    I bought this beauty yesterday. I sold my 6120 DSW about 5 years ago and regretted it almost immediately. I patiently waited for another to come up for sale locally. It didn't really matter if it had the western appointments or not.
    Finally this 6120 DSV appeared at a reasonable price on our local Craigslist and I got it for an even better price with my offer.
    It is a 2008 anniversary year guitar in almost new condition. The bonus is it came with the original case plus a new Cowboy case. When I put the guitar in the Cowboy case to bring it home he said that is the first time the guitar has been in that case. Why someone would buy the case and not use it is a mystery. 20200807_165511.jpg 20200807_165534.jpg

    Awesome. Yea, a cowboy case would make a great bed for a cowboy cat.

    Great guitar. I have a 2006 6120 DSV. It was one of my first Gretsch and still one of my favorites. Enjoy!

    I agree the Cowboy case is heavy but nice looking. I will likely be selling it.

    Congrats. I’ve always liked the non standard black case. But one of the two would have to go and I suppose you’d recoup more money keeping the black one.

    Let’s see another picture of that beauty too!

    I have had a few members expressing interest in the Cowboy case. I live near Vancouver B.C. Canada so I think shipping to the USA may be pretty expensive. We usually winter in Arizona and shipping from that location would be more reasonable. Unfortunately our trip south may be postponed due to Covid.

    My first 6120 was a 2008 DSV but it was stolen in a burglary.
    Never found another for sale :(
