And here's Little Richard with the very same stereo White Falcon. Notice the same wood paneling. From the croc Selmers, it's apparently in the UK. I tried once to see if the two were ever touring in the UK together or at the same time, but couldn't find anything conclusive. If not, then it would be quite a coincidence that they both posed with the same guitar in the same shop at different times.
Hard to tell from that image. Yes, it IS a '62 reissue Tennessean, because it has the standby switch, & the "fake" "Electrotone body" f-holes. It's very easy to see in the concert video posted farther down. Some models of "Tennessee Rose" do have Filtertrons. so it's likely one of those. The finish LOOKS black, but for some reason Gretsch finishes often photograph black when they're not. For years MANY people thought George Harrison's Country Gents were black, but they were dark walnut; the same with his Tennessean, but that's dark cherry. My Gretsches (same models) both photograph black at times. Always thought that interesting. Hmmm...I’m not sure either. I have seen other pictures pf her with a 6120, so that’s my guess.
Absolutely correct. And the stock finish is dark cherry. Another clue is the standby switch and the "fake" f-holes.I think it is the 6119 1962 FT.
Tennessean with filtertrons.Its a current production guitar.Probably dark cherry stain but looks black in lo light conditions.
