2004 Gretsch 6120 DSW – £1599

SOLD  Few electric guitars are as recognisable as a Gretsch, and in a classic orange finish the Nashville 6120 has to be the most identifiable of them all. It first appeared in the mid-1950s with the endorsement of Chet Atkins, and was quickly adopted by rockabilly artists Eddie Cochran and Duane Eddy, then later by Eric Clapton, Pete Townsend, Brian Setzer, and many others. The guitar’s build quality is impressive, featuring 5 ply Maple body construction (not 3 ply on current models), a three piece rock Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard, western inlays, and open-bound oversized F holes. The hardwear features solid brass, gold plated control knobs, and Gretsch chrome Bigsby flat handle vibrato tailpiece. The pickups have been upgraded to Rob Williams hand scatter wound which deliver a real growl and midrange honk that takes you from rockabilly to hard rock and everything in-between. The pickguard has also been changed to a black Gretsch model, which contrasts really well with the vibrant orange – although the original gold Nashville pickguard is included in the case. The guitar is in excellent condition, with a comfortable feeling neck and easy playing action., and comes in it’s original Gretsch embossed hard case with certificate and original paperwork.
