Gretsch USA Masterbuilt G6120T-59 FMT Closet Classic, Orange

This Gretsch USA Masterbuilt G6120T-59 FMT Closet Classic in Orange is more than an electric guitar - it’s a work of art. Specially made to order and personally crafted by Master Builder Stephen Stern, this 1959 Chet Atkins model perfectly captures the timeless charm and captivating tone of a prized vintage Gretsch.

Peerless Craftsmanship

At the heart of this Gretsch G6120T-59’s natural voice is its period-correct construction and hand-selected tonewoods. The Gretsch G6120T-59’s hollow body, which is based on the classic '59 6120 model, delivers the brightness, resonance and ample sustain that Maple is renowned for. The 1959-style Trestle bracing connects the top and back of the body The body’s gorgeous quilted Maple top enhances this Gretsch G6120T-59’s elegant and sophisticated look. The Plain Grain Maple neck has been sculpted to an old-school “V” profile, imparting a comfortable hand-feel that’s well-suited to “thumb-over” playing styles. The buttery-smooth Ebony fretboard is topped with Medium Jumbo frets for effortless bending and vibrato.

That Great Gretsch Sound

This Gretsch G6120T-59 has been equipped with a pair of dynamic and articulate TV Jones Classic pickups. These premium pickups are meticulous recreations of the original Filter’Tron, an iconic design that is renowned for its distinctive twang and growl. Like the original Filter’Tron, the TV Jones Classic pickups strike a beautiful balance between the bright chime of a Fender-style single-coil and the thick warmth of a Gibson-style humbucker. The versatile and player-oriented control layout includes a 3-way pickup selector, tone switch, individual volumes for the neck and bridge and a master volume, allowing you to quickly conjure up a wide range of inspiring tones.

Vintage Charm

Stephen Stern has given this Gretsch G6120T-59 the Closet Classic relic treatment, which imbues the guitar an endearing vintage charm. Whilst there are no signs of playing wear, the mild checks to the Vintage Orange finish, the slightly oxidised hardware, discoloured plastic and minor surface scratches are subtle indications of its age. It’s as if this guitar was built all the way back in 1959 and left in its case over the decades.

Modern Performance

Completing this Gretsch USA Masterbuilt G6120T-59’s impressive spec is its Grover Sta-Tite tuners and Gretsch-branded Bigsby bridge, which ensure rock-solid tuning stability and a smooth vibrato action. With this guitar you have the tone, feel and look of a vintage Gretsch with the reliability and performance of a modern one - perfect for when you want that authentic “Great Gretsch Sound” live or in the studio.

Little can compare to a masterbuilt Gretsch instrument and this particular example is a prime showcase of Stephen Stern’s astounding craftsmanship. If you’re looking to add a Gretsch hollowbody to your collection that stands out from the rest, this G6120T-59 is well worth your attention.
