1 Bill Lee 2 years ago Today was a NGD for me. I haven't even made a post about that yet, but I got a new 6122-1959 in the mail this afternoon. If you've followed any of my posts you'll know I have a love hate relationship with that model. Love is winning. But that's another issue. I was reading through some of the archived posts and we have documented pictures of the 6122-1959 with waffle braces. Yet some have stated their particular models do indeed have trestles. So I took this one apart tonight. It's certainly lacking waffles and appears to have the same braces my 6120-1959 LTV has. Gretsch has even added the padded pickup surrounds, which are lacking on the models pictured here in the archives of the 6122-1959 with the waffle braces. I have to say I'm happy about this. The guitar is lighter 8lbs on the nose and this is the way Chet's original would have been.
