A vintage 1959 Gretsch 6151 5-watt tube combo amp. In the sea of vintage single-ended 5-watt practice combos, this amp really stands out. It's larger cabinet makes for a warm, resonant tone that just sounds bigger than other amps in this class--including the much-lauded Tweed Champ. Aside from an new set of power supply filter caps, the amp is all original. It has been cleaned and serviced. It is fully functional and sounds fantastic.

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.
