Ah, that's right. I think I was mixing them up with the player's edition pro lines.
Truly one of the most baffling decisions in current Gretsch history.
Gretsch G6119TG-62RW-LTD '62 Rosewood Tenny
It's hard to tell from images, but I read at the Gretsch site that the F holes are simulated which might be a deal breaker for me. I was also made an offer of 10% discount and no sales tax, so I'm thinking about it, haha!
This is the best picture I found. The shadow next to the pickguard give away that the f-holes are truly not there.
One either appreciates and likes the Electrotone body, or not.
I love the Gretsch oversized "f" holes. I also love the sound and vibe that the Electrotone body offers.
Does your G6122-58/Gent have more depth than your G6120?
Both the same depth. Don't know why Gretsch went with a full depth body on the -58, but they did.
Still love it.
I agree and like the Players Edition models as such. But I’m not so sure a radical offset is the answer. The Billy Bo sort of fills that void. They should bring in an Electromatic version IMO.
Still waiting on a Caddy green 1955 Dyna Country Club.
Don't know why though,i haven't bought a new guitar in years.But it would be nice to know there were some more out there for future used buys!
I recall Duane Eddy And Brian Setzer asked Gretsch to remake their signature models with more depth. I am guessing that you like a slimmer depth?
Only because the original -58's were thinner bodies, that's all.
Perfectly happy with the deeper body. Wonderful Electrotone sound.
Probably should add this comment in the rat rod thread but anyway, both my hollowbodies are 2.75' wide and I have measured both of them and they are exactly that and that's measured on the sides, not in the arch, so going off that I would say gretsch take there measurements on the side, and as I mentioned a few times in other threads I am near certain the rat rods did come in a 2.25' on the very first models launched as I remember reading it on the gretsch website a few days after they brought them out for sale, since then it has changed to 2.5'
Totally agree with everything here, the players addition are great for the modern player with features but stick to the traditional look which is the best of both worlds IMO, and yes I am so wanting to see an electromatic billy-bo, these would sell so well I reckon.
I wonder if George Harrison's use of a Gretsch Tennessean and a rosewood Fender Telecaster had any impact on Gretsch's decision to make a rosewood Gretsch Tennessean?
I thought there was this big shortage on rosewood or something, now entire guitars are made from it?
I think the great Rosewood saga of 2019 is over.
Everything comes in rosewood now. Rosewood fingerboards, necks, bodys.
Me.. I'm a maple and ebony guy
I remember that era from a few years ago. I guess it has passed?
There's a huge difference between Brazilian rosewood and present day Indian Rosewood.
I'm not talking about the tone that acoustic guys debate about.
One's old/rare/very pricey. One's new/available/reasonable cost.
Not even going into the restrictions/bans etc.
I can only imagine the cost of a solid Brazilian rosewood Tele!
Why are all the Mexican fenders pao ferro now?
Luckily holes are easier to install than remove.
Still no Electromatic Billy Bo... Sigh...
On the other hand, I love that gold '89 Sparkle Jet. And that koa penguin is AWESOME!!!
