[Musikmesse] Gretsch G6120 Duane Eddy
Gretsch honors Duane Eddy with the introduction of the G6120DE Duane Eddy Signature Hollow Body guitar model.
The instrument is a single-cutaway with classic styling that combines features based on Eddy's original 1957 G6120 model with modern Gretsch features.
The G6120DE’s bound single-cutaway hollow body has three-ply maple back, sides and arched top, with trestle bracing and bound oversized f holes. The three-piece bound maple neck has a brass nut, lacquer finish and slim profile based on Eddy’s original 1957 G6120, and is topped with a bound headstock. Other features include a 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium frets and hump-block pearloid inlays; dual DynaSonic single-coil pickups with three-position switching; gold plexi pickguard bearing Gretsch logo and Eddy’s signature; modern Tru-Arc bridge and Bigsby B6CBDE vibrato tailpiece with Duane Eddy-style “DE” handle and extra-long string-retainer pins; gold G-arrow control knobs and gold-plated, chrome and polished aluminum hardware; gold-plated Grover V98G Sta-Tite tuners; Dunlop Straplok system; Western Orange Stain lacquer finish; and deluxe hard shell case.
No pricing info at this point, but you can get more details from the Gretsch website.
