Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6120DC Chet Atkins Nashville Electric Guitar:

I just bought one in Oct.2010. I'm a playing musician largly jazz fusion and rock n blues. I find the Nashville a wonderfull guitar to play and the neck is superb. The ability to get feedback which I encorporate in my playing is second to none. I also own a Gibson Les Paul Custom and a Fender Telecaster which I use on stage but since I bought the Nashville, I mostly use it. I do have one complaint though, the Nashville's neck meets the body higher than I'd like and since I have the double cutaway I would like more access to the upper frets.But, all and all I feel this is a top notch guitar and wonder why more jazz musicians don't use Gretsch guitars... I recommend them!

THE ULTIMATE GRETSCH 6120

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6120DC Chet Atkins Nashville Electric Guitar:

The 6120DC is without a doubt the finest guitar I've ever owned in my 50+ years of playing. I instantly bonded with mine and seldom play any of my other guitars.I play fingerstyle in the Merle Travis/Chet Atkins style and this guitar is the perfect choice for that style of music. I have a 2008 model and mine luckily came with the TV Jones Classics pickups which nail that vintage great GRETSCH Filter'Tron tone.The thinner body of the DC along with the faux F-Holes give the guitar a very focused response that really shines when recording or cutting through the mix onstage.I do not think a better guitar is built today.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6120DC Chet Atkins Nashville Electric Guitar:

When it comes to tone, there is nothing like a Gretsch. The DC 6120 gives you better access to the higher frets, but it is still not great in hitting the high notes - a lotta wood between you and the strings. So, when i need tone in the lower register, there is nothing like it!! When working the higher realm of the fretboard, I'm prone to use my American Strat,
