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.
