2011 Gretsch G6122 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman


This used Gretsch G6122 1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentlemen is only a few years old and in Excellent condition still – with little playwear throughout. It features an arched Laminated Maple body with simulated f-holes and gold appointments – including hardware, plexiguard pickguard, and Grover Imperial tuners. It also has an Ebony Rocking Bar-style bridge, gold Bigsby B6G Vibrato tailpiece, and a double Muffler muting system – so you can mute either the top three strings, the bottom three, or all six.

The Maple neck is¬†comfortable to play and the Ebony fingerboard is clean, while the slightly shorter 24.6″ scale length is great for bends and soloing. It also has a 1.6875″ nut width and the elusive zero fret, which allows for a tone that more closely resembles a fretted string than an open string. Loaded with a pair of High Sensitive Filter’Tron humbuckers, you can play any number of styles of music through it – be it harder rock, blues, jazz, or country. With its multiple controls and switches, you have plenty with which to find your sound – including a three-way pickup switch and a three-way Master Tone switch, as well as a Standby switch. This Gretsch G6122 1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman is from 2011 and has seen little playing time and is an absolute steal. Includes original hardshell time.
