First appearing in the mid-1950s with the endorsement of Chet Atkins the Gretsch 6120 model has grown in stature to become the flagship of the company's line. In 1961, the year that this model hails from, the body was narrowed from almost 3 inches to about 2. This was to be the last year of the single cut-away Gretsch 6120. This was also the last year that the 6120 had actual F-Holes. In '62 they started painting them on, making this guitar highly collectable and sought after.

Neck: Maple neck with a Rosewood fretboard with half moon fret markers.
Pickups/Hardware: Two original Filter-Tron pickups, Bigsby by Gretsch tremelo bridge.
Cosmetic Condition: Very clean, with a few finish dings, and some light neck wear. A few repairs on the front.
Setup/Playability: It plays and sounds great, the tone unique to early F-Hole Gretsch guitars, Tremelo works great!

Some solder joints have been touched up. Some pickup mounting holes near the bridge pickup have been filled.
