GRETSCH 6120, 1962

orange... Here is another one, double cutaway "ElectroTone" body introduced in late '61, so this is the first year for this body shape.  Horseshoe headstock inlay ,  T-Roof Gretsch logo. Two FilterTrons, pre-compensated aluminum Bigsby bridge, Gretsch-Bigsby v-cutout vibrato, oval-button Grover tuners,  'neo-classic' ebony fretboard with 'thumbprint' inlays, gold-plated hardware with some wear but in good shape. Single mute with red felt-pad under lever switch. The mute pad, which was missing, has been re-built in ebony.  Screw-crack on the pickguard, which nonetheless is solid. Backpad is worn. Professionally refretted. Worn original hardshell case.
Compared to the other '62 6120 shown below in this list, this one is not as 'new', since it has the normal 'checking' you'd expect to find on a 40-year guitar, and in a few spots binding has 'shrunk' a bit, but no piece is missing or un-glued. It's a clean, original guitar, structurally solid and in excellent conditions, which looks and sounds killer.
It comes with a
certificate written in March 2002 by George Gruhn of Gruhn Guitars, Nashville TN, which confirms its complete originality.
