Take It From The Top

Released in 1958 to commomerate Gretsch’s 75th anniversary, this is a rare, stunning Gretsch 6125 with a two-tone smoke green finish and exclusive built-in playing features that help generate a sound of great distinction. This guitar is in excellent condition, with all its original parts. The binding is intact but it appears that a portion of the lacquer has been scraped away on some areas of the back binding. Despite this, the overall package is in extremely good condition, and it’s undeniably a really cool piece of vintage music memorabilia, very collectable and utterly playable.

 

Special Features

Featuring single cutaway, laminate maple hollow body construction, single PAF Gretsch Filter'Tron pickup and rocker bar bridge with wooden ebony base, there are some fascinating features to this period piece. The Gretsch G cutout tailpiece is striking, while other aspects include two oversized f-holes, white binding on the top and back body edges, Gretsch plexiglass pickguard with metal bracket, one Gretsch G with arrow knurled master volume knob, tone selector and a three way toggle switch. There is a two-piece laminated maple neck, ebony fingerboard with mother of pearl neoclassical thumbnail inlays starting at the first fret, black headstock overlay with mother of pearl Gretsch logo inlay and an Anniversary model plate with engraved diamond. You’ll also see open gear "rope" smooth button tuners and original screw in place strap button, all set off against a two-tone smoke green finish. The original hard shell case is also included.
