One of the most iconic Gretsch models, the 6122 Chet Aktins Country Gentleman made its debut in 1957. Between 1957 and 1961, the F-holes on the body varied with some examples using simulated painted-on F-holes, some using simulated inlaid plastic F-holes, and others have actual open F-holes. By 1961, the model switched to a double cutaway and most F-holes were of the painted-on variety. Like the Epiphone Casino, this guitar's reputation was greatly influenced by its association with the Beatles and specifically George Harrison.
This has the amazing Supertron Pickups that blow regular Filtertron pickups away and provide you with amazing tone paired with the outstanding quality and feel of this guitar. The condition of this instrument is very good for vintage condition. It has the minor wear and tear you would expect for the year. This is something that you will have for life and will not want to
