A mid 1967 Gretsch 6120 Nashville with a pair of excellent sounding Filter'Trons, an upgraded TonePros AVR-II bridge, functional string mute, and a recent pro refret. It’s the perennially cool double-cut 6120, with its classic orange finish, thumbprint inlays, and Gretsch-branded Bigsby; it’s always great to look at and even better to play.

This example dates from ’67 but is otherwise pretty much the same as the 64-66 models. It's original but for the replaced mute felt (the original would have been black foam), frets and aforementioned bridge, but the original bar bridge and base are in the case pocket. The guitar's plastic binding has started to deteriorate in places, with the worst rot showing on the heel cap. The finish is original, and the leatherette back pad is in great shape. Electronics are 100% original with no modifications. The guitar has been set-up in shop with 3-4 64ths super-slinky action.

The neck has a full-feeling C shaped carve with 1-11/16” nut and 1st fret depth of .889”. Scale is 24-3/8”. Filter’Tron pickups both measure 4.2k. The guitar weighs just over 6 lbs.

With original hardshell case.
