Gretsch G6118T-135 Pro LTD 135th Anniversary with Bigsby

Written by

Sam Beattie

A 135th Anniversary is surely cause for celebration - and what better way to celebrate than to release a stellar line of guitars? Given their wealth of experience in the business, Gretsch know a thing or two about producing spellbinding instruments that strike the perfect balance between modern playability and nostalgic charm! 

Body & Neck

As with many of their semi-hollow guitars, the G6118T-135 employs maple for both the body and the neck. This perfectly contrasts with the notoriously boomy, full Gretsch sound, adding heaps of clarity that results in a wholly balanced and rich tone. 

The neck features a gloss finish with an Ebony fingerboard for a silky smooth feel, and the standard 'U' profile - this provides you with plenty to grip in an ergonomic fashion, easy to wrap your full fretting hand around and get rockin'!  

Electronics & Hardware

Gretsch opted for their High Sensitive FilterTron pickups in both positions for this model; they perfectly complement the simple choice of tonewoods, emphasising both the crispy clarity of the maple and the warmth of the ebony & hollow design. 

Now it wouldn't be a 135th Anniversary Gretsch without a Bigsby trem! Typically taut and responsive, the B6CP string-thru tailpiece is ideal for when you want to add a bit of wobble to your sizzling rock'n'roll jams. Combine this with Gotoh locking machine heads, nickel-finished hardware and G-arrow control knobs, and you've got a timeless looking instrument that oozes modern class! 

Here's what Gretsch Have To Say About G6118T-135 LTD 135th Anniversary with Bigsby:

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 Gotoh locking tuners.

Includes a deluxe hardshell case.
