George Harrison played this on early records. Hooked it up to a Crate amp; sounded like George's work. Fantastic guitar!!
Have played in gigging band for many years. Played everything from Strats to LPs to LP Specials and Teles. They all have their place. Always wanted a good high end Gretsch. Purchased an old '68 Single Annie from Guitar Center and have enjoyed it. Still I wanted the Filter Trons and a Bigsby. Got a Tennessee Rose 3 days ago and have not put it down. Sounds great through my Twin and my AC30. Pick on up and check it out. Try a little Sleepwalk and you will be hooked.
I was looking for something very nice when I stumbled upon my Gretsch G6119, and that's just what I found. 15 seconds of playing and I knew it would be mine. The action can actually be set low and it plays much sweeter than you might think. I can shread on it although a high G blues scale is the highest you can comfotably reach. The tone makes it all worth while and playing big pianoesque jazz chords is where this guitar is most at home. If you have the means, get one.
Over the past 20 years, the 6119 is the smoothest, most comfortable guitar I have played. I own Gibson, Fender, Martin, Gretsch and Epiphone guitars and I can tell you that this one jumps into your hands and won't let you put it down. Sounds just like Chet even though I don't play like Chet! The Bigsby is outstanding...should never be IN tune, yet it is RARELY out of tune...go figure! This is a finely crafted instrument built for playing...well conceived, well designed and well built. This is the only guitar that I've purchased new and I would have three of them if they didn't cost so much! You will not be disappointed with this instrument.
everything is great about this guitar- especially the feel and sound.. and look. I wish it werent so expensive :( im sure its worth the price.
I have always been a die-hard Gibson fan owning an SG and a Les Paul. Always coveting my friends ES335 (mid 70's) I went to the store with every intention of buying one. I played about 10 of them and none of them felt or sounded the way I wanted. I was just about to leave, when I decided to play the Gretsch just to see. It simply said...."take me big boy". For over 2 years now, I have completely enjoyed every time I play it (which is often). A fabulous instrument.
Ever since my high school years when I saw Chet, Jimmy Webster and Van Epps playing one, I have wanted a Gretsch. My new Tennessee Rose is nearly perfect. I love those filter-tron pickups. The only thing I would change is the scale legnth. It is great for big band, especially for that Brian Setzer chart.
The gretsch is the cadillac of guitars. Their sound is so amazing, you could die. And you even get compliments when it's sitting in its stand. But it is a toughy to put on the strings. It's also a pain in the behind to get up the frets. It's not made for crazy playing. It's made for the regular tough solos of George Harrison.
I still love my Fender Jimmy V , but when I'm in the mood for those really rich tones, particularly when playing Rock - a - Billy, this Gretsch is a dream come true! This guitar arrived in my hands completely set up. The action and intonation is dead on. I play it through a variety of amp mods, but seem to feel most at home on the Fender Deluxe Reverb....it'll make you want to keep playing and playing! It's a little on the pricey side, but is well worth the money. You'll find that these Gretsch's are very unique guitars, I've never heard a copy that could even come close.
I love the shape, sound, and feel of this guitar. It's a beatles replica for the ages.
