1963 Gretsch 6119 Chet Atkins Tennessean

1963 Gretsch 6119 Chet Atkins Tennessean, all original and in good condition. There is genuine play-wear, the finish is still strong overall, the original frets are still in very good shape - the playability is very comfortable with a low action. 

Two original HiLo-tron pickups sound great. The binding is in excellent shape which is hard to find on older Gretsch guitars. Guitar has had a later bridge fitted for tuning stability - there is some cosmetic damage to the top area, however we think this could be restored very easily.

Comes in its orig. period correct hardshell case. A great opportunity to obtain a gigable vintage Gretsch with incredible tone.
