Gretsch Tennessee Rose G6119FT Thin Body Archtop Walnut, 2006

Gretsch Tennessee Rose G6119FT Thin Body Archtop Walnut, 2006

Based on the 1962 Chet Atkins Tennessean, the Gretsch Tennessee Rose G6119 was introduced in 1995, but wasn’t a ‘Chet Atkins’ model until 2007 when Gretsch re-acquired rights to the Atkins name. Consequently, the pickguard on this example has only the words ‘Tennessee Rose’ and the Gretsch logo. The 6119 Tennessean appeared in 1958 as a full size, single pickup archtop. In 1962, it was drastically revised with a new, thin body using the sealed ‘ElectroTone’ concept for feedback resistance. This design has faux F-holes, either painted or decals. It bore a pair of either Filter ‘Tron or HiLo ‘Tron pickups and the model was discontinued in 1980. Gretsch, then owned by Baldwin, folded in 1983 with Baldwin’s bankruptcy.

Here, we have a Gretsch Tennessee Rose G6119T model with a pair of Filter ‘Trons, built at the Japan Terada plant in Nagoya during 2006. It’s in great condition, with light wear and one small ding in the headstock. The pickup covers and rocking bar bridge are showing some light oxidization, which make the guitar look vintage.
