One of the most striking features of the G6121-1955 is its western themed aesthetic appointments. These include the leather side-body trim accented with aged furniture tacks, as well as the stunning motifs along the rosewood fingerboard including cactus, steerheads and fences. Its vibrant tangerine finish gives this guitar a classic look, and the cream binding adds elegance and prestige.
This stunning guitar is constructed with a hollow chamber using laminated maple along with a mahogany body. Its classic hollow body design offers crisp overtones while enhancing the overall resonance of the guitar, and delivering bright tones. In addition, its hollow chamber offers a lightweight design that can be played all night long.
The DynaSonic single-coil pickup has been a Gretsch standard since the late 1940s, and was one of the first pickups to offer individually adjustable pole-pieces. DynaSonic pickups are renowned for offering that classic rockabilly tone, that many retro players love. Wound slightly different to other pickups, the DynaSonic adds more high-end sparkle and delivers shimmering highs with a rich, full bass response. These pickups are ideal for any player who specialises in delicate finger-picked rhythms and flat picked solos.
Classic Bigsby Tailpiece
Like many hollow body guitars by Gretsch, the famous Bigsby tailpiece is a common feature. Its iconic design allows players to add pitch-bending effects to their tone, whilst maintaining an accurate tuning. As well as providing a useful tool, it also adds a authentic appearance to the overall look of the G6121-1955.
Rocking Bar Bridge
The Rocking Bar Bridge is a favourite amongst Gretsch fans due to a smooth glassy tone with enhanced sustain. The updated version of the classic Gretsch Bar bridge features cone shaped post holes allowing the bar to "rock" back and forth when the Bigsby Vibrato is used.
