G6120KS Keith Scott Nashville

Gretsch guitars are collectable for a reason - people always want them around, they are masterpieces of design. I wanted to max that out when we worked on the 6120KS. Nothing in this model differs from the classic, proven platform of the 6120 Nashville. I wanted to use existing parts and tooling so it would remain totally Gretsch. We just gave the classic beauty an aesthetic twist that reflects my approach - an element of fun. We spent a lot of time deciding on just the right gold color, added the humped inlays and chose woods carefully for the right tonal properties. One unique feature is my personal neck profile. It's a copy of the neck profile of one of my favorite old Gretsches. It's the neck that always feels right.

The Keith Scott 6120KS Nashville features a brilliant gold top that contrasts beautifully with dark mahogany sides and back. The 24 1 /2 " scale neck has an ebony fingerboard with humped block position markers on a rock maple neck.

The 16" wide multiple bound body also features oversized f-holes, master and individual pickup volume controls, tone control and Gretsch's Space Control bridge. Gretsch single coil DynaSonic pickups give the Keith Scott model the tone of the mid-fifties guitars, duplicating the pickup that was used until 1958. This beauty comes complete with 24K gold plated hardware and Gretsch Bigsby vibrato.
