⚌Reduced‼ Gretsch G6129 Silver Sparkle Jet, 1989

Always tasteful and visually restrained, the Gretsch G6129 Silver Sparkle Jet first appeared in 1954 as an answer to the Les Paul model. While there are some immediately apparent visual similarities – the single cutaway body of Mahogany with a Maple cap – underneath there were significant differences. From 1954, the original Gretsch Jet models started with a Maple body, routed to provide a number of chambers for resonance and weight relief.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Nashville 6120DSW Archtop Electric Western Orange, 2003

❌SOLD❌  Gretsch Nashville 6120DSW Archtop Electric Western Orange, 2003

Based on early 1950’s models, the Gretsch Nashville 6120DSW model is probably the iconic Gretsch with its G brand in the top and ‘Western’ motif inlays. A fully hollow guitar with tone bars and a soundpost for support, the DSW designation indicates that Dyna Sonic pickups are installed, and the Western decorations are used.

❌SOLD❌ Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith ‘Lawsuit Era’ Archtop Electric Natural, 1975

❌SOLD❌  Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith 'Lawsuit Era' Archtop Electric Natural, 1975

Here we have an Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith style, full body cutaway archtop, built in Japan likely during 1975. The model was built until 1977. Typical of the early 1975 period, it has no serial number – these started appearing on the back of the headstock late 1975. It is largely original, though it has a slight modification – the output jack was a mini-plug mounted on the pickguard, and this was removed and a standard 1/4 inch jack installed to the lower treble side.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch G6119-1959 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose, Flagstaff Sunset Red, 2007

❌SOLD❌  Gretsch G6119-1959 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose, Flagstaff Sunset Red, 2007

Here is a very cool and rather rare Gretsch G6119-1959 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose, much like a single-pickup Anniversary model with Trestle bracing and zero fret – and in Flagstaff Sunset Red! This is a reproduction of a guitar known to have been built to a total of about one thousand instruments with open F-Holes. At this time, Chet Atkins was working with Gretsch to reduce feedback as volumes continued to rise, and two main approaches were taken.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch G6128 Duo Jet With Bigsby Black, 2016

Here’s a very clean, all original 2016 Gretsch G6128 Duo Jet in Black, with vintage-style Bigsby B3 V-cut tailpiece and Space Control bridge. This model uses the 1959 style electronics layout with two Filter ‘Trons – apparently not by TV Jones as there is no T designation – pickup selector, tone selector, plus individual and master Volume controls.

❌SOLD❌  Gretsch G6120 FTM Player's Edition Orange, 2016

This is a real treat – a Gretsch G6120 FTM Player’s Edition, with a spectacular flame maple body, string-through Bigsby, pinned bridge, and locking tuners! This is a seriously good guitar, and these modern examples are among the best Gretsch has ever produced. Gretsch introduced the 6120 in 1954 and it was an immediate hit, adopted by many of the top players like Chet Atkins and Eddie Cochrane.
