Gretsch G6118T-135 LTD 135th Anniversary with Bigsby

Classic looks and a unique tone are just two of many indisputable qualities that Gretsch have become renowned for during their 135 year history, and having more than its fair share of both, the Gretsch G6118T-135 certainly pays tribute to this incredible legacy.

Highlighting the very best of Gretsch craftmanship, this celebratory model provides the opportunity to own a special piece of Gretsch history. The 16" hollow 3-ply Maple body - with ’59 style trestle bracing - produces perfect tone balance, and minimises the likelihood of feedback, while the three piece Maple neck with its standard “U” shape, provides a welcoming and comfortable grip behind the Ebony fretboard. Locking Gotoh machine heads allow precise and highly stable tuning, and a rocking bar bridge over a pinned Ebony base ensures that no loss of tone occurs during transfer to the body. Pickups are a versatile pair of highly sensitive Filter’Tron pickups; fluid jazz tones when played clean, edgy blues with a touch of overdrive, and classic grit and bite when taken all the way to 10 - Filter’Trons can do it all. A string-thru Bigsby B6CP tailpiece completes the classic Gretsch performance, and aesthetic.

What Gretsch say:

For well over a century the Gretsch sound has been recognized as big and powerful, loud and clear. To commemorate 135 years of remarkable sound, we proudly present the Limited Edition G6118T-135 Anniversary™ with Bigsby® guitar.

We begin with a 16-inch, 3-ply maple hollow body with '59 trestle bracing that is powered by the acclaimed High Sensitive Filter'Tron™ pickups. Together, this combination provides the big-body power, crisp snap and exceptional fidelity that has made Gretsch famous for over 100 years.

The body features an opulent 2-Tone Casino Gold on Dark Cherry Metallic finish and is adorned with matching pickguard and pickup bezels to create a look and style as big and unmistakable as its sound.

Rest assured the G6118T-135 has plenty of "go" with its "show," and is equipped with a String-Thru Bigsby® B6CP tailpiece, locking tuning keys, master volume with treble bleed circuit, master tone and individual pickup volume controls.

Additional premium features include a three-piece maple neck, 12"-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays, matching mother of pearl Gretsch logo on headstock with an Anniversary model plaque. The G6118T-135 also features chrome G-arrow control knobs and hardware, rocking bar bridge on pinned ebony base and Gotah® locking tuners. Includes a deluxe hardshell case.
