Built to the specs the original 1962 Tennessean model, the G6119T-62 is by far the most authentic vintage spec “Tenny” ever offered by Gretsch! They’ve added aged body binding and a darker cherry finish. The guitar features the HiLo'Tron pickups, rocking bar bridge, and simulated F-Holes which are all 1962 period correct appointments designed in part by Chet Atkins himself. The body of a Tennessee Rose is a little smaller and thinner then the 6120 and Gent models making it a great choice for someone who does not favor a large hollow body design. The guitar is all Pro-series Gretsch with perfect playability and neck angle and classic warm tones.

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.
