This very limited version of the 6120 features a thin solid maple body as opposed to the usual 3-ply laminated maple that is used on the standard models. These guitars were only manufactured in 2004.

"The Gretsch 6120 is a hollow body electric guitar with f-holes manufactured by Gretsch and first appearing in the mid-1950's with the endorsement of Chet Atkins. It was quickly adopted by rockabilly artist Eddie Cochran, Duane Eddy and many others. The 6120 is readily identifiable by its distinctive orange color. After George Harrison played Gretsch Country Gentleman and Tennessean models (which, like the 6120, were developed with and endorsed by Chet Atkins) Gretsch found they could scarcely keep up with demand" (Wikipedia).
