    i've got a couple of forumite guitars up for the Guitar Pic Of The Day this week and i figured why not have a whole week of it.

    please post your guitars here with pics and specs. i'll bookmark the thread so please don't PM me. if you don't get in this week, chances are i'll use it at a later date.

    thanks!

                              1962 Gretsch Tennesean

                              For 1962, everything about the 6119 changed. The body was now a 1 7/8"-thick single cutaway Electrotone with fake f-holes, carrying two HiLoTrons instead of a single FilterTron, and the fretboard was now bound rosewood. Silver pickguard with Gretsch and Chet Atkins Tennessean in black replaced the earlier black one, and controls now included a volume for each pickup, master volume, tone switch, pickup selector switch and standby switch.

                              Body Width
                              16"

                              Very few were made without fake binding around the fake "F" holes. Since Gretsch batch build in 50's it's possible this is one of only 50. Most 62's have the fake binding.

                              David Crosby, Tom Petty and Hilton Valentine all own(owned) Tennys without the fake F hole binding.
