    Looking to sell my 2007 6121 FTW. For those who don't know it was a limited run (for Sam Ash) 6121 with TV Jones Filtertron pickups. Has the western trim and cowboy case. Came with two Bigsby arms (both included.)
    Asking $2500.
    It is in beautiful shape with only the faintest nicks in the finish near the tuning pegs (tried to show it in the pics.)

    No joke it is the best playing guitar I've ever owned.

    Thanks.
    Suppose I should revise to say "O.B.O."

    Sorry to hear you’re selling. Great looker. GLWTS. Wasn’t there a knotty pine version too?

    Knotty Pine was a G6131. Specs were a little different.

    I have a G6121W. My favorite Gretsch.

    Beautiful. Is that a rosewood board, and do you have the weight?

    Yes, rosewood fingerboard. I guess because it was a FSR (Factory Special Run) I’ve never been able to find an official spec sheet for this model, but it’s always been my understanding it has the same specs as the 6121-1955 with the following mods:

    Filtertron pickups, Adjustomatic bridge and Bigsby B3CBVN tailpiece.

    (I can dig up the specs for the G6121-1955 if anyone is interested.)

    LOVE this model with Filtertrons! Anyone driving up to Toronto?? The rosewood fretboard means a CITES permit is needed to ship cross border.
