New to Dave’s Collection: 1956 Gretsch Chet Atkins Hollow Body 6120

We’re happy to be able to unveil the newest addition to Dave’s Collection: a 1956 Gretsch Chet Atkins Hollow Body 6120
 
Here’s the story:
According to the Gretsch 6120 book by Edward Ball, Gretsch guitars were usually made in batches of 100. Halfway through the 208xx batch, plain block finger board inlays were replaced by the hump block markers. This batch also was the last to see the “G” brand. With all that in mind, there may be fewer than 50 6120s with both the “G” brand and hump blocks, making this a pretty rare find!
