From driving rhythm to ripping leads, the classic double-cutaway G6122-1962 Country Gentleman Classic has it all! Features include dual High Sensitive Filter'Tron™ pickups, "tone switch" circuitry, "action-flow" neck, double mutes, back pad and Bigsby® B6G vibrato tailpiece.

Gretsch® introduced the famous Chet Atkins 6122 Country Gentleman guitar in 1958 as a high-end complement to the popular 6120 Chet Atkins Hollow Body model. The Country Gentleman became an immediate hit, and was heard on many hits in the late ’50s and throughout the ’60s (and beyond) not only by Atkins himself, but by legions of players who emerged from the British Invasion and ’60s guitar boom who revered it for its terrific and elegant sound, look and feel. It was so big, so luxurious — and so rockin’! In single- and double-cutaway models, the Country Gentleman has left an indelible imprint on the history of popular music, from The Beatles to The Stone Roses, and today’s 6122 Country Gentleman guitars continue that great Gretsch tradition— and “That Great Gretsch Sound!™”

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region

Choose the region you are shopping from to view products in your currency.

We have temporarily suspended processing of EUR payments, all orders will be charged in GBP.
