About This Listing

This 1960 Gretsch 6119 Chet Atkins Tennessean has a fantastic story.

I purchased this guitar from the 2nd owner. He purchased this guitar in 1968 in London with the current modifications you see. These mods are: neck humbucker, 2 vol & 2 tone, 3-way switch wired for 3-way selector. He was a gigging guitarist for 25+ years in London and this was his #1.

When I brought it to my luthier, he pointed out that the neck had been broken at the heel but repaired a long time ago, and it was solid and did not need a new neck angle. Here are the things he sorted out:
- Brand new refret; he has done 3 refrets for me @ this point, and it feels amazing
- Glued pickguard back together since sourcing a new one was quite expensive and not original; it's quite solid now
- Massive cleanup; this guitar was completely covered in nicotine & it now is not:)
- Complete polish on the whole guitar
- Cleaning of output jack and hardware

This guitar sounds amazing. The bridge pickup is that original Filtertron, and with a little slapback, you're right there. The neck pickup is quite dark. A cool tone though when blended with the bridge pickup. I was considering getting another Filtertron for the neck, but I have left it as is for now. The Bigsby has an amazing feel to it. A nice loose, old spring. This wouldn't be a difficult mod though if you're interested. Cheers!
