Gretsch 6122 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman, 1967

Gretsch 6122 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman, 1967

Here we have an almost all original Gretsch 6122 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman. Its serial number is 37714, and that’s a date coded serial – the first two or three digits are Month and Year, though there’s no digit for ‘decade’. This serial could indicate a 1959 model, but at that point, the 6122 was a single-cutaway model. The number appears again for March, 1967, which corresponds with the construction, components and features of this example. This guitar is ‘almost’ all original – when shipped from Gretsch, it would have had a Rocking Bar Bridge.

Volkert Classical Cutaway Crossover Guitar, 1994

Volkert Classical Cutaway Crossover Guitar, 1994

Here we have a custom order Volkert classical, cutaway and crossover guitar, signed and dated to 1994 at the Volkert shop in Lauf an der Pegnitz. This guitar was designed for the player’s needs, which included playing Gypsy Jazz and Flamenco styles. This interesting, well built guitar has a Florentine cutaway and, very unusually for a classical, a 14-fret neck!  Because of the player’s needs, full Golpeador or Tap Plates were installed to protect the top.

‼️Reduced‼️ Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe II Honeyburst, 2013

‼️Reduced‼️ Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe II Honeyburst, 2013

First appearing in 1983, the Gibson Les Paul Studio has been built in a range of variations though all aim to deliver a real Les Paul experience but at a lower price point. The price savings mostly come from two labour intensive areas. First, most Studios have thinner finishes and not all are gloss. This reduces the time spent in the finish room which can take weeks for a full gloss.
