I'm about to buy a G6122 country classic II but I don't really can find the specs and features about that guitar.
What is the difference between a Country gentleman II and a Country Classic II for example ?

Hey y'all!

I'm playing two Gretsch 5120's (One orange-125th anny- and a black one) both self-fitted with TVJones pickups. LOVE these guitars, and with the TvJones', they play, feel and sound JUST like the expensive ones...for a third of the price. I'm running them through either my 62' Tremolux Head and cab, 59' Bassman reissue, or my Blues Jr (laquored tweed). Love their sound, feel, tone. But I would't fight you if you made me take a White Falcon! Haha! Cheers!

Myself, I''m down to two, the basic 'vette and a 6120Jr. I would post pictures but the attachment wasn't working right , yet!


I have a Black Gretsch G5120 Electromatic modified with TV Jones classic pickups. Even though this model is considered a lower end model, the new pickups make this guitar sound awesome. :D

By the way I play my guitar through a VOX Valvetronix set on the AC15 with a clean tone.

1966 Tennessean (6119). Original plastic-knobbed tuning keys broke within about a year so I replaced them with Schaller heads (still working). Hated the original HiLoTrons. Was living in Los Angeles and a friend at a guitar shop said there was guy in Santa Barbara who just got back from England and was hand-winding pickups; said he'd put some new ones on my Tenny. I sent the guitar up the coast and it came back with a pair of mid-seventies Seymour Duncans, wrapped in electrical tape. Never knew what happened to the original HiLoTrons - I guess Seymour kept them. Wish I knew then about "collectibility" but the Duncan pickups are still going strong. I'm thinking about buying some re-issue HiLoTrons to hear how they sound. Opinions?

I have an Orange 5120 and a Solid body of some kind (it doesn't look like the DuoJet's listed on the gretsch website, nor does it look like the JetPro's listed on the website...) I'll have to get a picture taken...

Here's the 5120 and my little practice rig (custom cabinet by Lopoline and a Kustom 5W tube amp)
