Feedback resistant with TV Jones pickups and versatile electronics.
12-string electric guitars have marked the musical landscape with their beautifully lush, naturally chorused sound. The G6122-6212 Vintage Select Edition '62 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Hollowbody 12-String brings that one-of-a-kind, authentic ‘60s style and sound into the spotlight once again. Plug one in today and enjoy a full, larger-than-life playing experience that is like no other.
TV Jones Classic pickups deliver refined, articulate tone that responds to every pick stroke or strum. Traditional Gretsch controls—including per-pickup volume controls, master volume, three-way pickup switching and a three-way tone switch—allow you to blend the pickups to create countless tonal variations, personalizing your sound. Add the new Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil capacitors and you get incredibly silky vintage high end.
The standard “U”-shaped maple neck bears a 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 frets for a memorable playing experience that works with any fret-hand style. The sealed body with simulated F Holes minimizes feedback while providing for authentically vintage hollow body tone. The pinned Adjusto-matic bridge allows you to precisely adjust the guitar’s intonation, ensuring all 12 strings play in tune along the length of the neck while the G-cutout tailpiece adds a touch of vintage style from the golden era of Gretsch.
A lush music machine, this guitar features the classic appointments Gretsch aficionados desire—laminated 3-ply maple top with painted F Holes, gold “G Arrow” control knobs, aged white binding with black purfling, gloss urethane finish, aged pearloid thumbnail inlays, gold, vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo and gold Grover Rotomatic mini tuning machines. A full-sounding guitar, the Vintage Select Edition '62 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Hollowbody 12-String is the perfect instrument to enhance your sound with open, airy chordwork.
