The January 1999 NAMM show in Los Angeles was the official industry introduction of the Gretsch Keith Scott model Nashville acoustic electric guitar with a beautiful gold top, DynaSonic pickups, and classic Gretsch features.
Scott, who has played guitar for Bryan Adams for 17 years, designed the guitar with playability, tone, and stage presence in mind.
“We are delighted to introduce this new Nashville with Keith’s name on it,” stated Fred Gretsch, president of The Gretsch Guitar Company and fourth generation owner of the company.
“This guitar is built for and dedicated to all of the pro players, sidemen and women, and journeyman musicians who support others on stage and in the studio. 99% of the musicians don’t get their names on the marquis and this guitar is for them.”
Throughout his twenty plus year career as a professional musician, Keith has been an active owner and player of Gretsch guitars. “My White Falcon has been an integral part of the Bryan Adams shows and recordings for many years,” noted Scott. “Now this gold Nashville will be used extensively on stage and in the studio”.
This guitar now out of production, making them a limited edition modern collectible.
Heavily gold-plated hardware (including the Bigsby) and a beautiful greeny gold metallic top colour. The most luxurious ebony fretboard you could imagine, and the great bite of the early-style single-coil DeArmond pickups make this a serious Gretsch! Incredible build quality and finish.
The Keith Scott Nashville, model 612OKS features a brilliant gold top that contrasts beautifully with dark mahogany sides and back. The 24 1/2″ inch scale neck has an ebony fingerboard with Neoclassical position markers on a rock maple neck.
A Gretsch Bigsby is included that is 24K gold plated, as is the rest of the hardware. The 16″ wide multiple bound body also features oversized f-holes, master and individual pickup volume controls, tone control and Gretsch’s Space Control Bridge. Gretsch single coil DynaSonic pickups give the Keith Scott model the tone of the mid-fifties guitars, duplicating the pickup that was used until 1958.
