Up first is a  1962-1963 Gretsch 6119 Chet Atkins Tennessean that features a maple body and bound rosewood fingerboard with a Bigsby vibrato.

The pickups are a Lindy Fralin P-90 in the bridge position and a P-90 pickup that came out of a 1957 ES-175 in the neck position.

The previous owner was pretty sure it was the original hand-tooled leather case, although we haven’t verified that independently.  The f-holes are painted on, very common at the time but worth noting.
