Hi All,

Can someone tell me what the exact difference between a Gretsch 6130 and 6121 is?

Thanks,
Sam

If you are talking about the NEW Gretsch 6130's , here's the lowdown-- The 6130 is called the Knotty Pine Roundup. This is an updated replica of the original Knotty Pine 6130's made from 1955 to 1958. The distinct features of the 6130 are: * Unique knotty pine top (6121 has a laminated maple top) * Western belt buckle tailpiece (Bigsby is NOT an option) * Melita Synchrosonic bridge (6121 has a Bigsby rocking bridge) * different pickguard (6121 has a Chet Atkins pickguard) * Limited production--ONLY 75 PIECES MADE WORLDWIDE
