1963 Gretsch 6122
This Country Gent was ordered by Lew Skinner of "The Du-Cats"
in 1963. At first Gretsch told Lew they were not interested in making a lefty due to
the backlog for this model in righty (this being
right after George Harrison's appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show) but after
2 months of persistence on Lew's part, Duke
Kramer made this one up. In keeping with Gretsch
fashion, note the factory conversion of a righty
body, fitted with a proper lefty neck with only one set of fret markers as
opposed to the normal double markers for a lefty!
