Gretsch 6121w

Gretsch 6121w Round-Up

Here's a very cool Gretsch solid body - the 6121W Roundup. This instrument has an arched maple top with "G" brand on the upper bout, two-piece mahogany body, Mahogany neck, dual DynaSonic™ single-coil pickups, polished Bigsby® B3CB vibrato tailpiece, rosewood fingerboard, vintage "wide-block" position markers engraved with full western motif, Grover® Stay-Tite machine heads, "arrow" knobs, and gold hardware.

The scale length of this guitar is 24.6" (625mm), with a nut width of 1 11/16". The fretboard is Rosewood, 22 frets with a 12" radius. Body is 13.5" wide, 1.75" deep. The control scheme includes a 3-way toggle for pickup selection, separate volume controls for each pickup, and a master tone and master volume.

Other features/appointments include aged Vintage Wide-Block Pearloid Inlay Position Markers with Western Motif of Cactus and Steerheads and Fences, "G" Brand on the Body, Aged Fingerboard and Headstock Binding, Multiple Aged Body Bindings, Inlaid Aged Pearloid Steerhead and Gretsch Logo on Headstock, Gold Plexi Pickguard, Arrow Knobs, Knurled Strap Retainer Knobs, Adjustable Truss Rod.

Instrument is in mint condition - plastic film still covers all the cover panels on the back of the guitar and the pickguard (as you will see from the pictures, the plastic on the plate on the back of the treble horn is rolled up halfway. I did not have the heart to rip it off completely - I'll give the new owner that pleasure!) This is a one-owner guitar - a good customer of mine purchased this 6121 and a Gretch Rancher acoustic together, but traded this one in against a Breedlove acoustic as he never gets to play it. All original paperwork is present, and the original Gretsch hardshell case is included.

Current retail price on this guitar is $2,925.
