1 senojnad 1 year ago I started a short thread Saturday..... http://gretschpages.com/for...Now that I've logged about 15 hours with it I can share more details on the "why" and "what" of this latest purchase.Background/HistoryMy first encounter with the ’55 Chet Atkins guitar was in Gretsch’s “Guitars For Moderns” catalog in 1955. That catalog was my go-to fantasy resource for day dreaming about some fabulous electric guitars I that I wished I could own. I think the ONLY electric guitars in that catalog that did NOT stir up fantasies were the ones with the “cowboy stuff” (i.e., “western appointments”) on them. At that time I was becoming an avid Chet Atkins fan. But as a growing man of 13 living in Philadelphia where we had Rock & Roll and Bandstand, I could NOT get into that “country” stuff. The QuestFast forward 6 decades…… I’ve been a humbucker/FilterTron guy for a long time. However I’ve had experiences with some single coils (Seymour Duncan Custom Shop Dynas) that I really like. Over the last 10 years (+/-) I’ve been getting GAS for a hollow body with top-of-the-line single coils. Within the Gretsch fleet the 6120T-’55 Vintage Select Chet Atkins is THE option. So I started doing Google digging. The more I watched and listened, the more the interest became a need.
