This is a very cool and extremely rare Gretsch 6120 that was made in Brooklyn in 1955. This example is from the first batch of 100 6120s and Roundups and has the earliest features - 21 frets and 7 inlays. It also has the fixed arm bigsby, full cows and catcus motif, G-brand, and dearmond dynasonic pickups. The guitar is original except for the tuners, and a refret. Also, the bigsby was plated gold a long time ago. Aside from that the guitar is in very good shape for its age. It plays and sounds great. It has been pro-setup and needs nothing. It comes with the original cowboy case and western tooled strap.
