6120 Ronny Lee

The Ronny Lee is one of the more unusual Gretsch models of the 60s. Around 1962 a short run were made for Ronny Lee, who owned a music store in the Bronx. Depending on who's telling the story, it may have been 100 made, maybe 200. Maybe less. It appears there wasn't even a full production run, but instead they were dribbled out during runs of other better-known models. Whatever the total number, they are quite rare. So rare, in fact, that not enough examples have come forward to even be sure about the model number. What we do know: They appear to be based on the early 60s 6120 ElectroTone body, with dual HiLoTrons, thumbnail markers on both sides of the neck, and a rectangular rather than square "Ronny Lee model" plaque on the headstock.
