Great quality versatile instrument

Honest Charles, 14.02.2018
I was looking for Gretsch 6120 for some time and considered at first SSLVO. However after doing a lot of research in the internet I decided to go for RHH model since it has the tonepost and the top should be more "free" in a traditional way with more emphasis on mids (as opposed to the trestle bracing in SSLVO). The looks of the pre 59 neck was also appealing :)

I wanted a versatile guitar I could use playing many different styles though I primarily bought it to play rockabilly. I have to say that it really is very versatile and can successfully replace my strat (plus add the twang) on many gigs although filtertrons are somewhat fatter sounding obviously. I has really comfortable neck, though I'm used to having fatter necks - this one is medium in my oppinion. I don't have any serious tuning issues with moderate use of bigsby. Of course a really extensive use of bigsby makes it go out of tune but I guess it's the issue with all of them.

I was little concerned about feedback (am playing usually with open back 18w tube combo amp), but so far haven't had problems with that. Of course it depends a little on your positioning regarding the amp.

After two weeks of playing at home plus three gigs it already has started to open up nicely though it was very promising right out of the box.

The setup on this guitar was really well done and the guitar was almost in tune when I received it. The workmanship is also top notch. I own a few custom shop Fenders and Gibsons, the workmanship and setup quality right out of box hasn't been so good with none of them. This is not my first 6120, about ten years ago I owned one with dynasonic picups from the end of the nineties (also made in Japan) but I have to say this one is superior in almost every aspect - sound, sustain, workmanship, feedback resistance...

All in all it is a really very good quality and versatile instrument. Thank You Gretch, thank You Thomann!

A master room will be true ...!

Axel aus M., 21.03.2011
To own an instrument is something special. Of course it is like everything else in life, but this Gretsch fits my taste: Gorgeous head plate, Sperzel tuners, 50 's tremolo arm, the beautiful fingerboard inlays, the "G-Brand" the magnificent Western maple stain paint After light incidence one again and again into the spell can pull, beautiful cream colored bindings ... and of course the fantastic TV-Jones PU'S. I still have a 6120TM from 1994 and in between are worlds - ie, not one is better than the other, but I really have 2 different instruments that seem to be the same at first glance. The body is a bit thicker, but the overall size is wonderfully handy. A real player feel is spreading. The pickguard is transparent in my opinion is not so valuable, I just exchange it or you paint it back to taste.

The only problem before I praise this really great guitar over the green clover is the bridge: the intonation can be adjusted well, but the string position despite the high setting remains high, or the disturbing "buzzer". Do not see both at this price class. I've put on a Gretsch Rockin Bar Bridge (note the matching holes for the pins!) - and I've got an indescribable great feeling ...! Stability, variety in the sound - from jazzig, over bluesig ... from country twang to the "Brett" ... and of course real 50's Rockabilly Sounds ... a dream!

All in all, it's an indescribably beautiful instrument that does not really show the photos, it surrounds the player with a sense of the value that I have experienced with hardly any other guitar, the "equipment items" are the more expensive Brian Setzer Hot Rod Seie Similiar ... Almost makellose processing, breathtaking! It's a value creation, a love, a Gretsch ... !!

ADDITIONAL 2012:
Meanwhile I have the Gretsch longer in use and must realize that the so highly rated TV Jones PU's the Gretsch filtertron can not reach the water. The TV'S sounded pressureless and thin in comparison. Only at extreme volume really good. Something was always missing .... I have therefore mounted filter trims and must say: Now it sounds bold, bell-like, clear and defined with the right pinch "Bumms" as this is for a guitar of this magnitude! I also replaced the bridge with a Rollerbridge. Now it is a perfect combination with outstanding playability and a legendary sound - DEM Gretsch Sound!
