        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119-1962HT Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

        I bought my 6119-1962HT six or seven years ago and have never looked back. This is a great pro quality instrument with a great appearance and the capability to dial in a wide range of tones for country, jazz, R&B, and pop music.

        The best thing about the 6119-1962HT is that it is easy and fun to play. It's a thinline hollow body with a 16" upper bout so it's immediately comfortable to hold. It's light because the body is hollowed out, and the top is solid so it doesn't feed back as easily as some hollow body electrics do. When the instrument is set up properly for your favorite gauge of strings, the fretboard is very easy to play. The Bigsby gives it a great vibrato effect.

        HiLoTron pickups are a lower output pickup, but they sound great and you can always turn up the volume on your amplifier if you wish. The neoclassical thumbnail fretboard markers, when you look down on them, seem to stretch all the way across the fretboard. The Bigsby, which is a good chunk of metal, does not seem to weigh the guitar down much, the guitar still has a very light weight feel to it.

        Gretsches are very popular for Country and Western music, and a lot of Pop guitar players in the 60's used the 6119. And of course Chet Atkins and George Harrison both played the 6119. If you play Country and Western, R&B, Jazz, or Pop music you should definitely try one out.

        Bottom line: I love mine.

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119-1962HT Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

          Compared to my G6120, the G6119=1962HT with HiLo'Tron pickups sounds sharper (almost fender sounding) to my ear.
          It's a nice change from the humbuckers.
          I did retrofit the Bigsby with the "Chet" style wire arm which I prefer.

          Vintage and Still Rockin'

          By Steven David

          from Chelmsford, MA

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119-1962HT Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

          Let me first start off by saying that I gave the "Features" category a 2.5 only because the bridge pickup on mine does not work. My father owns a 1963 Chet Atkins Tennessean of which I play on a regular basis. It's my main axe of which I play both lead and rhythm guitar with.First, the finish and look of this guitar is simply phenomenal. EVERYBODY who has seen me play this guitar has commented on it or given it a look of awe. It has a vintage look to it in general as a guitar.Second, it feels rather light (because it's hollow on the inside), despite the fact that it's not classified as a hollow body guitar.Finally, the sound. Just wow. WOW. I know that Gretsch guitars are generally used for country, and you can tell in the clean sounds, but the sounds that this thing can make are just amazing. Being a huge Beatles fan, this guitar plays especially well for that. It handles gain very well, has a slight jangle like a Rickenbacker or Strat, but has an incredibly full sound to it. The tone switch works like magic, and the distorted sound with the tone down is just great.As I previously stated, the neck pickup on mine is the only one working, but the sounds it can make are just amazing. The clean sounds are powerful and defined, and the distorted sounds are rockin'. Surprisingly jangly for a neck pickup, which is great. One pickup handles it all for me, but don't take my word for it. You gotta try one out for yourself. It's like magic.

          Amazing for some players

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119-1962HT Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

          This is a wonderful guitar if you play mellow country, jazz or rock with a light touch. If you're a rocker like me, it may not suit your needs. The floating bridge causes tuning problems and the pickups have very low output. But this guitar plays incredibly and produces that woody twangy Gretsch tone that is the signature of their brand. Lots of tone options via the controls and the bigsby adds a cool sound vibe and look. The cheap quality of the tuners knocked it down from a perfect 5. Install a set of TV Jones, set the bridge and replace the tuners for an out of this world guitar that can't be beat.

          True Gretsch Sound

          By guitarchris76

          from Boston, MA

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119-1962HT Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

          This is one great guitar. The fit and finish playability and sound are all what you would expect from Gretsch. This guitar can give you great jazz, blues and rock and roll sounds that are nothing short of inspiring. My only complaint is that the pickups output is a little on the low side. I may get some TV Jones HT replacements but am hesitating only because the guitar does sound great as is regardless of the output. I have 10 other guitars which include high end Fender's and Gibson's as well as some custom shop stuff, and this is right up there with the those guitars. If you really want "That Great Gretsch Sound" you do not need to look any further. Buy this guitar!!!!

          amazing

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119-1962HT Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

          This guitar is amazing. The "Tv Jones Hilo-tron pickups are quiet and can help play anything from smooth jazz to high output distortion rock. Also, if you are a Beatles fan, pick this up because it is the exact one George Harrison played so many times. The fret board is very fast, easy to maneuever on, and the bigsby is quality. I have never had to retune the guitar after using the tremelo. It is very nice. Also, the killswitch knob is a nice feature when taking a break from playing. The action is flawless with the nice archtop adjustable bridge, and the guitar truly sounds great if the bridge pickup is hot-roded. You will not be disappointed with this beauty.

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119-1962HT Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

          Got my Tennessee Rose last October. I was very surprised when it arrived.Everything was already set and it was ready to play right out of the hard shell case. I played a few early Beatle songs acoustically and then hooked it up to my Yamaha Mixer and IPOD to play along with a few Beatles SongsI kid you not, my Tennessee Rose sounded exactly like the Gretsch George Harrison used for their early recordings.I am thrilled to own a guitar that has such an amazing musical heritage and it was great to get a MINT, PERFECT, CLEAN guitar with no imperfections, scratches or finger prints on it.This is a classic guitar with that distinctive Gretsch tone/sound.
