This 1994 Gretsch 6120W is in excellent cosmetic condition and is set up in fantastic playing order. The frets show little wear and have loads of life left in them. This guitar plays excellent up and down the fingerboard. The tuning machines have been changed to Sperzel locking tuners (The holes from the original tuners have been filled and are still visible). These are the same type of tuning machines used on the Brian Setzer signature series Gretsch guitars and keep this guitar in rock solid tune. The Filter'Tron humbucking pickups sound dynamite and deliver that great Gretsch sound. The Western motif is super cool and gives this instrument a stand out look. I have always particularly liked Gretsch instruments built in the 1990s and consider them to be killer players. If you're looking for a big guitar that can deliver anything from rockabilly to hard rock to jazz, I definitely recommend this Gretsch.
