I bought this guitar from reverb.com in march of 2018. I already own a 1960 tennessean and a custom 1962 tennessean. They're both fantastic guitars and eventually became the guitars that I "identify" with, so I decided to round out my collection by getting a 1959 and a 1961.

A comparison of the 3 current 6119's i have can be seen here: https://www.facebook.com/TheRectors/videos/1725349590914101/
