"Vintage 1955 Gretsch Chet Atkins 6121 Solidbody Western
This is a SUPER RARE 1955 Gretsch Chet Atkins signature 6121 Western-themed solidbody electric guitar. This features the amazing "Cow and Cactus" inlays and is mostly original. Some info can be found at: link. This particular instrument is in very good plus/excellent condition. The only modifications are four professionally filled holes under the pickguard from extra knobs at one point, and replaced tuners. Everything else, including the frets, is original and in excellent shape. The Bigsby works well and stays in tune. The bridge pickup is quieter than the neck pickup and could be looked at. Frets show light wear. The nut width on this guitar is about 1 11/16", and this beautiful piece weighs about 7lbs 7oz. Comes with original leather strap and original hardshell case."
