    Thought I would introduce myself. A couple years ago decided to take up guitar again after 40 years. Well I still can't play for crap but have amassed "several" guitars in the mean time. Was in Sweetwater last summer to pick up a Traveler guitar and was leaving when out of the corner of my eye saw them putting some eye candy in a glass case. I went over to have a look and YES, a Chet Atkins Country Gentlemen with no miles on it, Dickered for a minute and now it is in the music room. They never even got a chance to relock the case,

    What a slippery slope it is....

    Good eye. I missed the 6120 on my first look. Maybe Gretsch could do something to make it stand out more:D.

    Received the pot cleaning kit from Stew Mac yesterday so was going to clean the pots on the Setzer when I discovered the cap would only fit the 3 way switches. Found this forum and found out I could get better ones cheaper on eBay. Ordered them this morning. Here is a pic of the 6120 in its camo paint. 6120Small.jpg
