Gretsch 6120 RHH Gretsch G6120RHH Reverend Horton Heat signature model was designed and built to the Reverend Jim Heath’s specifications. Features include a unique combination of 1955 style Gretsch western motifs and 1958 pickups and control set up. TV Jones classic pickups, pinned Adjusto-matic bridge, Sperzel locking tuners, and clear pickguards are standard equipment on these models.

I thought the RHH 6120 had all the features I wanted and that is why I bought this over the other 6120 models Gretsch offered.

Gretsch 6120 was put back on the map by Brian Setzer and was the favorite axe for Eddie Cochran, Chet Atkins and Duane Eddy. Looking at it and you can hear the twang!

The locking tuners make string changes a snap and is much appreciated with a guitar with removable bridge. The bridge on this guitar is pinned so it does not get easily moved around and ruining intonation which can be an issue with many archtop guitars.
