Here's a fairly uncommon and cool Gretsch. 1989 was the first year of Gretsch's revival and the 6120W was one of the models that led the charge. Built to recall the classic western appointed 6120s of the 50s, these were a favorite of many players including the Reverend Horton Heat.   The hollow body is laminated maple for classic tone. The rosewood fingerboard features engraved block markers. Dual Filtertron pickups deliver vintage tone. Sealed Gretsch tuners and an adjustable roller bridge keep it rock solid. A Bigsby V-cut vibrato tailpiece brings the twang. The finish is classic Gretsch orange transparent. A cool and somewhat uncommon model!

This 6120 plays great with low action and nice feel. The frets are good and the neck is straight. The pickups sound awesome and offer tons of vintage tone. Everything works as it should. A great guitar. This is a nice example in great shape for its age. In overall EX condition, it has been taken care. It shows light pick and clearcoat scratches, light indents and dings, and light to moderate fading of the gold hardware. A good looking guitar. Comes in a Gretsch hardshell case.

These early Western reissues are a cool mix of features and eras. Classic Filtertron tone mixed with the earlier western appointments. From an era when Gretsch was just getting back its footing. These just don't turn up as much as newer 6120s. Here's your chance to grab a nice example.
