Vintage 1967 Gretsch Nashville 6120 Filtertron pickups
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-30)
Price : US $1,525.
ONE CENT OPENING BID AND NO RESERVE!!! Here is a nice old player condition '67 Nashville that is sporting a very SWEET SOUNDING pair of original
Filtertron pickups and a nice smooth feeling Bigsby vibrato.
This guitar plays beautifully, nice low action and the intonation is surprisingly good (thanks to the aftermarket Gibson bridge) despite the
fact that it is indeed a Gretsch.
The guitar is mostly original, no cracks or breaks....however there are a few ''issues'' as we say....
the neck has obviously been reset, there is a bit of your typical Gretsch binding rot here and there, but not too bad overall.....the original truss rod cover is missing, original case is missing the handle.
This guitar weighs 7.6 pounds on my digital scale.
I plan on shipping it out with the newer Gibson Tune-o-matic bridge on it, that is UNLESS the buyer would rather have an old aluminum Bigsby bridge with non adjustable
intonation.....which I also have...it's your call....I like to give the people options.
As a matter of curiosity, I used this guitar for the Harrison-esque slide solo on the Sarah Evans hit ''Real Fine Place To Start''.
I always thought this bridge Filtertron pickup sounded great slightly distorted for slide....the neck pickup is warm and fat as can be.
Not a collector, but a very solid and affordable old Gretsch for the man who actually wants one to play.
$45.00 shipping and insurance...domestic U.S. shipping only.
