Anyone own one of these guitars and if so what is your opinion on them....sounds like what I want, but without playing one in person, I cant say for sure. Found out that the T stands for tremelo, which I thought is odd, but the depth of the guitar is 2 3/4, so it is not thinner than the usual 6120. Perhaps in reality, the T stands for TV Jones T-armond pickups, they are calling them. Anyway, I got this information from a reputable dealer. The neck width at the nut is 1.6875, and I am used to the 1.75 on my 6122-1959 Country Gentleman,,,that guitar just feels perfect to me, but I have owned it a number of years and I am used to it. Not sure I would be comfy again with the narrower neck. I dont "NEED" the guitar,
I love the looks of it mainly, but when has that ever stopped me from wanting one :D
thanks

I kinda like the 6120T-FM which is thinner 2" 1/4 and Figured Maple with the string thru bigsby. They do have a knob by the vibrato which could be in the way of a stationary brachet, I'm not sure? They are pretty expensive though, I need it like a hole in the head! Al

I wound up buying a 5240 which satisfied my desires...it is a really nice guitar and a lot less money !
