I have owned 3 original 50's 6120 guitars and I decided to try one of the newer models. Here is my take. The guitar itself, neck shape, finish, look and appointments are dead on. This is an exact replica of a 1954-55 first version of the guitar in every way. Even the metal nut. The bigsby handle is a replica of the fixed, flat handle type but it swings away. The only thing this guitar lacked were the pickups. The original pickups measures a whimpy 7K when I bought the guitar. Having played many original Rowe Dynasonics I can tell you I never saw one under 10K. Many people have been shelling out $500 to have Duncan custom shops installed. I chose to consult my pickup Ghuru who rewinds all my vintage stuff, Lindy Fralin. I told him the issue and he offered to redo the to vintage specs. The result was a balanced pair of Dynasonics, one 10K and the other 11K. He rewound them and reversed the polarity of one to make them hum-cancelling. The guitar can really push an amp now. Much better for my taste. Tremendous improvement. The guitar is in mint shape. Not a scratch on it. Comes in OHSC. Never left the house. I need some cash and it is the only guitar I own that is replaceable. Email questions.
