Gretsch 6120 
Amber Red
Pre-Owned 1960 - Very Good Condition

Coming from the care of a Gretsch Collector and enthusiast, this beautiful 6120 from 1960 will get all the fabulous sounds of the era and then some! This is an early 1960 example with the rare Real Bound F'Holes. Some repair work has been done on the binding along the fretboard and enhances the beauty of this fine example.

This 1960 Chet Atkins Hollowbody has the typical characteristics of 6120 models produced for that year. These include a bright orange “Amber Red" stained laminated maple top, back, and sides; a body depth of 2 1/2" (it was 2 3/4" until that year); an ebony fretboard with neoclassic inlays (which replaced hump-block inlays in1958); Filter'Tron humbucking pickups (which also replaced DeArmonds in1958); a zero fret, which negated the need for a brass nut starting in 1959; a V-style Gretsch by Bigsby tailpiece that replaced the regular black enamel-faced Bigsby; and a bar bridge, which debuted on the model in 1957. This guitar is among the earliest 6120s to have "patent applied for" on each of the pickups.
