Gretsch Tennessean 6119 Walnut, 1967

Gretsch Tennessean 6119 Walnut, 1967

Currently named the ‘Tennessee Rose’, the Gretsch Tennessean 6119 first appeared in 1958, and for 1961 gained the closed, thin ElectroTone body. Chet Atkins had been urging Gretsch to take steps to reduce feedback on their hollowbody designs, especially after Gibson introduced the center-block ES335 in 1958.

Gretsch G6122TG Country Gentleman Player’s Edition Walnut, 2016

Gretsch G6122TG Country Gentleman Player's Edition Walnut, 2016

The Gretsch G6122TG Country Gentleman Player’s Edition is the latest version of this classic updated with locking tuners, pinned bridge and string-through Bigsby. But there’s more to the updates – the neck joint was re-engineered to reduce the size of the neck block and comfortably increase upper fret access.   This change alone is a huge improvement in playability, making an already great design even better!

⚌Reduced‼ Godin 5th Avenue Edition Speciale PT Indigo Blue, 2009

The Godin 5th Avenue archtop model was introduced at the 2008 NAMM show, it was a surprise hit given that this type of guitar has been seen on fewer stages since the early 1960s. Since then, the 5th Avenue has been seen in a number of variations with different pickup configurations, with and without Bigsby True Vibrato tailpieces, with and without cutaways, and in a host of finishes. Seen here is the Godin 5th Avenue Edition Speciale PT sporting an Indigo Blue finish.
