1 sascha 1 year ago I recently bought a 1993 6120-60. It has some issues but I can live with that so far and I rarely played a Gretsch without any. Very often if the built quality was perfect it sounded boring. On the other hand I played some others with minor flaws that sounded great. Although I love what I call 'character' the inconsistence drives me crazy.Back to the 6120-60. Ed's book says they were introduced in 1992 but I never saw a '93 serial. So I guess mine is a quite early one. The book also says besides some non-exact features it's got the 2.5" body. Mine has the regular 2.75. I can't tell how many plys the body has; I'll post a pic. Fingerboard radius should be 12". Nope, a perfect 9.5" which suits me great. Only downside: All my Tru-Arcs are 12" and I'd like to put one of those on.The guitar has no kerfing inside. Which brings me to the biggest issue: It came all the way from Japan (that's a long way to Europe with some major climate distinctions) and has got weird hairline cracks in the finish along the whole (!) body binding. Nothing in the sensitive neck heel area or the neck. I can't get this in a photo but you can see it up-close and feel it. Should I worry?Then it's got the neck hump issue around the frets where the neck meets the body. I hope I can set that up to make it playable without any obstacles.So far that might not sound very mouth-watering. But apart from looking classy and having a great neck size and shape (round and not as thin as many others) it simply sounds fantastic, both unplugged and amplified. The stock ceramic Filters are in no way muddy or anything as you sometimes hear. They are clear, transparent with enough meat in the midrange, sparkling highs and tight lows.I have a pair of original 1959 Filtertrons I was planning to put in but I'm not so sure now.If this guitar was built well my guitar world would be perfect for a while. But it ain't. This drives me crazy.
