Gretsch 6122-S Country Classic I Preowned 1992


In the early 90's, Gretsch was back under the ownership of the Gretsch family, and was building vintage recreations out of their famous Terada factory. This 1992 Country Classic I is a fantastic example of the incredible guitars being built out of that factory. 

This Country Classic I was Grestch's homage to the single cutaway version of the Country Gentleman, with real F-holes, a slim and fast neck adjustable bridge with Bigsby vibrato. The original Filter'trons have been replaced with TV Jones Super'trons, which have more body and output for classic early 60's tones. 

This 1992 model is well-played but not mistreated, and while it has surface and playing scratches, it's in fantastic condition for a guitar of it's age. The gold hardware has developed wonderful patina, and the ivory binding has aged to a lovely cream colour. It sounds enormous, with bite and snarl in the bridge position and incredible sparkle and chime in the neck position. It plays beautifully too, with great intonation and tuning stability. An absolutely incredible Gretsch without the vintage price tag! Includes original Gretsch hardshell case.
