1965 Gretsch 6120 in very good condition and all original except the tuners (Grovers) and case. Orange finish, Double cutaway, two Filtertron pickups & Gold hardware.

All the electronics and hardware are in good working order. The finish is very clean on the body, neck and headstock with only the smallest of dings here and there. There is some deterioration to the binding which is common with these guitars. In one small patch on the back of the body it has crumbled away and one section of the headstock binding is missing. There are a a couple of cracks in the pickguard around the screw holes. The frets have been cleaned and levelled, they are quite low but there's still some life left in them.

This is a great playing and sounding guitar with no issues, it has a great action and plays smoothly. Fully set up by my technician. Serial number: 80054. Weight:7.1lbs. Neck width at nut: 1 & 11/16" at 12th fret: 2 &1/32". Depth at nut: 27/32" at 12th: 1".
