Overview

Gretsch G6118T-LTV 130TH Anniversary Hollow Body Guitar in Black

In 1883, Friedrich Gretsch (a German immigrant living in Brooklyn, New York) set up his own shop manufacturing a range of banjos, tambourines and drums.  In the subsequent 12 years before his untimely death, the store (along with the Gretsch reputation) grew and grew, and by the time the "Big Band Era"  introduced the world to the archtop guitar, Gretsch were ready to delve headfirst into the world of guitar manufacture with the Synchromatic line of instruments.  And the rest, as they say, is history.

A celebration of 130 years at the forefront of the music industry

Now, in celebration of their 130th anniversary, Gretsch introduces a beautiful new Professional Collection guitar - the G6118T-LTV 130th Anniversary Jr. model. Its 2 1/4"-deep single-cutaway three-ply maple body has a 14" lower bout, arched top and back, and spruce "ML" bracing. Especially striking is the nitrocellulose lacquer finish, which is Black on the top and Metallic Gold on the back and sides, with single-ply binding.

An Impressive Array of Premium Appointments

Other premium features include a three-piece maple neck; 12"-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, pearloid Neo-Classic™ "thumbnail" inlays and bone nut; Anniversary model plaque and pearloid Gretsch logo on headstock; and dual TV Jones® Power'Tron™ pickups. The guitar also has a metallic gold pickguard, "G" Arrow" control knobs and chrome hardware, an Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with pinned ebony base and Bigsby® B3CB tailpiece, and Sperzel® locking tuners. Available in right- and left-handed models, and deluxe hard-shell case included.

Vintage-Style Pickups

The two TV Jones Power'Tron pickups housed in this guitar are a precious homage to the classic 1950's pickups in the original Gretsch electric guitars, and have been specially designed to produce a strong midrange presence and high output levels.

With the bridge pickup, single treble notes are reproduced with a fuller tone, whilst your bass notes are projected with plenty of twang, but in a deep and clear manner.  The neck pickup produces a dark, hot tone that's perfect for full chords and guitar solos that aren't too treble-heavy.

Combined, the TV Jones Power'Trons produce a nice rounded top-end, with plenty of natural mid-range presence.  Dynamic and boisterous when you dig in, with a clean, compressed treble - in other words perfectly matched with Gretsch guitars.
