    And more details on the official site: https://www.gretschguitars.com/gear/new

    Edit: Huh, new filtertrons on the new Tennessee Rose: "The all-new FT-67 Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups were designed to capture authentic vintage Gretsch voicing but with a more well-rounded tone for modern playing styles. This powerful pair of pickups provide open and pristine top-end chime, glassy midrange, robust low end and balanced harmonics for tone that blends seamlessly with other instruments"

    The 6120TG-DS players edition looks pretty slick. Nice that they went with a darker, more vintage looking orange stain. Also happy to see locking tuners but with vintage style buttons so it looks period correct from the front.

    Summer NAMM is next week here in Nashville. I'm guessing they'll have many of these new models on display. If I can make it down there I will play as many as I can, take some pictures and report back!

    Ok so I want:

    But would switch the pickguard for a brown one, always wanted a white and black/charcoal/brown annie and with all the PE stuff thats awesome and it's a 2.5in body with rolled fret board edges oh man, AND a 'V' cut bigsby, that's it I'm selling a Kidney.

    The 6120DS looks awesome in the round up orange, awesome to see the electrotone body Tennie, and so cool to see the different colours on the prolines especially the blue and gold G6120 as I thought the Pre-FMIC blue burst 6120 was just stunning.

    I agree, it would be cool to see a single cut firebird that isn't a players series.

    The same, yet different? I will be glad to learn more about the FT-67 pickup. Remembering that '67 was the year when Baldwin acquired Gretsch, I wonder if the name suggests a Baldwin-era tone, as "Black Top Filter'Tron" suggests.

    This LH one in Gunmetal or Torino Green is cool, but not new in fact...

    No G2420LH, nor 2210LH in the Streamliner range... Too bad... :oops:

    A+!

    Thanks for the post. I actually didn’t realize it was almost Summer NAMM.

    I know Falcons and 6120’s usually get most of the attention. Both those new G6118’s are dreamy. Possibly on my list for early next year if things work out right.
