GRETSCH G6120T-55 VSE '55 Chet Atkins Hollow Body Bigsby Orange Stain

Hollow body electric guitar with TV Jones T-armond pickups and Bigsby vibrato, including case and certificate

The Gretsch G6120T-55 Hollow-Body Vintage Orange Stain is a Chet Atkins signature 6-string electric guitar featuring a maple body and neck, a rosewood fingerboard, and a vintage orange stain finish. The G6120T-55 is a veritable tonal multi-tool, with an easy-playing, comfortable feel and ringing projection.

A pair of TV Jones T-Armond single-coil pickups create a multi-dimensional tone with plenty of articulate detail whilst controls allow you to blend and shape the sound for countless tonal variations. The standard “U”-shaped maple neck features a 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets. A pinned aluminium compensated bridge works with the Bigsby B6GBVF vibrato tailpiece for a stable tuning whilst a vintage-style polished aluminium nut delivers signature snappy twang.
