When I look at this one (and it`s pricetag) my heart is breaking.
I sold my 1961 6119 for EUR 2.600 a few years ago.
I think the price is a little high. Per the Blue Book, $3000 would be more reasonable for a mint condition one.
I recently noticed that a pair of pre 60ies 6119 was bought from a professional seller (if I remember it right it was Steven Rosen) for around USD 2.500 the piece by a professional buyer (forgot the name but he is active on eBay) who offered each at around 4.800 USD some months later. I think he has not sold one of them at this pricepoint, yet.
What I would love about this guitar is that it is trestle-braced. My 1961 model had the thin body without the trestle bracing and always felt a bit fragile.
Really? I thought all single FilterTron 6119s had trestle bracing, just like the thin body single cutaway 6120. That's very surprising.
If I'm honest, I'd have this over a '59 6120. Something about the simplicity. If only it hadn't had a tone switch, it'd be perfect.
I have guitar with a single TV Classic in the bridge with the modern value tone switch. It's very usable, much better than the old specs.
There's a reissue version on Reverb now for half the price.
The tone switch has no effect at all in the center position.
I bought mine for 1800 bucks and everyone at GT said I could do better...
Sorry for you but at least you sold it...I've seen them for over 3000 but they don't seem to sell.
Always drool over yours, Rich....Love this Gretsch so much!
It doesn't get any cooler than this....The perfect Gretsch IMO!
I know, but it's all about the look. Just a volume pot and a filtertron pickup, that's really all I would need.
If somebody would purpose me a swap for my ‘64 SG Special in Polar White for it, I would seriously thinking at it.
Give Willie (actually his name is Nate) a call!
they must have just gotten this guitar in. I don't remember seeing it a couple of weekends ago when Poppatwang and I were in there. however, there was a White Falcon hanging on the wall.
Yes, it just appeared on their site yesterday.
Sadly Snuffy's Malt Shop next door is closing, Brent.
Say hello to Clay.
Love my RI:
