Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 1966 Gretsch Double Anniversary model 6117, upgraded to 6120 specs and complete with a hardshell case. This soulful and honestly played vintage Gretsch retains its original two-tone Sunburst nitro lacquer finish, outfitted with a Bigsby B6G vibrato and matching gold-plated Bigsby bridge, TV Jones Filter'Tron humbuckers, and Grover Rotomatic tuners with the distinctive paddle buttons used on vintage Gretsch instruments.

Tonewoods include the fully hollow maple body, maple neck and bound rosewood fretboard with thumbnail inlay, yielding an acoustic tone with a rich, lively bark and excellent note attack. Plugged in, this 6117 has a broad sonic range via the upgraded pair of TV Jones Filter’Tron humbuckers. The Classic/Classic Plus pairing is a mainstay of TV Jones' lineup, offering a punchy, sparkling bridge position sound that has plenty of muscle and breadth. The neck pickup is fat and smooth, with a thickness and growl that retains enough clarity for complex chording. This Gretsch Double Anniversary has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 roundwound strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
