❌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 Anniversary 6124 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1963

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Anniversary 6124 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst,  1963

Originally built between 1958 and 1972, the Gretsch Anniversary 6124 was the Sunburst version of the two-tone 6125 model, both based on the successful 6120 Chet Atkins model. In its first two years, the Anniversary 6124/6125 carried a single Filter ‘Tron humbucking pickup at the neck, but from 1961 a single coil Hi-Lo ‘Tron was used. The basic structure or bones of the Gretsch Anniversary 6124 is very similar to the 6120, with a fully hollow, 16 inch wide body using parallel tone bar bracing and no sound post.

❌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.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Committee G7628 Maple Walnut Solidbody Guitar, 1978

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Committee G7628 Maple Walnut Solidbody Guitar, 1978

The Gretsch Committee G7628 came into being during the era of Baldwin ownership – summer 1967 to early 1985 – and was built from 1977 to 1980. This is a solidly Baldwin era Gretsch Committee G7628, a solid-body, through-neck double cutaway design built of Maple and Black Walnut. With a bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard, it carries a pair of humbucking pickups under a ‘bat-wing’ type pickguard. The pickguard was either opaque or transparent. The pickups feed through a mini-toggle selector switch and individual volume and tone controls. A hardtail bridge strung through the body and enclosed tuners complete the hardware.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch G6199 Billy Bo Jupiter Thunderbird Red, 2006

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch G6199 Billy Bo Jupiter Thunderbird Red, 2006

Here’s a rare beast – a Gretsch G6199 Billy Bo Jupiter Thunderbird in Firebird Red, based on Bo Diddley’s custom built 1959 Gretsch Jupiter Thunderbird! This model, which is produced in small quantities, has an interesting history. By 1959, Bo Diddley was a major star, with an energetic stage show. Bo was so energetic that he found regular guitars, like his L5, restricted his motion. So, he built his own guitars with trapezoidal or rectangular shapes, and these have a strong visual association with Bo Diddley.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Country Club G6196TCG Cadillac Green, 2005

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Country Club G6196TCG Cadillac Green, 2005

The Gretsch Country Club, model G619x, appeared in 1954 as a rebrand of the ‘Electro II’, itself built from 1951 to 1953. There were three ‘619x’ versions and the ‘x’ indicated the colour. 6192 was sunburst, 6193 natural or Blonde and 6196 the Cadillac Green finish seen here. Intended to sit at the top of the Gretsch line, this model aimed to convert ‘classic’ archtop players so the top was carved Spruce, rather than laminated Maple, often used for feedback rejection.
