Seeking classic Rockabilly and getting it with my '72 SFDR.

Most often, a Mesa Boogie Studio .22+ with an Altec speaker. I use that amp 95% of the time when I play.

But the amp it sounds best with is a Rivera S120-210 with a Roland RE-150 Space Echo in the loop. Perfect for country and rockabilly tones.

I've had really good luck playing my 6120 with the following -

'64 Super Reverb (dialed the bass down a bit)
'59 Tweed Tremolux - perfect!
Vibrolux Reverb reissue - very sweet.
DRRI - very nice.

The Gretsch is becoming my go-to axe.

White Falcon double cutaway through Tone King Meteor II. I generally look for a clean to slightly broken up tone.

White Falcon into a Gretsch Executive, never thought I would like a single 15" but it rules!
Run it in tandem with either my 68 princeton or Cyber Deluxe, signal split by a Fulltone tube tech delay

6122-1959 and a Duo Jet (Dynas) into a Gretsch Executive amp. I agree with big kenny -- it is a fabulous amp! The bad news is that they are no longer being made.

One of the coolest things about my Gretsch is that the Dynas seem to love every amp in the arsenal - all nine of 'em. Each amp delivers a different take on that unmistakable Dynasonic tone.

The one amp I thought might be a bit iffy turned out to be a real monster with some rockabilly reverb. The G6120DSW has got to be one of the most amp proof guitars out there.

I use several depending on the music. I use a 1972 Bassman 50 with 2 JBL MI 12. Sometimes I use my 67 super reverb. Or I use my 72 Twin for Beatles. THe guitar is a 1968 cherry red Streamliner

Didn't know they stopped making them. I ended up selling mine, but probably would have kept it if I had unlimited space (and cash). It was a nice amp though.
