Title:  

Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins
Date:
1959
Publisher/Studio:
Brooklyn, NY: Fred Gretsch Manufacturing Company

Content Description: 

Introduced in 1955, the 6120 was co-designed by, and made for, Chet Atkins to feature his signature style of fingerpicking. The model was also popularized by Eddie Cochran and Duane Eddy. Like other Gretsch guitar models, the 6120 changed constantly; by 1959 the Bigsby vibrato was added as a standard feature. This hollow-body electric guitar was Atkins's personal instrument and appeared on the 1961 Chet Atkins' Workshop album cover.
