Gretsch G6119T-62 Vintage Select 1962 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose w/Bigsby Dark Cherry Stain

The names Chet Aktins and Gretsch have become synonymous with some of the most iconic and stylish guitars ever made - this beautiful Tennessee Rose, with its large single-cut hollow laminated Maple body, aged body binding, bound f-holes, thumbnail fingerboard inlays, Bigsby tremolo, and a darker deep Cherry finish, being a prime example.

Built to the specification of the original 1962 model, the G6119T-62 is without a doubt the most authentic vintage spec'd “Tenny” produced by Gretsch to date. Pickups are a pair of classic high quality TV Jones Hilo’Tron single coils, so that classic Gretsch twang and tone is there in abundance; combine it with the Bigsby tremolo, which is now coupled with a rocking bridge to accommodate tremolo movement, and the term "Pure Gretsch" has never been so relevant.


What Gretsch say:

By any other name this guitar would still sound sweeter than honey. A throwback from the early era of rock ‘n’ roll, the G6119T-62 Vintage Select Edition '62 Tennessee Rose™ Hollow Body with Bigsby® is a solid performer with the sound and the style that have made Gretsch a household name. Highly resonant, the unique voice of this guitar cuts through any mix, standing out from the crowd with That Great Gretsch Sound!™

A pair of rich-sounding TV Jones® Hilo’Tron pickups creates broad tone with lively response, reflecting the natural voice of the guitar. Parallel tone bars connect the top and back of this guitar for authentic vintage tone. Traditional Gretsch controls—individual pickup volume controls, master volume, and the classic three-position tone switch—allow you to blend and shape the pickups’ sound, creating countless tonal variations. With the new Gretsch "Squeezebox" paper-in-oil capacitors, you get incredibly silky vintage high end. A pinned "rocking" bar bridge reacts in tandem with the Bigsby B6CVT vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the vintage-style bone nut lets the strings slide freely without binding in the slots. The standard "U"-shaped maple neck bears a 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets for a classic playing e
