One thing I like about my '59 RI is how delightfully light it is.
I cant say that this is true for my 1959RI 6119. It is much heavier than my ex- original 1961 model.
I've seen some with the dowel/cap on the side of the neck and the heel is quite a ways up on the body. These bodies also look weird... They are the 2-pickup 6119 I think. That parallel bracing body might as well have been meant for a 2-pickup body. Who knows what Gretsch was doing...
Yes, I remember that the dovel was on the side on this one.
+1. That's my favorite color on a 6120. Bordering on brown, and I do like a brown guitar.
I have owned 3 prolines: 6128TCG, 6136T, 6118T and the clipper had the best feeling, most comfortable neck, hands down!
Always one to help where help is needed. Send them my way, I have a burn barrel out back and live in the boondocks. I'll even send you a picture of a fire, just to prove my integrity in this matter.
Of course mate which do u want? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
...at least the good money that I got for it solaced my bleeding heart.
Here’s my mid-60s Corvette I’m refretting and refinishing. TV Classics just for the photo op
Forgive my ignorance, but what pups will you be installing? The originals?
1960 6119. Great guitar.
Sorry for the funky photo layout. No idea.
This poor thing was in need of much TLC, and I contemplated getting a vintage set of Hilos. But things being what they are, and this strictly being a player grade instrument, I decided to go with TV-HTs.
Interesting! That looks like a rosewood fretboard, correct? And no Chet Atkins on the pickguard. And an older Bigsby before the Gretsch ones appeared in '59.
What a wonderful place!
Get this baby on the road again!!!!
That sure is purty!
