1966 Gretsch "Chet Atkins" Tennessean
From Reverb: Gretsch introduced 6119 Tennessean in 1958 as another Chet Atkins endorsed guitar. Upon introduction, the 6119 was somewhat less ornate than the 6120 and included only one Filter 'Tron pickup in the bridge position. Like other Gretsch archtops of this era, the 6119 went through a number of cosmetic and design changes in the late '50s and early '60s. Perhaps most notably, the guitar gained a second pickup in 1961.
Ours is the two pickup, 1966 model, and is all original. A really great sounding vintage Gretsch, at a great price!
