    I've been trying to thin the collection of guitars for some time, and I've had a lot of folks wanting to trade rather than buy outright. This came up as a trade for a Gretsch G6120 I had (nice orange Chet Atkins model) and I said I'd take a look. Well.. it came home with me.

    This guitar sounds just perfect through my 57 CHamp RI, no pedals, effect, etc.. just plugged in and played.

    It has a distinct worming mark of an X that the builder placed right in the middle of the fretboard - kind of unique. It also has some great checking.

    Thanks! The neck on this thing is just unbelievable, so comfortable in the hand to play. Intonation was a bit off, but that was easily sorted, I've heard that some folks done like these pickups but I can't understand why. They're a little lower output than my 60, but they sound great.
