Jay Scott, The Guitars of the Fred Gretsch Company:

"In 1962 a profound change occurred in the Model 6120 Chet Atkin: the company introduced its Electrontone hollowbody design, a two-inch-deep, 15 1/2 inch-wide (not 16" as the catalog noted) double cutaway body with replica, not real, f-holes painted on the guitar. So, the Model had been converted from a true f-hole, single cutaway, hollow guitar to a simulated f-hole, double cutaway, semi-hollow instrument."
