  • Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Electric G6122II

    As reviewed by Steve on 6/6/2010

    This is one sweet guitar! Everything about it is fantastic, from the looks to the sound! One of mythe best things about Gretsch guitars is the necks, they are the most comfortable necks I've ever run across on any guitar, and a comfortable neck means you will play the guitar longer and more often! The Chet Atkins Country Gentlemen guitars are all fantastic but this one (G612111) is the best I've ever personally seen! 5 stars is the most I'm allowed to give, but I'd give it 10 if they let me!

  • Two Thumbs Way Up

    As reviewed by Jake Lib on 6/6/2010

    Although this guitar will put a dent in your wallet, it is really worth every single penny. Not only is it stunningly beautiful, it sounds great and plays even better. It has good action and it just feels right in your hands. This is everything and more that we have come to expect from Gretsch. I play mostly indie rock, but this guitar is also great for blues, jazz and even heavier rock styles. Definitely recommended.

  • Great Guitar!

    As reviewed by C.C. on 6/24/2010

    Great gitar for jazz and select styles of rock. The tone i so nice and warm. It can get very bridge-like or neck-like which the pickup selector. Very wide range of frequencies. thebigsy tremolo is great and will stay in tune most of the time. The finish is beautiful and will last a long time. I play in a jazz band and it fits perfectly with the band bcaus it has a nie hollow sound when needed. Overall awesome guitar!
