    There are a couple of videos out on YouTube about Duane Eddy's new signature 6120, and they seem,in a way, to contradict one another. In one, which actually shows his original standing up next to him, he says" it looks good, but believe me it's messed up", based on the context of his conversation though I think he is referencing the 1st Prototype of his signature model made by Mike Stern, rather than his actual original made in 1957. Then in the 2nd video, he says" I've still got the guitar, it's as good as it ever was" !
    Here are the videos:

    And here is a pic of him with his original :

    If you go on the other Gretsch forum there is a whole section about him, his wife is on there often and she will most likely answer you.
