About This Listing

Original owner (bought new). Includes original pickguard (I forget to reinstall before taking pics). It also has the original machine heads (I put the original heads back before taking pics - I had vintage locking heads on it - they weren't necessary). The Bigsby was installed with a VibraMate (+ "string spoiler" for better intonation and ease of changing strings) mounting kit that doesn't require hole drilling. A GraphTech ResoMax bridge is also installed. The original bridge and tailpiece is included if you prefer a hardtail and want the original bridge. Also included are the original P90 pickups, which of course are also fabulous. The installed pickups are TV Jones filtertrons. I already boxed up the guitar, but if memory serves correctly, the bridge is in the 6.5K DCR and neck in the 5.5K range. I was going for a Pete Townshend Who's Next (he used a Gretsch 6120 for that album), Malcolm Young, Brian Setzer sound with this guitar. It did all of that wonderfully. This guitar was serviced by Fren Asken (reputable luthier) in LA while I lived there i.e. it's been properly serviced, maintained, and stays in tune with a quick dip of the Bigsby after bending note two steps up - the GraphTech bridge really makes a difference. The original nut was also replaced by Fren Asken, which is why the guitar stays in tune (no disrespect intended, but they don't cut nuts properly at factory). I've since bought a '59 6120 Gretsch, thus the sale.
