Modern Gretsch Guitars

6119 Advice

1

Looking to buy my first Gretsch and I think I’ve settled in a 6119. Sure would love some advice on which one. Particularly interested in what years and models to consider and which ones to avoid. Thanks for your consideration!

There are versions with Hilotrons, Filtertrons, or Powertrons, fake or real f-holes. You can't go wrong with any version. I would recommend you go 2004 or newer. When Fender took over distribution in '04, the specs got more vintage correct and the electronics upgraded. I have an '05 Hilotron version and love it.
