2015 Gretsch G6122-12 Natural

2015 Gretsch G6122-12 Natural

As lovely as a semi-hollowbody electric 12-string guitar can get, it’s that nice. From our great friends at Gretsch under the aegis of Fender comes this top-of-the-line, beautifully made-in-Japan 6122-12. I can say from the experience of not only having been working on and dealing in fine guitars for over fifty years, but having worked in the original Gretsch factory in Brooklyn, NY, in the 1960s, that these MIJ Gretsches are by far the finest production-line ones ever. Not to take anything away from the originals, which are very cool, but these are, simply put, very refined. This particular example was sold new at my walk-in store in 2015 and has been immaculately kept ever since. No scratches, no dings, literally zero fret wear; it was jes’ plain boughten and fergot about. It is totally true to the original 6122 designs with a pair of those fabulous Filter ‘Tron pickups and all the original Gretsch switches and controls. Even has an original-style “THE CHET ATKINS COUNTRY GENTLEMAN” gold-plated escutcheon plate on the peghead, which I musta personally engraved hundreds of in 1965 when I was about eighteen years old and briefly doing that at Gretsch on an ancient, rickety pantograph engraving machine before moving up to a much more prestigious position on the production floor.  But the real deal here is that this is one wonderfully solid, smooth-as-silk semi-hollowbody electric twelve. Got all its original papers, case pocket stuff with it too and original Gretsch hard shell case of course, also spotlessly clean. Can’t get no finer than this. Only $1995 w/oshc
