Period-correct 12-string w/TV Jones Pickups

The Gretsch G6122-6212GE Vintage Select 1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman 12-string hollowbody electric guitar captures the essence of classic Gretsch tone and style with a beautifully lush, naturally chorused sound. Its arched maple body yields a deliciously open snap that's beautifully enhanced by a pair of vintage-voiced TV Jones Classic humbuckers. The result is a refined, articulate tone and full, larger-than-life playing experience. This guitar's standard U-shaped maple neck and 12"-radius ebony fingerboard is enormously comfortable, regardless of your fret-hand style. The Gretsch G6122-6212GE Vintage Select 1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman 12-string hollowbody electric guitar belongs in every discriminating guitarist's collection.

Gretsch G6122-6212GE Hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Arched maple body provides your tone with excellent definition
  • TV Jones Classic pickups deliver timeless Gretsch tone
  • Two volume controls + one tone control = exceptional sonic flexibility
Arched maple body provides your tone with excellent definition

Maple has to be one of the most lively, bright, and colorful tonewoods out there, which is exactly why Gretsch decided to make their G6122T-6212GE Vintage Select 1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman almost entirely out of this wonderful wood. At Sweetwater, we've found that this hollowbody's arched body yields a wonderfully snappy, open tone that, when combined with the dynamic sound of its TV Jones Classic pickups, cuts through a dense mix and sounds great in any situation.

TV Jones Classic pickups deliver timeless Gretsch tone

When you want that classic '50s-era Gretsch tone, you need real TV Jones humbuckers. That's why Gretsch gave their G6122-6212GE Vintage Select 1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman a pair of TV Classic pickups. Designed to sound just like the humbuckers found in '50s and '60s Gretsch guitars, these pickups give your guitar a bright and open sound that's jangly on your highs with the kind of bite you'd normally associate with single-coil pickups. It's the perfect sound for rock, rockabilly, blues, country, and more.

Two volume controls + one tone control = exceptional sonic flexibility

It's easy to stereotype the Gretsch G6122-6212GE Vintage Select 1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman until you play it, and then you realize you can pull off a lot of tonal tricks with it. With a volume control for each pickup, you can create your perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control lets you fine-tune your sound once you have the pickups dialed in. And thanks to the master volume control, you can take your tube amp from clean to growling without changing the balance between your pickups. Of course, you'll get sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually, but there's a lot of territory to cover when you combine them.

Gretsch G6122-6212GE Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Hollowbody electric guitar with period-correct specs
  • Arched maple body delivers a deliciously snappy, open tone
  • TV Jones Classic pickups yield sweet vintage character
  • Highly playable standard U-shaped maple neck with ebony fingerboard
  • 2 volume controls and 1 tone control create exceptional sonic flexibility
  • G-Cutout tailpiece provides ample sustain
The Gretsch G6122-6212GE 12-string hollowbody electric guitar is a vintage Gretsch without the vintage price tag!
