Gruhn Guitars Gretsch Chet 6120

1957 Gretsch Chet Atkins Hollow Body (6120)

The original Chet Atkins Hollow Body -- also known by its model number, 6120 -- had western-style appointments in almost every available space, but by 1957 Chet had brought the appearance of his guitar more in line with his low-key demeanor and playing style.

The last vestiges of the West on this beautiful 6120 are the horseshoe inlay on the peghead and the rural-looking signpost that bears his signature on the pickguard.

The model does still retain the functional necessities that Chet specified from the beginning: a metal nut and bridge for better sustain, plus a Bigsby vibrola.

This guitar (inv. #EG2869) is in exceptionally fine condition with a Gretsch hard case(SOLD).

This instrument is SOLD
