Like a kid in a candy store with no-limit credit card, our guitar buyer approached the Gretsch Custom Shop with a list of make-believe mods. Gretsch executed his wish-list to perfection by replacing the original f-holes with cats-eyes, adding double-thumb marker inlays to the fretboard, and equipping this fantasy 6120 with TV Jones Classic pickups to re-create the complex sound of the original Gretsch pups. To make it an even more unique custom-shop creation, Gretsch gave it a sparkling Lake Placid Blue finish--ordinarily reserved for just Fender guitars. Other deluxe hardware and appointments include a Bigsby B-6 bridge and an engraved Chet Atkins signature on the gold pickguard.

If you're a purist looking for a period-correct 1959 Gretsch 6120, look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you want to own an utterly unique piece of iconic guitar history with enormous collectibility potential, look no further.

Gretsch® Instrument Limited Lifetime Warranty FMIC warrants your Gretsch brand instrument to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as it is owned by the original retail purchaser, except that pickups, switches, jacks, controls, all other electronic components, tuning machines, hardware, pickguards, plated surfaces, gig bags, cases and case hardware are warranted for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. This warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized Gretsch Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein. IMPORTANT: PLEASE RETAIN YOUR ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, AS IT IS YOUR PROOF OF PURCHASE VALIDATING THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. FMIC has established a network of independent Authorized Service Centers for warranty service. The Gretsch Dealer from whom you purchased your instrument may also be authorized for warranty service and should be the first point of contact when service of any kind is required for your Gretsch instrument. To receive warranty service, return the complete instrument to an Authorized Service Center, with your sales receipt as proof of purchase, during the applicable warranty period. Defective components that qualify for coverage under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at FMIC's discretion) without charge. Remedies beyond normal service repair of any Gretsch instrument require both an evaluation and confirmation of the defect and a direct recommendation to FMIC from an Authorized Service Center for alternative considerations. All transportation, insurance and freight charges associated with warranty service and repairs on Gretsch instruments are the responsibility of the purchaser, as is any service initiated for the purpose of customizing setups or adjustments beyond factory specifications. Initial standard setup and adjustment of the instrument and its components at the time of purchase are considered normal Dealer product preparation, and are not covered by this warranty.
