Dave Grohl’s Gretsch 6125 (Smoke Green)

Dave was seen playing this guitar during the 1997 Rockpalast/Bizarre Festival concert. He used it to play Doll, See You, and For all the Cows.

As far as why he picked up the guitar for this one particular occasion (he didn’t seem to use it anywhere else) is unknown. If you happen to know the backstory, be sure to leave a comment below.

He plays it on at least My Poor Brain at Fuji Rock 97 as well. There’s footage on YouTube.
