Around 2006 Gretsch made a limited run of about 100 "Power Tennys", which were actually a bit more like a 6120 than a Tennessean. The bodies were finished in "Flagstaff Sunset" orange/red and featured '59-style trestle bracing. Other features included Schaller straplocks, Sperzel locking tuners, TV Jones PowerTron pickups, a pinned adjustomatic bridge and a B6C (V-cutout) Bigsby. A second short run was made in 2008. Aside from the serial number you can tell an '08 by the Bigsby: it will have a regular B6 instead of a B6C.
