What we say:
Gretsch and Chet Aktins enjoyed a long history together and some of his signature models, like this beautiful Tennessee Rose, have remained to become staples of the Gretsch catalogue.
This large bodied single-cut hollowbody exemplifies much of what make Gretsch guitars so stylish: the bound f-holes, the thumbnail fingerboard inlays, the Bigsby tremolo and the deep Cherry finish over the laminated Maple body. There is no mistaking what kind of guitar this is!
A pair of high quality TV Jones Hilo’Tron pickups provide a single coil tone with plenty of vintage twang and a natural midrange bump. It’s a very pure sound.
Gretsch have twinned up the Bigsby tremolo with a special bridge that ‘rocks’ to accommodate movement from the tremolo. This helps the tuning stay tight, as do the Grover tuners.
This beautiful guitar is perfect for all kinds of roots and heritage music as well as having a mean rock ’n’ roll growl!
A pair of rich-sounding TV Jones® Hilo’Tron pickups creates broad tone with lively response, reflecting the natural voice of the guitar. Parallel tone bars connect the top and back of this guitar for authentic vintage tone. Traditional Gretsch controls—individual pickup volume controls, master volume, and the classic three-position tone switch—allow you to blend and shape the pickups’ sound, creating countless tonal variations. With the new Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil capacitors, you get incredibly silky vintage high end. A pinned “rocking” bar bridge reacts in tandem with the Bigsby B6CVT vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the vintage-style bone nut lets the strings slide freely without binding in the slots. The standard “U”-shaped maple neck bears a 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets for a classic playing experience that works with any style.
Designed for pure tone and slick, comfortable playing feel, this guitar features the classic aesthetics true Gretsch fans love—nickel “G Arrow” control knobs, aged white binding with black purfling, durable gloss urethane finish, aged pearloid thumbnail inlays, silver vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo and nickel Grover® Sta-tite™ tuning machines. A tastefully elegant instrument, inspired by one of guitar’s greatest eras, the Golden Era Edition 1962 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose with Bigsby is an inspiring guitar that’s ready to go at any time.
