Eddie Cochran's Guitar

Post by andrew666 on Tue Aug 16, 2011 4:42 pm

Gretsch have just introduced a brand-new Eddie Cochran-design guitar - the G6120. It was the only guitar that Cochran ever played during his career. He bought the original when he was sixteen.



Here's what the Gretsch publicity machine has to say about the new guitar:

"Gretsch celebrates the legacy of rock ‘n’ roll and rockabilly pioneer Eddie Cochran with the G6120 Eddie Cochran SIGNATURE Hollow Body model, based on the distinctively modified guitar that fueled Cochran’s highly influential and all-too-brief career.



"Distinctive elements include a special “open” internal body design and the unique combination of a DynaSonic™ single-coil bridge pickup and Lindy Fralin “dog ear” single-coil neck pickup. Features include a three-ply arched maple top with parallel bracing and double-bound "F" holes; three-ply arched maple back and three-ply maple sides; two-ply body binding (white-black); two-piece maple neck with 9.5” radius, single-ply binding and polished brass nut; 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with western-themed pearloid inlays (cactus, steer heads and fences); single-ply headstock binding; translucent plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo; "G"arrow control knobs; compensated aluminum bridge with rosewood base; Bigsby® B6GBVF tailpiece; gold and polished aluminum hardware; gold-plated Grover® V98G Sta-Tite™ tuners; elegant Western Maple Stain finish and a deluxe hard-shell case."

MSRP is US$3625.

They are a great guitar, however that picture is a Brian Setzer tribute model. Duane Eddy also has a signature greTsch which is beautiful.
I love this video.
