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

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

The Gretsch 6120DSW Nashville reproduces the 1955 6120 models whose popularity was led by Chet Atkins.  These are named Nashville because the license agreement with Atkins lapsed in 1980 with the end of Gretsch production.  Atkins signed a new agreement with Gibson in 1981,  and in 2007 Gretsch was able to renew the relationship.  The Gretsch 6120DSW Nashville  model,  with a few changes – primarily the Chet pickguard, Gold Bigsby with vintage handle, aluminum vs brass nut  and pickups by TV Jones rather than Seymour Duncan – is now called the G6120T-55 Vintage Select Edition ’55 Chet Atkins®.  The core of the guitar and other hardware are the same.

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❌ Epiphone Elite 1965 Casino Natural, 2003

❌SOLD❌  Epiphone Elite 1965 Casino Natural, 2003

The Epiphone Elite 1965 Casino recalls one of the most famous guitars – the one played by John Lennon on many recordings. In fact, Lennon, McCartney and Harrison all had Casinos and McCartney still uses his.   There were many other Casino players,  including members of the Rolling Stones and Beach Boys. Originally built as a Sunburst model, by 1968 (during the White Album sessions) Lennon had the finish stripped off, with two coats of thin clear lacquer re-applied.    It was felt that this improved the tone and resonance of the guitar, and this look has become a de facto standard, especially without the pickguard.

❌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.
