This guitar has a 59’ trestle bracing. I clearly see it through the f-holes!
I have written to both to Fender and Fred Gretsch and asked them to update the feature description on their product web page since 2014 but they never have!

The Guitar itself has no cool story. It is my third pro-line Gretsch! The first I purchased in 2002 was a G6122-1959 Nashville Classic (The name at the time I purchased it). In 2008 I brought it to a luthier to file the frets since I unfortunately kept the guitar in a dry environment for long periods of time. He scrapped the binding so I obliged him to buy it! Then I replaced it with Black 6120 the same year and I really loved that guitar! I had to sell it after some financial hardships! In 2014, I finally bought my 6117T-HT. I paid it $1870 CDN (before tax brand new in the box).
