1 redrocker 8 months ago So, I've decided it’s time to let this lovely one go… the legendary “Patches”…. While I’ve loved this guitar a lot, she’s not getting much play time at all since I have two other 50’s Gretsches that I play regularly. I’m also tired of not clearing off some old debts, so after 5 (?) years of ownership I think it’s time this one found a new owner who will play it more and give it a good home.Those of you who know the history of this guitar know it’s strictly a player 6120 — a grimy-patina’d history book of hard roads, hepcats and honky-tonks. Which of course makes it a VERY fine player. On the plus side: It’s a very reliable guitar — I’ve gigged with it and played it a lot. All the issues have been sorted, so it’s ready to go. It’s from the slightly rare batch of (transitional) ’56 6120s, which came with a G brand and hump block markers. Coolness! It's hands down got the best neck of any guitar I’ve ever played. Perfect taper (at least for me) and very smooth and low action. If you like ‘50s necks you will love this one. I should also mention that the neck was beautifully reset by Curt, and it upped the playability and really improved the overall resonance and sound. It is 95% original (the bar bridge being the only non-56 feature AFAIK) The Dynasonic pickups are both strong. The bridge pickup has more bite than usual. The guitar is acoustically super-resonant, very light, yet doesn’t suffer from feed back (there’s a tone post) On the minus side: There’s that patch, oh well. Not visible from stage though. An old, messy headstock repair where a previous owner snapped it. The actual repair is holding quite well (A+), but cosmetically the job is a C+ Accepting offers here for a week or three, and then it will go up on eBay, Reverb.com, the Gear Page, etc.
