1955 Gretsch 6121 First Batch Cowboy Case

1955 Gretsch 6121 First Batch Cowboy Case

Welcome to JTKM STUDIO.


Here we have to offer a stunning 1955 Gretsch 6121 complete with its original white cowboy case.  If that isn’t rare enough for you, this one just so happens to be a first batch example!  We can now top that off with the fact that this Gretsch is 100% minus an excellent and probably much needed re-fret.  


This one plays, feels and sounds unreal. We cannot stress that enough! As always, we will let the photos do most of the talking, this one genuinely is a masterpiece.


Full western features throughout; the cows are back and those cacti. Adding in the white cowboy case with the western details really finishes the job off nicely. Gold hardware throughout, DeArmond single coil pickups which are just amazing, fixed arm bigsby with aluminium compensated bridge, open-back tuners (all original and working perfectly), signpost detailed pickguard and expected 24.5” scale length.  The one has a beautiful Brazilian Rosewood fretboard and western detailed block position markers.  You will struggle to find another one available, and if you do there is no guarantee it actually plays.


Most importantly in terms of collectability, this one is free from the deadly Gretsch Syndrome. That means no rotting binding and no neck-joint issues. The neck-joint is rock solid and issue free. The action is low and there is plenty of liffe left for the bridge/neck angle for further adjustment.  The russ rod works fine.  This one is about as good as it gets Gretsch folk!


Please note that the strap, cloth and string set are not included in the sale. 


There you have it, yet another masterpiece here at JTKM STUDIO.
