About This Listing

The Gretsch G6122T-59GE Vintage Select 1959 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman is packed with the sound and style that made these hollowbody electric guitars legendary. Its arched maple body yields an open-sounding snappy tone that's beautifully enhanced by a pair of vintage-voiced TV Jones Super'Tron humbuckers. Built to 1959 specs, this guitar features painted F-holes, a wire vibrato arm, gold G Arrow control knobs, aged white binding with black purfling, and more. The Gretsch G6122T-59GE Vintage Select 1959 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman hollowbody electric guitar is a true classic that belongs in your collection.

Gretsch G6122T-59GE Hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Arched maple body provides your tone with excellent definition

  • Sweet vintage tone from TV Jones Super'Tron pickups

  • Two volume controls + one tone control = exceptional sonic flexibility

  • Bigsby tailpiece yields smooth vibrato action

Arched maple body provides your tone with excellent definition

Maple has to be one of the most lively, bright, and colorful tonewoods out there, which is exactly why Gretsch decided to make their G6122T-59GE Vintage Select 1959 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman almost entirely out of this wonderful wood. At Sweetwater, we've found that this hollowbody's arched body yields a wonderfully snappy, open tone that, when combined with the vivid sound of its TV Jones Super'Tron pickups, cuts through a dense mix and sounds great in any situation.

Sweet vintage tone from TV Jones Super'Tron pickups

The Gretsch G6122T-59GE Vintage Select 1959 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman packs a wide-ranging vintage-style voice, thanks to a Super'Tron Classic Plus bridge pickup and Super'Tron neck pickup. These pickups respond to every stroke of your playing with defined, eloquent tone.

Two volume controls + one tone control = exceptional sonic flexibility

It's easy to stereotype the Gretsch G6122T-59GE Vintage Select 1959 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman until you play it, and then you realize you can pull off a lot of tonal tricks with it. With a volume control for each pickup, you can create your perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control lets you fine-tune your sound once you have the pickups dialed in. And thanks to the master volume control, you can take your tube amp from clean to growling without changing the balance between your pickups. Of course, you'll get sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually, but there's a lot of territory to cover when you combine them.

Bigsby tailpiece yields smooth vibrato action

Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby-style tailpiece adds to the Gretsch G6122T-59GE Vintage Select 1959 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman. Based on the original design created by Paul A. Bigsby, this Bigsby Licensed tailpiece requires next to no effort to use, making it particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends.

Gretsch G6122T-59GE Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:

  • 6-string hollowbody electric guitar with period-correct specs

  • Arched maple body delivers a deliciously snappy, open tone

  • TV Jones Super'Tron pickups yield sweet, vintage character

  • Highly playable standard U-shaped maple neck with ebony fingerboard

  • 2 volume controls and 1 tone control create exceptional sonic flexibility

  • Bigsby tailpiece provides smooth vibrato action
