The Gretsch G6122-1962: An Extraordinary Gentleman

Designed with the sophisticated guitarist in mind, the Gretsch G6122-1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman guitar builds atop a hollow maple body with an impressive amount of special features and accessories.

Made to be Played

The all-maple construction and hollowbody design of the G6122 yield a bright tone that resonates organically. The three-piece maple neck is set into the body, and capped with an ebony fretboard for smooth playing. A comfort pad on the guitar's back ensures you'll have no problem enduring through late night jam sessions. You can make notes flutter with the Bigsby vibrato tailpiece, or push all the way down for dramatic dives.

Filter'Trons for Definitive Gretsch Sound

The G6122 sports Gretsch Filter'Tron pickups in the bridge and neck positions. These humbuckers are renowned for their clarity and definition, providing the jangly but rich clean tones the guitar's namesake is known for. Of course, the Filter'Trons also deliver when you need less gentle, and a bit more grit. Playing the guitar through an overdriven tube amp will make the Filter'Trons come alive with warm harmonics, while retaining the tonal definition of a clean signal.

An Abundance of Gentlemanly Accessories

A tone tinkerer's delight, the G6122's top features an array of knobs and switches that may intimidate some, but are quite intuitive and player-friendly. A master volume knob on the lower cutaway controls the guitar's overall volume, while the two knobs on the guitar's bout adjust the individual bridge and pickup volume levels. A three-way pickup selector toggles between the two, and a standby switch instantly mutes the sound, enabling you to make your own tremolo effects.

Tone adjustments are handled by the three-position tone switch. This switch instantly changes the guitar's tone from full brightness to slightly rolled-off highs to muffled treble -- think warm jazz tones. Finally, you can mute the top or bottom three strings with the guitar's muffler system, found on two switches near the bridge.

- Semi-hollow body
- Laminated maple top, back, and sides
- Simulated f-holes
