G6122TFM Players Edition Country Gentleman With String-Thru Bigsby, Filter'tron Pickups, Flame Maple, Amber Stain

As much as we like the original ‘50s/‘60s Chet Atkins Country Gentleman, it’s probably safe to say that Chet would have approved the updated, performance-oriented features on this new version. In addition to a drop-dead gorgeous amber-stained flame maple body, the new Players Edition design brings the classic model into the 21st century.

Two High Sensitive Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups deliver open, clean power, while the new “ML” bracing lets you push this new model further without feeding back. Modern controls—separate bridge and neck volume controls, along with a 3-way switch and no-load master tone and master volume—allow for plenty of tonal variations. Squeezebox paper-in-oil caps add vintage warmth, while the treble bleed circuit keeps it clear when you roll the volume back.

The maple neck has a comfortable “U” shape; the 22-fret ebony fretboard features the classic Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays. The new string-through Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece and pinned “rocking” bar bridge combine with the GraphTech TUSQ XL nut for stable tuning and quicker string changes. All the appointments on this flame-top beauty are deluxe and ultra-functional. A killer guitar—we think Chet would be very proud.

Includes a deluxe hardshell case.

Why We Like Gretsch Guitars

When you think of Gretsch, it’s hard not to think of Mr. Guitar—Chet Atkins. Whether you associate the Gretsch brand with the country gentleman’s impeccable style, rockabilly’s swagger, the Beatles’ early records or music’s newest hitmakers, no guitar offers more distinctive looks and tone than a classic Gretsch—and a series of improvements and "Players Edition" models have brought these traditionally-inspired beauties firmly into the modern era. We're big fans.
