One of the Sweetest Playing Axes in the Business!

By W.T.

from Nashville, Tennessee

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

As a Strat player for years, I just bought my very first semi hollow body...tried the Rickenbackers, Gibsons,,,Tennessee Rose is one very fine, high guitar. For pro or starter alike, this instrument will make your music sound better, very easily tuned and kept in tune, low maintenance and a sweet sweet sound. Very easy on the fingers. You will like this one.

An Unsung Hero


from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

As you might figure, this guitar can do rockabilly, and it can do the blues, and it can do country. But really, if you are clever with the volume and tone knobs, and aren't afraid to dig into it, you can get any sound out of this baby. I've been able to do heavy rock stuff like Jack White, Foo Fighters, Rage Against the Machine, to more indie and experimental stuff like Modest Mouse, Radiohead, and Deerhunter, just as easily as I can kick out the blues/rockabilly jams. Surprisingly, this thing takes distortion and other effects extremely well. And you won't find a better looking guitar anywhere, or one that's easier to play. I've been looking for my "perfect guitar" for years, and I've tried every style of Gibson and Fender in existence. I picked this up to play on a "why the hell not" while in a GC one day, and I was there for hours. I came back the next day, sold my Taylor T5 and emptied my bank account so I could take it home. My point is, you owe to yourself to at least try it. Only "downside": this thing is a little finicky about staying in tune if you use the Bigsby, and it isn't ideal for 'shredding'. But what did you expect it to be?

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

    I have been playing guitar for about 10 years and have owned probably 50 different guitars in that time frame ( Gibson, Fender, Heritage, G&L, Rickenbacker, Ibanez, Martin, Taylor, etc). I had been looking for "The Sound" ( the eternal hunt, I know). I feel I finally found it with this guitar. Beautiful looking, resonant when unplugged, quality craftsmanship, and extremely versatile. It's not just for rockabilly or jazz. It can rock with the best of them and shines with effects as well. I believe my search has ended ( although, you can never have too many guitars, unless your wife says so ) This guitar is truly a keeper and did I mention how beautiful it is !!!
