Q:  What do you get when you put three 6119s together?

A:  18,357


But, yeah, this is pretty cool.  The single pickup Gretsch 6119 Chet Atkins Tennessean was introduced in 1958 and existed for about a year before the model was revamped into the Tennessean we’re more familiar with (ie George Harrison’s guitar).

The single pickup 6119 is a rare bird, and having three of them in one place likely won’t happen around here again!

Essentially a dressed-down 6120 Chet Atkins hollowbody with a single pickup, these early 6119s feature the same trestle-braced body, PAF Filter’Tron, neck dimensions, and hardware as the fancier 6120.  Kind of like the Les Paul Jr is to the Special.

All three of these guitars were shipped in 1960 (as almost all one-pickup 6119s were).  Notice the color variation.  It’s not UV exposure, but differences in the color of the original finish.  Strange stuff!

Great guitars, fun picture to take!

1958 Gibson ES-225TD electric guitar body and headstock

A spectacular instrument that was recently brought to us by the local widow of its original owner, this 225TD is completely original but for the first 5 frets and is in incredible condition. Great neck angle, perfect set up, almost no playwear and killer double P-90 tone.

The ES-225T was Gibson’s first thinline electric model upon its introduction in 1955. The double pickup version was released in 1956. Both models were discontinued at the end of 1959, which corresponded with the introduction of the ES-330 that same year.
