The Solid Body Version of the Hollow 6120.


1955 Gretsch 6121 Chet Atkins Solid Body.


This compact 13 1/4-inch-wide guitar weighs in at just 7.50 lbs. and has a very comfortable nut width of 1 11/16 inches and a scale length of 24 1/2 inches. Chambered mahogany body with a large "G" brand on the lower bass bout. The sides of the guitar are adorned with the same machine-engraved studded leather binding as the model 6130 "Round Up", which is inlaid into the sides and decorated with steersheads and cactus. One-piece mahogany neck with a medium-to-thick profile. Rosewood fretboard with 22 original 'thin' frets and inlaid mother-of-pearl block 'Cows-and-Cactus' position markers. Headstock with inlaid mother-of-pearl Gretsch "T-roof" logo and 'Steershead' inlay. Individual Grover StaTite open-back tuners with oval metal buttons. Two single-coil DeArmond (Gretsch Dynasonic) pickups, with outputs of 3.14k and 3.23k. Gold Lucite Chet Atkins signature signpost pickguard. Four controls (two individual volume controls and master tone control in a triangular configuration on lower treble bout and master volume control on upper treble bout) plus three-way selector switch on upper bass bout. "Arrow-through-G" knobs with cross-hatch pattern on sides. Compensated aluminum bridge saddle on aluminum base with two height adjustment screws and unplated aluminum Bigsby B-3 vibrato tailpiece with pivoting arm. Gold-plated hardware. This guitar has its original aluminum nut. Apart from some minimal belt-buckle wear, a tiny amount of finish checking and some very slight varnish wear to the back of the neck this is a truly exceptional and totally original guitar in (9.25) near mint condition. Complete with the original jeweled brown leather Western strap. Housed in its original tweed fabric-covered hardshell case with red velvet lining (8.50).
