    I just ordered one from AMS for 1379 (Happy Birthday to me!). I was torn between that and the country, but I have a 335, so I wanted a smaller body. Am I going to be sending it back because of quality issues or is it worth $1379?

      Will it give me that Here, There and Everywhere sound or did George use a rick there?

        Great guitar. Not a big fan of the Hilotrons, though.

        OTOH, at that price, you can swap 'em out for TV-Jones Filtertrons, and still be way ahead!

          It is worth it. It is a very nice guitar. I paid $2000 new for mine 2 years ago.

            You are going to be so f'ing happy.

            I hang with alot of Gretsch heads and I have yet to hear any "issues". It's possible there may be a problem with an individual guitar but as a rule the QC is very tight.

                Damn, first time I ever posted about a new guitar and got such strong positive feedback. I've heard about TV-Jones, never checked them out, first I'll listen to the stock pups. You guys got me fired up, thanks!

                  I just got my 6120DSW and it's GREAT!

                  The only issue I have, and it's personal preference, is the smaller vintage frets. I'm used to jumbo, but I'll deal!

                  I've got a Country Club on the way.

                  There are going to be a lot of Gretsch postings soon!

                  Have no fear, I'm sure it will be awesome! If it's not, send it back, and order another!

                    I didn't notice in the specs about the size of the frets. I really like vintage frets (I'm starting to get a boner)! Is this guitar light? I read somewhere 6.5 lbs.

                      The 6120 is light as ****************. Almost startingly light!

                      Ok, so if you call frets that aren't the size of JUMBO's vintage...then...yeah...vintage size.

                      Otherwise, I'll have to restate what I said, and say "the frets are smaller than jumbos!"

                      I hate to play into the "panic buy" of MF. But, you know what...these prices are awesome and they really won't last. Congrats on getting in before the door shuts!
