I love my G6119


from Houston,TX

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

Features: Bigsby Tremolo, High-Sensitive Filtertrons Sound: In 2002, Gretsch was bought out by Fender. Now Gretsch has the great Fit and Finish that is why Fender is so successful. The new Fender ownership changed the Filtertrons back to the original specification. Now they are indistinguishable from TV Jones. I get wide harmonic spectrum from low power pickups. I can always add gain and distortion to my fx chain, if that's what I want. This is my first hollowbody, now, only guitar. I thought that I could use the same GHS Light Boomers that I had always used. No way. I have medium gauge flat-wound strings now, and it is always in tune. Even if it sits on the stand for a couple of days. Action, Fit, & Finish: Made in Japan. Urethane Finish. My G6119 is flawless. Every guitar player I have jammed with is envious of it. Had it set up locally/professionally, I highly recommend that. Reliability/Durability: I have owned this guitar for 4 years now and it is as good as it was the day I bought it.

The Tennessee Rose!! A++


from PHX, AZ

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Electric Guitar:

That great Gretsch sound for a great Gretsch guitar. The Tennessee Rose possesses lots of tonal versatility! I can get plenty of different tones with the Filter'Trons and achieve success playing in most styles with this one. This guitar was a bit pricey but was the best value for a solid quality arch top style electric. These Gretsch's are made in Japan in partnership with Fender but are top of the line instruments like many other MIJ guitars such as Takamine, Tokai and ESP. I play mine through a tweed Fender Bassman Reissue and the two are a perfect match. Bright and twangy cleans, aggressive overdriven tones and airy mellow qualities definitely suitable for jazz, folk and blues phrasing. I like to play mine with the reverb cranked up and the settings set clean. Surf rock is a breeze with the Bigsby tremolo. Plenty of textured feedback too, if youre into that sort of thing!! This is a truly well made guitar. Came out of the box set for 11s and the action and height was excellent. Finish was perfect and had not a flaw on it. It is finished in a gloss-urethane finish, which is more much durable than nitro-finished Fenders and Gibson instruments. This guitar has a floating ABR-1 type bridge, which can be a chore for some players when changing strings so be mindful of this. I believe the floating bridge though compliments any hollow bodied guitars tone and is thus an integral part of it.
