Musikmesse 2011 – Gretsch Announces G6120DE Duane Eddy Signature Hollow Body

Gretsch have announced the new G6120DE Duane Eddy Signature Hollow Body guitar model with this really cool animated video.

Duane Eddy has received many accolades over the course of his long career – one of the greatest being his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 – and I think having your own signature Gretsch is a pretty darned good one also.

In addition to being loved by the critics, he had 15 top 40 singles from 1958 through 1963 and sold more than 100 million records worldwide.

Duane’s Signature G6120DE is based directly on his original 1957 G6120 model with a few modern features thrown in for good measure.

Here is the description supplied by Gretsch:

The G6120DE’s bound single-cutaway hollow body has three-ply maple back, sides and arched top, with trestle bracing and bound oversized f holes. The three-piece bound maple neck has a brass nut, lacquer finish and slim profile based on Eddy’s original 1957 G6120, and is topped with a bound headstock. Other features include a 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium frets and hump-block pearloid inlays; dual DynaSonic single-coil pickups with three-position switching; gold plexi pickguard bearing Gretsch logo and Eddy’s signature; modern Tru-Arc™ bridge and Bigsby B6CBDE vibrato tailpiece with Duane Eddy-style “DE” handle and extra-long string-retainer pins; gold G-arrow control knobs and gold-plated, chrome and polished aluminum hardware; gold-plated Grover V98G Sta-Tite tuners; Dunlop Straplok system; Western Orange Stain lacquer finish; and deluxe hard shell case.
