Overview

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 Gretsch. This electric archtop premiered in 1955 with bound F-holes, a Bigsby tremolo tailpiece, and a striking set of finishes. In late 1961, the 6120 switched form a single to a double cutaway design. In 1964, it was renamed the Nashville and was given simulated (painted-on) F-holes like several other Gretsch models in this era. In 1971, the model number was updated to 7660.
