From George Harrison to Bo, from The Reverend Horton Heat to Brian Setzer, and most famously Mr Guitar himself - Chet Atkins, the Gretsch sound has defined rock and roll, country, and rockabilly.
The Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins Hollow Body is the one that started it all. When Gretsch approached Chet--already on his way to "legendary" status--in 1954 about designing his own model, the 6120 was the result, and it quickly became one of the company's most popular models. The 6120 was present at the birth of Rock 'n' Roll, and remains a favorite to this day among players of all ages and musical genres.
The short-lived, limited Edition 6120-SLTV offered a solid maple front and back rather than the laminated maple found on most 6120s.
This is a great guitar with high end features and classic Gretsch appointments. The 6120-SLTV features 2 TV Jones pickups. The TV Classic captures the vintage twang and growl of a late 1950's, and early 1960's vintage Filter'Tron™. The all-around versatility of a TV Classic makes this a great choice for rock, rockabilly, blues, country and more!
The polished aluminum B6C Bigsby and Space Control Bridge wrap up the package very nicely offering great playability and a classic look. The 6120-SLTV is a great choice for fingerstyle guitar but is well suited for rock and roll and rockabilly.
This 2004 Gretsch 6120-SLTV is gorgeously appointed with a single-cutaway bound hollow body with solid Maple top, three-piece rock maple neck, bound ebony fingerboard with Neo Classic thumbnail inlays, Grover Sta-Tite tuners, Space Control bridge, Bigsby B6C vibrato tailpiece and lacquer finish.
This instrument is in excellent + condition with only a few barely visible surface scratches which we have attempted to capture in the detailed photos below. It has very minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
