1957 Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins

This is a vintage 1957 Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins hollowbody electric guitar. This particular example, serial number 23242, is in extremely fine 100% all original condition and includes the original white leatherette case with Western tooled leather appointments. The Deep Western Orange finish is absolutely impeccable, unfaded, and incredibly vibrant. This example does not display weather-checking nor other usual aged finish artifacts, and it presents almost as well as a new instrument. The neck is straight, the neck joint and neck angle are perfect, and the guitar plays better than any other 6120 I’ve owned. The DeArmond pickups sound exuberant with potent personality and that famous character. Easily the best all around example with regard to condition and functionality imaginable.
