A vintage 1962 Gretsch 6160 Electromatic “Chet Atkins” 2×12 tube combo amp.

One of the few vintage Gretsch amps with “giggable” power, the 2×12 6160 has a big sound but is still light enough that you won’t have to hire a road crew to move it. It features a nice, thick clean tone that turns into a rich overdrive as you turn up the gain, reminiscent of a narrow panel-era tweed Fender with a bit more clean headroom. It also features a nice, all-tube tremolo.
