    Yesterday finally, I picked up my 6120 Vintage Select 55! I did some kilometers and I went to Milan from "Gino Guitars" where there is a boutique equipped with guitars with the most important names, and with a large assortment of Gibson, in short, a small paradise.
    I'm very happy.

    Finally I come home with this flaming virgin:

    What a cool guitar!


    Well vintage flamed, three-dimensional marbled flames.

    Double satisfaction :)
    Here I am immortalized by my girlfriend while in ecstasy I feel to be Cochran :D

    Double satisfaction, yes, the first is for the eyes, it is really a jewel, judge for yourself, the second is for the ears. Together with the Supro Coronado the magic begins with its sweet sound. Looking at the chick in detail, I can perceive the precision, cleanliness and objective perfection of the Japanese manufacture with which this instrument was made, by hand. I am happy to inaugurate my new purchase here with you gretsch entusiast. Let me know what you think! Here my new one and my wife :) upload_2019-6-14_17-46-30.jpeg

    stunning, the both of them, congratulations.
    Ditto for the Japanese construction, I love my new 6120 PE, my other guitars sit safely in their cases, not see the light of day,or night for that matter.

    Congratulations! Very nice. I like the flames here(i normally don’t), they’re subtle, and not PRS-in your face.

    Hello to all of you Gretsch Guys :),
    I really appreciate your comments, I am very much in love with these two guitars and very much also with the names they carry, Les and Chet who remind me for genius of two compatriots: Les as Leonardo for the inventiveness and Chet as Michelangelo for the very refined technique. There would be a third guitar in the family but it's a bit unpresentable .. This new 6120 really sounds great even with this bridge but I'm going to choose a True-Arc, I like the original aesthetics, always reading here I read about dBridge I didn't know, I sent an email to them to get more info, on their site there was no sales availability, do any of you know something more? I saw something for Tru-Arc but the info is very many and I have clear ideas only about the material,that on a shop (f-holes) I saw availability also in titanium, wow!
    I ask your experience for help, which one to choose for radius, rock or not, compresated or not? I like the Serpentune it seems to me to keep the look more original.
