MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY
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.

The Mercedes of Electric Guitars

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6121-1955 Chet Atkins Solid Body Electric Guitar:

Right out of the case this guitar was a dream come true. I had an original Country Gentleman I bought on Rush Street in Chicago in 1963. I sold that gem in 71, and for 38 years I looked for its replacement. This guitar has a neck that is thin, neat, clean and plays like a dream. It took 10 minutes out of the case to tweak a few things,tune it and go. The range of tones is unbelievable. Play whatever you want from rock to blues. No matter which amp I used, no matter how much overdrive or effects I used, the sound was pure, clean, and above all it was fun to play. The first night I played it for 5 hours, and went to work the next day about playing it again that night. It is truly a gem. I have Les Pauls, Strats, and vintage acoustics, but this guitar combines all that I love in guitars.
