Inspired by the original CGP (Certified Guitar Player), Chet Atkins,
this Country Gentleman is more than able to keep up with the most
fleet-fingered guitarist. Packed with the sound, style and features that
made the original a legend, the ’59 Gent provides highly responsive,
amazingly articulate sound.

A pair of TV Jones® pickups—a Super’Tron Classic Plus bridge pickup and
Super’Tron neck pickup—responds to every stroke with defined, eloquent
tone. The modified control layout features an individual bridge pickup
volume, and master volume and tone controls, allowing you to create
countless tonal variations. Add the new Gretsch “Squeezebox”
paper-in-oil capacitors and you get incredibly silky vintage high end.
The standard “U”-shaped maple neck with 1.75” nut bears a 12”-radius
ebony fingerboard with 22 vintage-style small frets and is a picker’s
dream. A pinned “rocking” bar bridge works with the Bigsby B6GWVT
vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the vintage-style genuine bone
nut lets the strings slide freely without binding in the slots.

All of the ’59 Gent’s classic features are here—laminated 5-ply figured
maple top with painted F Holes, “wire” vibrato arm, gold “G Arrow”
control knobs, aged white binding with black purfling, gloss
nitrocellulose lacquer finish, aged pearloid thumbnail inlays, gold
vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo and gold Grover®
Imperial™ tuning machines with ‘butterbean’ buttons. A truly classic
instrument with refined style and sound, the G6122T-59 Chet Atkins
Country Gentleman Hollow Body with Bigsby is a fine addition to any
guitarist’s collection.
