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.

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.

A true blast from the past!

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6120DSW Chet Atkins Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

I've always been partial to single coil pickups as I grew up playing Fender strats and teles. This guitar gives me a very cool blues, swing, rockabilly and general Americana sound right out of the box. If you're used to playing power humbuccers you won't like it. This guitar does everything I want it to do very well. Overall, this is a great guitar, flawless quality, amazing finish, and right sound.

A Magnificent Instrument

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6120DSW Chet Atkins Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

The DSW is the quintessential vintage Gretsch, with all the western kitsch of the day, and a range of tonality that is unparalleled. The DSW plays like lightning, will punch, growl, or serenade. An impressively well-built instrument, this distinctive guitar speaks volumnes before the volume knob is touched. But once the red light comes on, this baby has a lot to say that many people have never heard. Forget what you think you know. A Gretsch can do far more than country or Rockabilly.
