Description

Details

The Gretsch G6122T-62 Vintage Select Edition Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Guitar resurrects the classic style of the model made famous by the man himself, as well as The Beatles' George Harrison. Vintage purists as well as contemporary players value the exquisite playing experience afforded by this illustrious guitar, and it rightly deserves its place in musical history. Each model is strung and ready for action, transported in a Gretsch deluxe case to ensure it gets to you safe and sound.

Delightful Hollowbody design

The Gretsch G6122T-62 Vintage Select Edition Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Guitar as gorgeous as ever, boasting a magnificent hollow body design that is the stuff dreams are made of. The body is crafted using laminated maple, which is paired with a laminated 3-ply maple top. Simulated F-holes adorn the top, and the highly resonant body design generates a stirring energy to produce heavenly. The top is reinforced using parallel tone bars to ensure that throughout its life, the Country Gentleman maintains proper form without unwanted buckling or warping.

The body has been treated to a glorious walnut stain, which is complemented by the aged white binding and black purfling. A protective coating of gloss urethane preserves the finish for as long as possible, upholding the elegance of the Country Gentleman for as long as possible. Additional protection is afforded to the upper bout in the form of the stylish gold plexi pickguard adorned with black Gretsch logo.

Substantial yet manageable neck

Fitted to the body is a solid and reliable maple neck, which is shaped to the ever so comfortable standard "U" profile. Aged white binding continues its way from the body, along the neck, and onward around the headstock. Gloss urethane prevents the neck from becoming tacky during performances, maintaining a smooth feel throughout. Paired with the neck is a divine ebony fingerboard, which is shaped to a classic 12-inch radius for seamless string bending and supreme playing comfort. The vintage-style small frets are decorated with aged pearloid neo-classic "thumbnail" position inlays to guide your way in style.

TV Jones Classic pickups

Boasting a pair of TV Jones Classic pickups, every pick stroke, strum or fingerpick is translated with impeccable articulation. Each pickup benefits from an individual volume control, a master volume control, as well as a three-way tone switch, which allows you to pull a plethora of tonal variations from this arrangement to suit your playing style. Gretsch's ingenious "Squeezebox" paper-in-oil capacitors guarantee the smoothest attenuation, which enviable vintage high end. Vintage Gretsch appointments are present and correct in the form of dual foam string mutes with red felt surrounds, as well as a standby switch.

Gig-ready hardware

Whether you're an amateur or a professional, when you buy a Chet Atkins Country Gentleman, you expect the highest quality appointments, and the G6122T-62 doesn't disappoint. The body is home to a Bigsby B6GVT tailpiece, which works harmoniously with the rocking bar bridge with pinned ebony base, ensuring peerless vibrato control. Gold hardware is on offer across the board, from the G-Arrow control knobs to the steadfast Grover Imperial die-cast tuning machines.

Simply put, the Gretsch G6122T-62 Vintage Select Edition Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Guitar is mesmerising in every sense. From its eye-catching finishing touches, through its joyful playability, to its sumptuous tonal palette, this guitar is simply flawless.
