Gretsch G6120 Eddie Cochran Signature
Raisin' a HollerSadly, scientists and medical researchers have reported that, despite the many recent advancements in technology, there still ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues. But, playing Gretsch's Eddie Cochran signature model will certainly help you chase them away for a little while! Cochran was an incandescent musical talent that accomplished a lifetime's worth of groundbreaking guitar work in just 21 years, and it is impossible to overstate his vast influence on rock music. The list of artists who have covered his tunes reads like a Who's Who of legendary rock musicians: The Who, Springsteen, Van Halen, Zeppelin, Bowie, and Hendrix, just to name a few.
Now, Gretsch has produced an Eddie Cochran Signature model, and it is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest guitar players ever to lay finger to string. It wears a stylish Western Maple Stain finish on its laminated maple body, which looks great with its gold hardware and white binding--serious classic car vibes here, folks! And, the fingerboard has cactus, steerhead, and fence designs sitting within each block inlay to cultivate a sweet-looking Western vibe. All in all, the aesthetic borrows from rock, rockabilly, and country looks to create a pleasing smorgasbord of delightful cosmetic appointments.
Sweet Sounds of SummerFrom a sonic standpoint, the Eddie Cochran Signature G6120 is a monster guitar. It has a Gretsch DynaSonic in the bridge position and a Lindy Fralin P-90 in the neck position, and together the pickups give you an expansive palette of inspiring tones. If you want classic Gretsch twang, jangle, shimmer, and clarity, the Dynasonic will get the job done. By contrast, the P-90 gives you lots of warmer, richer, thicker sounds while maintaining excellent focus. In the middle position, they give you ridiculously full tone across the whole frequency spectrum.
While Eddie Cochran Signature's glorious sound grabs you at first, its addictive handfeel keeps you playing for hours and hours. Its C-shaped neck profile has a 9.5" radius, which works well for both chording and stringbending. Also, its 24.6 means that there's a little less string tension, so the strings feel nice and slinky.
We're proud to showcase such an incredible signature instrument, and we know the Eddie Cochran Signature G6120 will inspire you to reach new heights on your fretboard journey.
