A blast from the classic era of Gretsch’s storied past, the G6120T Limited Edition ’59 Nashville Single-Cut with Bigsby revisits an historic model. Vintage Gretsch tone meets modern playabilty and performance with this limited and fine Dark Cherry Stain guitar.
Dual TV Jones Ray Butts Ful-Fidelity pickups deliver pure Gretsch power and high fidelity tone with plenty of dynamics and articulation on tap. The control complement—separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup switching, three-way tone switch and master volume—allows for near-infinite tonal variations. The all-new Gretsch Squeezebox paper-in-oil caps add smooth vintage tone and silky high end while the treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down.
The vintage “V”-shaped maple neck bears a 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 vintage-style frets for a classic playing experience that works with all musical styles. 1959 trestle bracing connects the top and back of this guitar for authentic, snappy vintage tone. A pinned “rocking” bar bridge reacts in tandem with the Bigsby B6CBVF vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the polished aluminum nut lets the strings slide freely without binding in the slots.
Designed for pure tone and slick, comfortable playing feel, this guitar features the classic aesthetics Gretsch purists love—nickel G-arrow control knobs, aged white binding, durable gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, aged pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays, bound tortoise pickguard with Gretsch logo and nickel Grover Sta-Tite tuning machines. Elegant style and refined sound combine to make this Limited Edition ’59 Nashville a Gretsch aficionado’s dream guitar.

Why We Love Gretsch
Gretsch has been handcrafting guitars for over 135 years. The unique sound of the Gretsch semi-hollow body guitar has become synonymous with rockabilly music, one of the first styles of rock ‘n roll. Gretsch guitars are a favorite among musicians like Chet Atkins, Brian Setzer and George Harrison. At Cream City Music, we love Gretsch too, which is why we always have a huge selection of new, used and vintage Gretsch guitars in stock.
