The first of several Gretsch guitars with the endorsement of country legend Chet Atkins, the 6120 Chet Atkins Hollowbody is a prime example of the type of guitar most commonly associated with Gretsch. This electric archtop premiered in 1955 with bound F-holes, a Bigsby tremolo tailpiece, and a striking set of finishes. In late 1961, the 6120 switched form a single to a double cutaway design. In 1971, the model number was updated to 7660. The body is constructed entirely of maple and comes with Gretsch's signature Filtertron pickups. An indian rosewood fingerboard with thumbnail inlays on a maple neck makes a for a silky touch and well rounded hi end. This guitar comes with it's original case.
