  Here is another outstanding Cream City Music exclusive Pro Series Gretsch! This is a Factory Special Run, or “FSR” model designed by Gretsch specialist and Cream City Music co-owner Ben Derickson. Only 12 were made and each will are numbered and shipped with a certificate of authenticity. This specific guitar (#12 of 12) is a "one-off" and has been modified with a specially produced set of TV Jones Classic FilterTron pickjups done in a DeArmond style mount. We went with a white bobbin insert as a nod to the 1956 prototype 6120 modded out by Chet Atkins and Ray Butts. The white bobbin in the pickups compliments the white "G" brand very nicely!

 The original 1955 Gretsch 6120 is big on tone, features and of course personality! Based on the "first-year" 1955 Chet Atkins hollow body, this is the G6120-DSW from the Gretsch Professional Collection!  The original G6120 is among the most collectable guitars in the world because the feature set it introduced and was revolutionary both in tone, functionality and of course, style. The G6120-DSW recreates the look sound and feel of an original 1955 6120 but with modern dependability and durability. The guitar is perfect for vintage style country western and rockabilly but is also well suited for many music styles. The G6120DSW  makes a great blues or jazz guitar. This guitar is pure Gretsch quality with top notch fretwork and neck angle providing the perfect playability that the Gretsch Professional Collection is known for. If you're looking for truly classic looks and sound you must try this guitar! This is a brand new factory first guitar and comes with the deluxe Gretsch hard case, all documentation and the Gretsch Limited lifetime warranty. If you have any questions at all please feel free to give us a call!
