HiBack in the late 60s I bought a new old stockGretsch 6120 Nashville 1959 model guitar.I purchased it from a music store in Memphisthat was going out of business and this instrumenthas been in their warehouse for a decade unsold.It had been in its factory case for ten years unmolested.The aroma that came out of that case and guitar wasjust magic! Never will forget it.And a magic instrument also!The wonders that Gretsch could do with wood metal and glue.Way can't we still do stuff like that here(USA) anymore?I R&R with that 6120 for 40 years she is now retiredand living with my daughter in TexasJeri
Hi AceDoes it play and sound as good as it looks?If it sounds half as good as it looks! What scale is it?I hate to ask about the priceJeri
That's a fine looking ax, but how does it smell !!!???
Rickenbacker still makes their beautiful guitars here in America, and I know what you mean about the aroma of a fine guitar and case! My 1967 Fender Corondao XII had it the most strikingly, but my Rickenbacker 330/12 did(does) too. I can still clearly remember the first time I opened up the case! I think my Rickenbacker deserves a Gretsch as a stable mate one of these days, but I doubt the $$$ are going to be available any time soon. By the way, did yours have a Bigsby on it?Eamon
Hi AceWell concerning being two years old and "opening up"That I have noted about Martins, seems like fora Martin that period is approximately 5 years.When new they are just dead(and set up badly)Get them set up and wait 5 years for them to come inand you have that C.F. Martin sound.Go to a Music store and play a new one and you will be disappointedJeriPS Do you have a price list or web site?
Hi Eamon I owned a Ricky 330/12 ,a very old oneIt was a wonderful guitar.A few years back I decided for some reason, I had toomany guitars. I had a sell off on ebayThe Ricky was one of the ones I soldI regret that lots, very stupid of meJeri
It's his shop, and I go there one evening a week to work on guitars with him for fun. It's just him and me.
