❌SOLD❌Gretsch 6125 Single Anniversary Smoke Green, 1959

❌SOLD❌Gretsch 6125 Single Anniversary Smoke Green, 1959

The Gretsch 6125 Single Anniversary appeared in 1958 as an evolution of the Streamliner, itself based on the popular Chet Atkins 6120 model and in 1959 featured Trestle Bracing and the new patent applied for Filter ‘Tron hum cancelling pickup designed by Ray Butts. Here we’re looking at an all original Gretsch 6125 Single Anniversary in Smoke Green Two Tone. It’s in very nice condition, a very good neck angle and minimal wear to the finish and frets. There is a bit of binding damage, typical to Gretsch models of the era (due to long-term interaction between the binding and the binding glue), only on the short piece of binding next to the heel on the cutaway.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch 6131 Jet Firebird, 1962

Here’s a rarity – a Gretsch 6131 Jet Firebird in great condition and dating to 1962, its second year as a double cutaway.   This model is perhaps most visually associated with the late Malcolm Young of AC/DC.   The Gretsch G6131 Jet appeared in 1955, following the 1953 release of the Duo-Jet, perhaps as the Gretsch response to the Gibson Les Paul. At that point it featured a single cutaway body with an arched top – but instead of being solid, the body was chambered to reduce weight and produce a more ‘acoustic’ tone, towards Gretsch’s other arched-top models. The pattern of an archtop-style floating bridge rather than a fixed bridge like the Les Paul was still used.

❌SOLD❌Gretsch G5125 Electromatic Archtop Electric Black, 2005

The Gretsch G5125 Electromatic was part of a line of similar models differentiated by colour; the 5125 in black, the 5129 with a red top, the 5127 in powder blue. Based on the Gretsch Anniversary models, all shared the same hardware – a licensed Bigsby tailpiece with aluminum bridge, Kluson style tuners, and deArmond 2000 pickups that simulated the classic single coil DynaSonics.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch G6120DSW TV Jones T-Armonds, Orange 2014

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch G6120DSW TV Jones T-Armonds, Orange 2014

The Gretsch G6120DSW TV replicates the 1955 and 1956 6120 models, with a lot of typical Gretsch Western motif trim and Western Orange Stain lacquer finish. The very first Gretsch 6120 models were derived from a special order 1954 Streamliner Special, and presented to Chet Atkins as a potential signature model. This guitar featured a 16 inch single cutaway Maple laminate hollow body, and a second DeArmond DynaSonic bridge pickup as the Streamliner had only one pickup

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch 6122 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman, 1967

❌SOLD❌ 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.
