From Gretsch:

"Inspired by the original CGP (Certified Guitar Player), Chet Atkins, this Country Gentleman is more than able to keep up with the most fleet-fingered guitarist. Packed with the sound, style and features that made the original a legend, the ’59 Gent provides highly responsive, amazingly articulate sound.

A pair of TV Jones® pickups—a Super’Tron Classic Plus bridge pickup and Super’Tron neck pickup—responds to every stroke with defined, eloquent tone. The modified control layout features an individual bridge pickup volume, and master volume and tone controls, allowing you to create countless tonal variations. Add the new Gretsch “Squeezebox” capacitors and you get incredibly silky vintage high end. The standard “U”-shaped maple neck with 1.75” nut bears a 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 vintage-style small frets and is a picker’s dream. A pinned rocking bar bridge works with the Bigsby® B6GWVT vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the vintage-style genuine bone nut lets the strings slide freely without binding in the slots.

All of the ’59 Gent’s classic features are here—laminated 5-ply figured maple top with painted F-holes, “wire” vibrato arm, gold G-arrow control knobs, aged white binding with black purfling, gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, aged pearloid thumbnail inlays, gold vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo and gold Grover® Imperial™ tuning machines with ‘butterbean’ buttons. A truly classic instrument with refined style and sound, the G6122T-59 Vintage Select Edition '59 Chet Atkins® Country Gentleman® Hollow Body with Bigsby® is a fine addition to any guitarist’s collection."

Walnut Stain, Gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, Hollow laminated figured Maple body with the parallel bracing, Standard U shaped Maple neck, Bound 12" radius Ebony fingerboard with the pearloid neo-classic thumbnail inlays and vintage small frets, 25.5" scale length, 1.75" nut width, TV Jones Super’Tron Classic Plus bridge and TV Jones Super'Tron neck pickups, 3-way toggle switching with the master volume and tone controls plus a volume control for the bridge pickup, Rocking Bar bridge on a pinned Rosewood base, Bigsby B6GWVT vibrato and Grover Imperial tuners, With hardshell case
