Gretsch 6122 1959

Sorry, this listing has ended.


Gretsch Country Gentleman 6122-1959 in fantastic condition. Comes with OHSC. Specs listed below. 

Nice setup and perfect action, done by local Seattle master luthier (now moved to VT) Cat Fox. The neck is one of the most comfortable I've ever played. I play a lot of acoustic and there is never any adjustment time when I go to this guitar. This guitar is just so easy and fun to play - and it doesn't hurt that it looks incredibly cool.  Great for country, rock, rockabilly, fingerstyle, jazz - it truly does everything well. The video below is a great demo of it's capabilities.

I believe the bigsby is made to be easily removable, so that can be left on or off, according to your preference.
