Original 1960 Gretsch Chet Atkins 6120 - SN 39431 - in OHSC
The guitar is in near perfect condition with no dings, scratches, chips or breaks in the laquer, anywhere. Almost no color fade. It is all original except tuners and pickguard. This is a fabulous guitar and is as close to perfect as any 50-year old can expect to be. I am the second owner and it has been stored in its OHSC in a non-smoking airconditioned house since I bought it in 1968. Never gigged, almost no playwear
Top is unmarked. No dings, no scratches, just great woodgrain and a fabulous gloss.
Back has, very, very slight buckle rash - nothing that breaks the laquer and nothing I can capture in the photos. Fabulous gloss and great grain figure. Sides and binding are immaculate - 100% tight and intact.
Very slight playwear on the sides of the neck of neck - see photos 8 and 9. Otherwise in perfect condition. Headstock is 100%, no dings, tight binding and inlay. I had original tuners professionally replaced years ago with period-correct Schallers, see photo 7. Fingerboard and frets show no wear. Plays perfectly up and down the neck.
Very clean ridged gold pickup rings, one crack at the top left corner of neck pup. Look like they have never been off the guitar. USA Patent 2892371 humbuckers - no corrosion - gold has rubbed off and they now look like nickel. All pole screws are clean and shiny, no m
