Chicago Music Exchange Demos a ’63 Gretsch Chet Atkins 6120

Posted:

The staff at Chicago Music Exchange recently got their hands on a 1963 Gretsch Chet Atkins 6120 and posted a video that got up close and personal to the classic guitar.

“We were lucky enough to purchase this from a pro player who owned, played and loved (ie. took meticulous care of) this guitar for a very long time. The original orange color is one of the most vibrant we’ve seen. The neck is smooth as silk and the thing practically plays itself and the Bigsby is extremely responsive and a joy to use. The filtertrons are chimey and thick sounding and even unplugged the guitar sings loud and clear,” the vendor wrote in the guitar’s description.

While Chicago Music Exchange’s website notes that the guitar was recently sold, you can still get a great look at the Gretsch beauty in the video below.
