not without its issues...it shows some visible wear throughout and appears to have had a bit of a rough life and has clearly sustained some water damage, but still plays nicely and sounds great despite its issues. It comes with a professional setup from one of our in-house luthiers, so you know it’ll arrive ready to play.
Cosmetic condition: Good condition overall, with some players wear and cosmetic issues. There is a notable amount of finish cracking, chipping, and wear on the back of the neck near the headstock and neck joint, none of which appear to penetrate the wood. There is also some surface level finish wear and surface layer chipping on the headstock around the tuners and on top of the headstock. There appear to be hairline fractures extending from the tuners, but the headstock is structurally sound. The back of the neck has a small ridge between the two pieces extending down the centerline, but it isn't too bad. There are various surface and playwear scratches throughout the instrument as well, and the bridge appears to have shifted after being glued at some point in the past, so some residue from that gluing is visible.
Body: Double bound maple hollow body with dual bound jumbo f-holes in orange finish. Replacement adjusto-matic bridge with rosewood base and Bigsby tremolo tailpiece. Gold hardware and gold Chet Atkins signature pickguard.
