❌ SOLD ❌ Gretsch G6120-1959LTV Archtop Electric, Orange 2000

❌ SOLD ❌ Gretsch G6120-1959LTV Archtop Electric, Orange 2000

The Gretsch G6120-1959LTV isn’t currently in production, but it represents the specs of the famous 1959 Gretsch Chet Atkins models, with lacquer finish, zero fret, Trestle bracing and TV Jones Classic pickups. Technically, this guitar isn’t a Chet Atkins model, as at time of construction Gretsch had not re-obtained the rights to the Atkins name. Still – the rest is the same. Based on a 16 inch wide, single cutaway body with sides 2.75 inches high.   It was originally built with a bracing system combining a pair of tone bars running the length of the body plus a sound post under the bridge, but in 1959 Gretsch added a ‘Trestle’ bracing system for Chet Atkins,  who was facing the common problem of hollow-body guitars feeding back at ever-increasing stage volumes.

The Gretsch Chet Atkins Tennesee Rose, G6119, is a direct descendant of the Gretsch Tennessean produced from 1958 to 1980, renamed for legal reasons. The Tennessean trademark is still owned by Gibson, and wasn’t included when the Chet Atkins and Country Gentleman names were bought back by Gretsch. Otherwise, the Tennessee Rose and Tennessean are the same design.
