I'm not a big Gretsch fan unless it's a 6120 single cut. I think the 60 and 61 model years are the best of all of them.
This may be the cleanest 60 you'll ever find and it's quite a fine player to boot. So much for the idea that the good ones get played-this one spent most of its life in its very cool and near perfect cowboy case. Vintage Gretsches usually do two things-the binding disintegrate and the pick guard cracks. This one has neither-perfect guard and perfect bindings. Original frets and everything else. The gold hardware shows no wear nor does the finish. A small area of very light worming (not through the finish and won't photograph) keeps this guitar from mint status. Not a single mark anywhere else. $12K is top dollar for sure but this is worth the extra $$. 6120's in this condition simply don't come up that often
