An Iconic Design

The iconic 6120 model is one of the most widely heard Gretsch instruments to date, and the G6120T-55GE stays true to the original design and astounding classic aesthetics with modifications for today's player.
Laminated Maple Body

TV Jones T-Armond Pickups
For added volume, the Gretsch G6120T-55GE is equipped with a pair of TV Jones® T-Armond single-coil pickups, which deliver a multi-dimensional tone with plenty of articulate detail. Both pickups are equipped with large alnico cylinder magnets and very thin magnet wire, producing a full-bodied harmonic tone.

In addition, the new Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil capacitors offer an incredibly smooth taper and silky vintage high end.
