Gretsch announces Eddie Cochran Tribute Guitar

Frozen in time for more than 40 years after the tragic car crash that took his life, the one and only modified Gretsch G6120 guitar owned by the late, great rock-n-roll pioneer, Eddie Cochran is now available.

Virtually indistinguishable from the original, the Gretsch Custom Shop G6120EC Eddie Cochran Tribute model is authentic in every detail, from the aluminum nut and bridge to the famous “dog ear” neck pickup; from the distressed vintage orange nitrocellulose lacquer finish to the relic gold-plated hardware and BigsbyB6GPVF vibrato tailpiece.
