    Its just about perfect for appointments but the colour and pickguard dont quite do it for me. Reminds me a bit of the superchet or a Gibson country gent. But i bet it sounds and feels awesome!

    Well I have s G6120 FTW. You could think of it as a Brian Setzer meets RHH. It has the western appointments, trestle bracing, sperzel locking tuners and strap locks. It came with HS Filtertrons which I replaced with TV Jones Classics. There were only 49 of these made, rumor is that it was destined to be the RHH but Jim Heath wanted a tone post and some other changes.
    I owned this guitar as well as an SSLVO and a 59 LTV and compared the three. I settled for the FTW and sold the other two, both were great guitars.
    Here it is pictured third from the right.

    Stumbled on to this picture on Gretschmafia. It’s a custom shop model. Could possibly be the ultimate 6120 in my opinion.

    Nice bit of lumber there!
    But I think I’d go falcon all the way if I was doing the falcon headstock.

    She's nice, but I agree. Love the Bird's headstock, on a bird.

    That said, to each their own.
