Good for you!

I was hoping it wasn't a headstock/neck snap...phew...

Sweet. Are those Grover tuners, like on several '57's? There's a pic of a burst '57 in Ed Ball's 6120 Book (p.96), but that is a later serial#.

the tuners are indeed original Imperials. (We checked)

Waitaminnit.

I meant Grover Sta-tites as on Duane Eddy's, Conway Twitty's '57 Round-Up, and more than a few humpblocked '56-7 Gretsches. This has Imperials?!? (drool) Please post a few more pics. Please.

Wow! I’m looking forward to the video

Looks great! Let's hear something!

Headstock veneer is kind of grayish. Most unusual as is the guitar.

That's a gorgeous guitar; deserves a photoshoot. I wonder how a 6120 spec'd like that would sell if Gretsch offered it.

Im hoping to buy it along with 55' rancher. Hopefully in the next several weeks. The rancher had been a little boogered up but was still ok.

It will be a mega picture expose if these guitars end up in my house.
