Yes a beauty for sure.
Life, as with music, often requires one to let go of the melody and listen to the rhythm

Not sure, but its a damn good contender, especially for most beautiful 6120 of all time. Nice flame!


Cool video, btw. I hadn't seen that. Wish we saw more guitars though!

I remember buying the May '82 issue of Guitar Player at a music store, even though I already had a subscription. I just couldn't wait to read the Entwistle article and MAN, OH MAN, that cover! I think I re-read that magazine for weeks afterwards. I had lusted after a 6120 (I bought the one below from George Gruhn in October '81) just like the one on the cover of the LP "Christmas With Chet Atkins". BTW, the Grover Imperials and the Gibson ABR-1 bridge aren't original to Entwistle's Gretsch.
