Descending from the greatest jazz guitars of the 20th century, the Gretsch G6122-1962 Country Classic Electric Guitar combines stellar tone from Filter'Tron adjustable pickups and a laminated maple body with astounding visuals provided by 24k gold hardware, ebony fretboard, offset markers, multiple body binding, plus a bound fretboard and headpiece.

This 1962 Reissued Gretsch Guitar has been a favorite of many famous musicians over the years since first being endorsed by the great Chet Atkins in 1962 under the name the Gretsch "Country Gentleman".  George Harrison of the Beatles was also a proud owner of this Gretsch model, appearing with it on the Ed Sullivan show and using it during the Beatles first US tour.  It has also been a favorite of Elvis Presley, who owned this same style model during it's manufacturing as the Gretsch "Country Classic".
