Modifications

Pickups have been changed: TV Jones Magna'Tron neck and TV Jones Super'Tron bridge. And I've pinned the bridge, but that isn't REALLY a modification, is it...?

Unusual factory features

Nothing unusual about it, other than the color being amber maple (6120-"AM"), and it's got gold hardware.

After an airline accident with another guitar (see my 6120-60), I "needed" (a relative term) another Gretsch 6120, as I wasn't sure if the other one would "survive". Got a pretty good deal from Steve Pisani at Sam Ash Custom Guitars i NYC, after requesting info about a vintage one they had listed on gbase (that I probably couldn't have afforded anyway). I admit wasn't sure about the amber maple finish vs. "regular" sunset orange, but after receiving it I knew I bought the right guitar. Great neck, wonderful acoustic tone, fantastic guitar. The pickup combo makes it a great companion to the TVJ Classics-equipped older brother (or was it sister...?).
