Malcolm Young’s Gretsch 6121 Chet Atkins

Malcolm played a Gretsch 6121 Chet Atkins solid body guitar in a video for the song “Are You Ready”, filmed probably sometime in 1990 or 1992.

Based on the looks, the guitar was mostly stock, except that Malcolm removed the pickguard, which is something he did on pretty much every single Gretsch that he played.
