Gretsch G6122T-59GE Golden Era Edition 1959 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman with Bigsby, TV Jones, Walnut Stain, Lacquer 2401234892
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 Í59 Gent provides highly responsive, amazingly articulate sound.
A pair of TV Jones pickups„a SuperÍTron Classic Plus bridge pickup and SuperÍTron neck pickup„responds to every stroke with defined, eloquent tone. Traditional Gretsch controls, volume for each pickup, master volume and tone control, allow you to blend the pickups to create countless tonal variations. Add the new Gretsch ñSqueezeboxî paper-in-oil capacitors and you get incredibly silky vintage high end. The standard ñUî-shaped maple neck with 1.75î nut bears a 12î-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 vintage-style small frets and is a pickerÍs dream. A pinned ñrockingî 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 Í59 GentÍs classic features are here„laminated 5-ply figured maple top with painted F Holes, ñwireî vibrato arm, gold ñG Arrowî 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 ïbutterbeanÍ buttons. A truly classic instrument with refined style and sound, the Golden Era Edition 1959 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman with Bigsby is a fine addition to any guitaristÍs collection.
