    I miss those 6120-DS and 6120-DSV models that were released between 2003 and whenever the Duane Eddy model was first issued. There was even a run of 20 or so black 6120-DSV models issues in the last year of production. I had one and kinds miss it. Whose got pics?

    I had the black DSV for a few months in 2015. Ended up trading it to Gruhn's in Nashville for a DSW with T-Armonds. That DSW had been previously owned by Elaine Frizzel. I found some pics on the net of her playing it. I eventually ended up trading that DSW for my current SSLVO with T-Armonds, which is a lifetime guitar for me. Love those T-Armonds mixed with trestle bracing.

    The black guitar was cool and rare, but I guess I'm just not into black guitars. Too dark of a color. I always thought they sort of disappeared on stage. Plus, my black DSV had the factory Gretsch Dynas. I vastly prefer the T-Armonds, so into the trade it went.

    DSVs were great guitars. Here's Black Betty hanging with a coupla Victoria's.

    I also have an orange DSV and a couple of Duane Eddy models, but Betty is my go-to.

    Thanks for posting the pics guys. Black Betty with that two-tone Victoria is very impressive Scott. I imagine the sound is incredible.

    Yeah, that one's been on there for a while. And at that price, it will be on there a while longer...
