1999 Left Handed Gretsch 6119LH Tennessee Rose No longer Available

ere’s a lovely 1999 Left Handed Gretsch 6119LH Tennessee Rose. We don’t see a lot of this model, and even fewer in left handed. The Tennessee Rose is a modern rendering of the Tennessean, which was very popular with British bands during the early to mid 1960’s.

This particular guitar was built a few years before 2003, when Fender stepped up to an agreement with Gretsch. Likely built in the Terada plant where most ‘pro-line’ Gretsch guitars are now made, this is an excellent instrument.

Cadillac Green Gretsch G6196T Country Club

Cadillac Green Gretsch G6196T Country Club

Presenting – the Cadillac Green Gretsch G6196T Country Club!

Occupying a position near the top of the Gretsch line since its introduction in 1954, the Country Club is often overshadowed by its slightly younger (1955) sibling, the White Falcon. While the two share many common features – body shape and size, scale length, much hardware – the Country Club features a solid spruce top, pushing it closer to the Gibson models like the Super 400.

2012 Gretsch G6199B Billy Bo Jupiter Thunderbird Bass SOLD

2012 Gretsch G6199B Billy Bo Jupiter Thunderbird Bass  SOLD

This is a 2012 Gretsch G6199B Billy Bo Jupiter Thunderbird Bass! Thought up by Billy Gibbons, Bo Diddley and Gretsch, the 30.0 inch scale Billy Bo Bass really stands out on stage and on track.

The Jupiter Thunderbirds are based on a very few instruments Bo Diddley had built at the Gretsch factory around 1959. After it came into the possession of Billy Gibbons and appeared on several ZZ Top recordings, Gibbons approached Gretch with the idea of making it a production model partly to have some for touring! The guitar model is the G6199.
