What makes this guitar great?

The original 6120 model dates back to the 1950’s and 60’s, and are some of the most desirable guitars in the world because of what they introduced to the music scene as well as becoming an iconic image of a “classic guitar”. The G6120AM model recreates that charm, sound and look of the originals from the 50’s and 60’s, but with modern dependability.

The FilterTron pickups are top-notch, and have very low noise levels, can play cleanly, and handle overdrive.
