Take the Stage With This Iconic Guitar

The Gretsch G6120 Eddie Cochran Signature hollowbody electric guitar is based on the distinct and highly-modified instrument that powered Eddie's groundbreaking rock 'n' roll and rockabilly style. The three-ply maple body is pure Gretsch quality, with parallel bracing and double-bound "F" holes, and of course a Bigsby B6GBVF tailpiece. Distinct to the G6120 Eddie Cochran Signature, though, is the special "open" internal body design for exceptionally huge tones with rich harmonics. You also get Eddie's unique combination of DynaSonic and Lindy Fralin "dog ear" single-coil pickups for that distinctive rock tone. If you want classic Gretsch playability with a unique sound, you'll love the Gretsch G6120 Eddie Cochran Signature hollowbody.

The Gretsch G6120 commemorates Eddie Cochran's short but iconic career as a pioneer of rock 'n' roll and rockabilly. The G6120 combines classic Gretsch playability with Eddie's distinctive modifications for a truly unique instrument.

Legendary construction:

You'll find classic Gretsch construction in the G6120, like parallel bracing for maximum tone. The G6120 also features a special "open" internal body design, increasing your resonance and sustain even more.

Dual single-coil pickups:

The Lindy Fralin "dog ear" gives you rich and powerful midrange response, with the bite only a single-coil can provide.

6120 - little known Pete Townsend Favorite

What is little known about the 6120 is that it was the guitar that Pete Townsend of The Who recorded Who's Next (and the subsequent album) in the studio. He didn't use it in concert, partially to keep it pristine and because it couldn't stay in tune with his antics. It was/is his favorite guitar and was given to him along with a volume pedal and amp by Joe Walsh. He hated it at first look, but was hooked upon playing it. Listen to Who's Next (arguably the greatest rock album ever - that is a Gretsch 6120.) Nuff said

Better than my 60's Gretsch.

I have owned this Gretsch for about 2 years now and I am still blown away very time I pick it up. This is my third Gretsch and the one I will never part with. Thank you Sweet Water!!!Next I will order a Country gentleman. I have owned one and can't wait to try it.
