Classic G6122 Tone, Equipped for Performance

The Gretsch G6122 Players Edition Country Gentleman hollowbody electric guitar delivers that classic Gretsch tone and feel, while providing performance-focused modern enhancements. For example, the Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece has a string-through design that makes it easier to change strings while also enhancing sustain. The slim (2.25") body helps fight feedback onstage, while maintaining full hollowbody tone thanks to the custom bracing pattern. Complete with a pair of High Sensitive Filter'Tron humbucking pickups, the Gretsch G6122 Players Edition Country Gentleman delivers iconic hollowbody tone in a gig-ready instrument.

Gretsch G6122 Players Edition Country Gentleman Hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Filter'Tron pickups deliver classic Gretsch humbucker tone
  • Slim body helps fight feedback onstage
  • Expressive Bigsby vibrato with string-through design
Filter'Tron pickups deliver classic Gretsch humbucker tone

When you want that classic '50s-era archtop guitar tone, you need real Gretsch humbuckers. That's why Gretsch gave their G6122 Players Edition Country Gentleman a pair of Filter'Tron pickups. Unlike most humbuckers, these traditional Gretsch pickups give you a characteristically bright and open sound that's jangly on your highs with an almost single-coil bite.

Slim body helps fight feedback onstage

With a body thickness around 2.25", the Gretsch G6122 Players Edition Country Gentleman is slimmer than many other hollowbody electrics you'll find at Sweetwater. That helps reduce feedback when playing onstage with loud amplifiers. And Gretsch customized the bracing pattern of the G6122 Players Edition Country Gentleman to make sure that you get full hollowbody tone and depth despite the slimmer size.

Expressive Bigsby vibrato with string-through design

You can't beat the sound of a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece for expressive guitar licks, and the Bigsby B6GP on this Gretsch has a string-through design that makes it even faster to change strings. This design also helps enhance sustain and note definition, helping each note ring as clear as a bell.

Gretsch G6122 Players Edition Country Gentleman Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Hollowbody guitar with maple laminate body
  • Slim 2.25" body helps fight feedback onstage
  • Dual Filter'Tron pickups for classic Gretsch guitar tone
  • Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece for expressive bends and flutters
  • String-through bridge design enhances sustain and note definition
  • Treble Bleed circuit maintains clarity when rolling back the volume knob
  • Gotoh gold tuners for exceptional tuning stability
Timeless tone awaits in the Gretsch G6122 Players Edition Country Gentleman.

Gretsch Country Gentleman Players Edition

This guitar has it's own unique characteristics; either capturing that 60's rock sound, or smooth jazz progressions. It plays so comfortably, it's hard to put down. This guitar is not meant to replace a Les Paul for rock solos, as string bends are not as easily negotiated. It was delivered from Sweetwater already set-up, action is outstanding! The usual Sweetwater perks were also evident; safely packaged, mint condition, fast expediting, and service representative follow-up.
