54: – 54 1101- 6120-style archtop (2002)

number54

Prototype guitar based on the Gretsch 6120. Construction is perhaps more acoustic than arch top but a very satisfactory instrument. It is fitted with two De Armond USA pickups and licensed Bigsby and is painted Anniversary two-tone green. The guitar was sold but when the buyer couldn’t come up with the money, it became a demonstration model.

It was subsequently bought by my friend Tony van Roevan several years later and has since become his favourite guitar.
