GRETSCH | Country Gentleman | 1968 | walnut finish

MAKE: Gretsch
MODEL: 6122 Country Gentleman
VINTAGE: 1968
FINISH: Walnut
 
USE:
- STAGE: "City of Blinding Lights" (360 tour), "Zooropa" (360 tour)
- STUDIO: * uncertain *
- VIDEO: "City of Blinding Lights" Pasadena 360 DVD
 
NOTES:
- Looking at the photo, figuring the vintage of this Gretsch can be deceiving. It has a Super'Tron pickup in the neck position. This would suggest it being from the 1964-1966 era. But the single flip-top mute is more telling, dating it from post 1967.
 
- Dallas has said there is a 1963, 1968 and 2009 reissue on the U2:360 tour.
 
- All things considered, this appears to be a 1938 that had a Super'Trong installed in the neck position at some point.
