Vintage Gretsch Guitars

Tenny depths

1

Were there 3 or 2?

Meaning was the transitional 6113 model same as the original single Filtertron model?

Or did each version have its own body depth?

Yeah at least 3 depths, 2 3/4" and 2 1/2" on filtertron models, early hilotron was deeper than the normal hilo depth

2.25" for the 6113. There's one on Garysguitars. White button Waverlys, no neck binding, and the oversize unbound faux f-holes. There's another one there just like it he identifies as a "6119." But then again, one of his descriptions mentions the DeArmond Hilotron....

Thanks for the info. I don't look at Gary stuff, really. Still a 6113 is sort of a cool thing

Four depths in all. The original FilterTron ones went from 2 3/4" to 2 1/2" to 2 1/4" deep. Then there was the 6113 which was also 2 1/4" deep. Finally the HiloTron 6119 at about 1 7/8" deep.
