The Gretsch G6122 Country Gentleman was made in the USA and is named after an old Chet Atkins tune. I'm not sure the exact number of frets, but it is over twenty. It has two humbucking pick ups and two pick up switch selectors as well as tone and volume knobs. It also has a Bigsby type whammy bar. I don't know what the neck is made out of but it feels great overall and is easy to play. It is a hollow body guitar which makes for its unique sound.


Overall, the Country Gentleman is easy play and has a great feel to it. It is great for playing both lead and rhythm guitar as it is easy to play all around the neck. It isn't too heavy, since is it a hollow body, and has an awesome look to it. It is easy to get a nice sound from this, as the inherent sound is full and clear.


The Gretsch Country Gentleman has a sound of its own that is great for all types of music. It is especially great for jazz, country, and pop. It also works for certain types of rock, but its specialty lies in the previously mentioned genres. I usually use this with a Fender amplifier and generally only use the clean sound without any distortion. The hollow body figure makes for an awesome electric guitar sound.


I've been using the Gretsch G6122 Country Gentleman for a while, as this guitar has been in my family for a number of years. It is one of my favorite guitars to play and has a great sound to it. The look and shape of the guitar is absolutely awesome and it plays with ease. Overall, the Gretsch Country Gentleman is a classic guitar that every guitar play should try at least once.
