1966-69 GRETSCH 6122 CHET ATKINS COUNTRY GENTLEMAN

ON CONSIGNMENT

 

One of the most iconic Gretsch models, the 6122 Chet Aktins Country Gentleman made its debut in 1957. Between 1957 and 1961, the F-holes on the body varied with some examples using simulated painted-on F-holes, some using simulated inlaid plastic F-holes, and others have actual open F-holes. By 1961, the model switched to a double cutaway and most F-holes were of the painted-on variety.  Like the Epiphone Casino, this guitar's reputation was greatly influenced by its association with the Beatles and specifically George Harrison.

 

This 6122 has had a tone control installed at some point, then disconnected, as is the original kill switch. Had a neck reset in the 60’s so no serial is visible, but appointments and pots date to ’66. Original Pickups, hardware, pots and case.
