Not sure why I have never owned a Gretsch before; they sound fantastic! Sustain is to die for and a great balanced tone somewhere between a single coil and humbucker. This is a very special guitar as it was a wedding present from my new wife, Suzy Starlite!
The build quality of this Japanese reissue is exceptional!
Originally launched in the mid 50's the 6120 has gone on to become legendary, played by Chet Atkins, Eddie Cochran, Neil Young, Pete Townshend and Brian Setzer to name a few.
I have been using it on gigs recently as it fits perfectly with the style of the new album, 'The Knife'.
It sounds best with the Gartone Vibrato King (an exact clone of a 3 x 10" Fender Bandmaster), early 70's Fender Bandmaster or the Germino Classic 45 and 4x12...
You will have to wait a bit to hear it recorded, but when you do, you will like it :)
