Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins Orange 1958

The first of several Gretsch guitars with the endorsement of country legend Chet Atkins, the 6120 Chet Atkins Hollowbody is a prime example of the type of guitar most commonly associated with Gretch.

Like many Gretsch archtops, this model has been embraced by a number of rockabilly guitarists including Brian Setzer. Early 6120s have a large G engraved on the lower end of the body and Western-themed inlays.
