Gretsch G6121-1959 Chet Atkins Solid Body - Western Maple Stain
Special Order

Sweet Solid Body Tone!

Though Gretsch is most famous for their hollowbody guitars, one shouldn't overlook their line of classic solidbodied instruments. The Chet Atkins Solid Body sports a chambered body crafted from select mahogany, a one piece "Action Flow" mahogany neck, and Gretsch "rocking" bar bridge. Electronically, the Solid Body has Filter'Tron pickups and a Bigsby B3 provides the classic vibrato sound that's synonymous with Gretsch guitars.
