    Congratulations. A Gretsch with Dynas is wonderful.
    I wonder if the Duane Eddy model sort of replaced the DSV?

    Yes, it was discontinued in 2011 to make way for the Duane Eddy signature.
    The orange has more red in it than my 6120 FTW 20200809_133701.jpg

    The Duane Eddy may have been brought in to replace the dsv. Its so similar it might have been hard to market both at the same time? This is my DSV. The only visual difference with the Duane Eddy is the the extended curved waist on the headstock and , of course the scratchplate with his signature.
    May have different internal bracing?
    Anyhow.... the DSV is a thing of wonder and beauty. I will never part with mine.

    There've been a few variations on this 6120: the 6120DS, 6120DSV, 6120DSW, and now the 6120T-55 Vintage Select. They all had the G brand except the 6120DS and the 6120DSV.
