The guitars conceived and produced by the Gretsch Company after WWII represent some of the more unique sounding and visually dynamic models available during the ''50s and into the mid-''60s.

'59 Chet Atkins Hollowbody model 6120
The flagship Chet Atkins 6120 evolved away from many of the western features it was introduced with, and by 1959 had been optimized with an internal trestle bracing system and FilterTron pickups. These modifications, along with the high-profile association to Brian Setzer, has made this model year a favorite amongst Gretsch fans. (Guitar courtesy of Fred Stucky)
