Sold! Gretsch 6120 Double Cutaway Thinline Electric, Orange 1962

Sold!  Gretsch 6120 Double Cutaway Thinline Electric, Orange 1962

In 1962, the Gretsch 6120 Double Cutaway model appeared, displacing the classic but aging single-cutaway deep body 6120 and bearing the new, sealed Electrotone body. This closed body first appeared on the 1961 Tennessean.The new double cutaway version came about through a number of influences. In particular, Gibson hand introduced their very successful ES-335 models, and Chet Atkins felt the Electrotone body worked better at stage volumes.

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson ES-335 ‘Rich Robinson’ 471 of 500 Cherry, 2014

❌ SOLD ❌  Gibson ES-335 'Rich Robinson' 471 of 500 Cherry, 2014

Built at the Gibson Memphis plant, the Gibson ES-335 Rich Robinson is very much like a ‘new’ 1963 model. The ‘Custom Made’ plaque on the body was frequently used to cover stop-tailpiece collars when a Bigsby was installed, either at the factory or after purchase. The cherry finish very common in that era, and the metal parts have gone through a ‘VOS’ aging process to simulate natural oxidization.
