Dynamic, expressive feel from High Sensitive Filter'Tron pickups

A big part of the classic sound of the G6122-12 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman 12-string lies in its High Sensitive Filter'Tron pickups, which can serve up the sweet chime of single-coil pickups without the buzz and hum. And while they have impressive spank and sparkle, these pickups also give you the warmer tone and higher output that Filter'Tron pickups are known for.

A Gretsch Like Chet's

Chet Atkins was a country legend whose unique playing style was often imitated but never duplicated. Nicknamed "Mr. Guitar," Chet was almost as famous for designing guitars with Gretsch as he was for his complex and unmistakable playing style. The Chet Atkins hollowbody is a spot-on re-creation of the classic hollowbody guitars Chet made famous in the '50s and '60s.

  • 12-string hollowbody guitar with a gorgeous Amber Stain finish
  • Parallel tone bar bracing for enhanced sustain and note definition
  • High-sensitivity Filter 'Tron pickups for timeless tone
