You are looking at a Gretsch G6122T-62GE Golden Era Edition 1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Hollow Body Electric Guitar with Bigsby, serial number JT16123922. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 8.5 oz.)

The Gretsch Country Gentleman from 1962 is a true rock 'n' roll icon, having been made famous by the legendary George Harrison of the Beatles during the earliest days of the British Invasion. Today, Gretsch is proud to introduce the G6122T-G2GE Golden Era Edition 1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman, which faithfully captures the authentic tone, feel, vibe, and style of the versatile Golden Era Country Gentleman from Gretsch.

Made from laminated maple top, back, and sides, the sealed Country Gentleman body features parallel tone bar bracing for that unmistakable sound while simulated F-holes, a Walnut Stain finish, and aged white binding caters to the classic aesthetic. Not only does the sealed body construction deliver that timeless sound, but it also helps combat the notorious unwanted feedback that tends to occur when amplifying hollow body instruments. The comfortable 24.6"-scale Standard "U" maple neck is topped with a 12"-radius ebony 'board that features 22 vintage-style frets and zero-fret for unbelievable playability. Aged white fingerboard binding paired with Gretsch's signature aged pearloid thumbnail inlays enhance the old-school vibe of this striking re-creation.

The G6122T-62GE Golden Era Edition 1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman comes fitted with a pair of versatile TV Jones Classic pickups that faithfully reproduce all the sought-after vintage growl and classic twang of those late '50s/early '60s vintage Filter'Tron pickups. The pickups are wired through a traditional Gretsch control compliment, which includes independent volume controls for each pickup, a master volume control, and a  3-way tone switch for outstanding sonic flexibility. The Grestch "Squeezebox" paper-in-oil capacitors deliver smooth vintage trebles.

The bone nut works in tandem with the pinned "rocking" bar bridge and Bigsby B6GVT vibrato tailpiece to offer exceptional tuning stability and performance. Other legendary appointments include dual foam string mutes with red felt surroundings, a standby switch, gold "G-Arrow" control knobs, gold Grover Imperial tuning machines, and a gold vintage thick plexi pickguard that bears the Gretsch logo. Comes complete with a hardshell case.

      Being a huge Beatle fan, this guitar was on my bucket list. It has the early Beatle tones and is easy to handle. Got a better sound when I installed flat wounds.
