Freshly set up in-house by our esteemed Guitar Tech, this '59 Country Gent is dialed in and ready for some Chet-style pickin'. Comes with original hard shell case. See below for more details and specifications.


Inspired by the original CGP (Certified Guitar Player), Chet Atkins, this Country Gentleman is more than able to keep up with the most fleet-fingered guitarist. Packed with the sound, style and features that made the original a legend, the '59 Gent provides highly responsive, amazingly articulate sound.

A pair of TV Jones® pickups - a Super'Tron Classic Plus bridge pickup and Super'Tron neck pickup - responds to every stroke with defined, eloquent tone. The modified control layout features an individual bridge pickup volume, and master volume and tone controls, allowing you to create countless tonal variations. Add the new Gretsch "Squeezebox" capacitors and you get incredibly silky vintage high end. The standard "U"-shaped maple neck with 1.75" nut bears a 12"-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 vintage-style small frets and is a picker's dream. A pinned rocking bar bridge works with the Bigsby® B6GWVT vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the vintage-style genuine bone nut lets the strings slide freely without binding in the slots.

All of the '59 Gent's classic features are here - laminated 5-ply figured maple top with painted F-holes, "wire" vibrato arm, gold G-arrow control knobs, aged white binding with black purfling, gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, aged pearloid thumbnail inlays, gold vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo and gold Grover® Imperial™ tuning machines with 'butterbean' buttons. A truly classic instrument with refined style and sound, the G6122T-59 Vintage Select Edition '59 Chet Atkins® Country Gentleman® Hollow Body with Bigsby® is a fine addition to any guitarist's collection.
