2009 NOS Gretsch G6120WCST Stephen Stern Masterbuilt + OHSC + Shipping Carton
Built by Grestch master builder Steven Stern in 2009 and pinstriped by renowned hot rod artist Junior Bo Huff, this guitar was part of a group of 40 guitars displayed at the 2010 NAMM show and is one of the few lots unsold (New Old Stock) from the original batch.
Stephen Stern is the BEST, well that’s what one forum post claims at least. Spearheading the custom shop at Gretsch for many years now, he is highly regarded amongst the guitar building community and players alike for his craftsmanship and attention to detail.
Junior Bo Huff grew up pinstriping cars and recently took over the running of his father’s, Bo Huff, shop in Utah. Bo Huff is legendary amongst the hot rod community with Junior carrying on the fine tradition.
This guitar is in New Old Stock, unsold condition. The artwork is stunning, the quality so high and really accentuates the finish. It has some light aging by Stephen Stern but really does look the part.
The neck is in superb shape with its glossy finish. The fretboard is also in superb shape as are the frets. This guitar, being unsold is exactly how it left the Gretsch factory in 2010.
The hardware on this one is exceptional and this too has been lightly aged by Stephen Stern. One clasp of the case has broken off during moving at some stage (not by us) but is in the case pocket Included is also the original Gretsch cardboard shipping carton.
The electronics are in perfect shape and have remained untouched.
The guitar comes with its correct leather covered hardshell case which has also been pinstriped.
Sonically this guitar delivers. The unamplified sound has a clear tone that really translates plugged in. Both pickups sound so wonderful, very classic Gretsch and the array of switches add to the tonal palette. The springiness of the Bigsby is also so pleasing.
If you're on the lookout for a killer looking and very rare (1 of 40) Masterbuilt Gretsch then stop immediately and get yourself over here, this may be the one for you and you won't find another like this!
