Selling my FMIC Gretsch "1962"Country Classic II

Postby Epidrake » Sun Jun 05, 2011 10:03 pm

I'm selling my most beautiful guitar. A Fender Musical Instruments Corp (FMIC) Gretsch "1962" Country Classic II. It is in mint condition except for the gold on the Bigsby arm. That plating comes off in the case without playing it. The guitar is virtually un-played and is strung with Pyramid Golds. It sounds amazing but I never play it. It is crafted in Japan and doesn't have a mark on it.
Here are the specs"
24k gold-plated hardware and solid gold tone.
Descending from the greatest jazz guitars of the 20th century, the Gretsch G6122-1962 Country Classic Electric Guitar combines stellar tone from Filter'Tron™ adjustable pickups and a laminated maple body with astounding visuals provided by 24k gold hardware, ebony fretboard, offset markers, multiple body binding, plus a bound fretboard and headpiece. With 2-1/4" body depth, solid brass gold-plated knobs, deluxe high-ratio tuners, and a gold-plated Bigsby, the Country Classic is definitely the King of Swing. Includes hardshell case.

George Harrison used the Country Classic on the Ed Sullivan shows and on The Beatles' first U.S. tour!

Thanks Bob. Don't worry. I still have plenty, in fact too many. Just thinning the herd. I have a lot of expenses and my son is starting college in the fall. Man, is college expensive nowadays. :shock:

Will do Greg.
No mutes but it does have the FMIC Filtertrons which are supposed to be way better than the regular pre-Fender ones. I think TV Jones started working with them at that time.
The guitar does make me look thinner too. :lol:
