1955 brought the world such classic songs as "Rock Around the Clock" and "Ain't That A Shame." That same year the Gretsch Company produced an instrument with the same timeless qualities. From the Gretsch Custom Shop comes a reproduction of that guitar”the G6120DSW-R Chet Atkins 1955 Relic. A limited edition, only 50 guitars will be produced. Gently distressed to look like a trusty guitar companion that has seen many miles with you, your first encounter with this luscious guitar's vibrant lacquer-finished 3-ply maple body will surely resonate deep down to your soul.
Re-creating the complex rich tones of the original are a pair of Seymour Duncan DynaSonic pickups with the string vibrations being transferred via a rosewood-based, aluminum-compensated Bigsby bridge. Not only will the vintage-style parallel bracing and sound post satisfy sonically, the coolness factor of the "G" branded body and western motif may result in your just opening the case and staring at this U.S.-made Gretsch guitar for hours.

Pros: plays like a dream. bigsby, better than most looks great Cons: only 50 made... kinda high for what you're getting. i mean this guitar minus chet atkins could make it considerably less Recommend it? Only for really big fans with the money to burn. otherwise just pick up a quality Gretsch
this is a great guitar. been looking for a chet akins for a while and so far this seems to be the one. its great for that foo fighters or green day sound. nice humbuckers and not too wide a body.
Great guitar. i played it at the store and it sounded awesome. if i had an extra 7 grand lying around i would deffinately get it.
