The Gretsch G6118T Players Edition Anniversary is a hollow bodied, finely tuned, modern music machine that "honours its inspirational past while remaining firmly rooted in the future of music".
With a host of fan favourite features, the G6118T Anniversary is as versatile as it is playable. The "U"-shaped Maple neck offers exceptional comfort and the rolled fretboard edge makes for a pleasant playing experience, regardless of style. String bends and chordal work feel effortless thanks to the 22 medium jumbo frets and 12" radius Rosewood fretboard, which is finished off with Gretsch's iconic pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays.
A pair of all new FT-67 Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups deliver that "Great Gretsch Sound" in abundance, with crystal clear highs and a snarling low end growl. The addition of a treble bleed circuit ensures that your tone will retain its clarity when you roll down the volume. A String-thru Bigsby® B6CP vibrato tailpiece and Adjusto-Matic™ bridge provide all the rockabilly vibrato you'll ever need and the ever reliable Gotoh® locking tuners ensure optimal tuning stability and quick string changes.
The Gretsch G6118T Players Edition Anniversary comes in a deluxe hardshell case and is available in two distinct finishes; Two-Tone Copper Metallic/Sahara Metallic with silver pickguard or Two-Tone Vintage White/Walnut Stain with tortoise pickguard.
