Product information - GRETSCH G6118T Players Edition Anniversary Hollow Body Bigsby Two-Tone Copper/Sahara

Anniversary hollow-body electric guitar from the Gretsch Players Edition, including case and certificate

With a classic Gretsch sound and modernized features, the Gretsch G6118T Players Edition Anniversary Hollow Body Bigsby Two-Tone Copper/Sahara Metallic is a hollow-body electric guitar for maximum performance. The Anniversary model from the Players Edition follows the traditional recipe for success of the G6118 with its classic construction, while the reworked wiring with high-quality components coaxes additional tonal nuances out of the instrument. Of course, the Japanese-made G6118T Players Edition Anniversary hollow-body comes with a matching hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.

Hollowbody construction with ML bracing

For its full and dynamic sound, the Gretsch G6118T Players Edition Anniversary Hollow Body Bigsby Two-Tone Copper/Sahara draws on its enormous body volume with a body depth of 2.5". Traditional maple laminate is used for the top, back and sides, while the tried-and-true ML Bracing creates the perfect balance of vibrancy and stability. The two-tone Copper Metallic and Sahara Metallic body is finished off with a white Binding binding and additional black purfling.

FT-67 Filter'Trons with revised Wiring

The two redesigned Gretsch FT-67 Filter'Tron pickups in the neck and bridge positions of the Gretsch G6118T Players Edition Anniversary Hollow Body Bigsby Two-Tone Copper/Sahara aim for classic Vintage Gretsch voicing, but feature some modernized tweaks for today's applications. For example, the dual coils produce a characterful sound with clear highs rich in overtones, a present mid-range and tight bass. Under the hood, however, the Master Volume's Treble Bleed Circuit, a No-Load tone pot and classic 'squeezebox' PIO capacitors provide absolute control over the treble content at any volume setting.

Solid Hardware from Bigsby and Grover

As a traditional feature of classic Gretsch hollowbodies, the famous Bigsby Vibrato cannot be missing. On the G6118T Players Edition Anniversary, the Bigsby B6CP is used as a modernized version in combination with a pinned Adjusto-Matic bridge, which with its string-thru string guide gives more room for pitch modulation and makes string changes much easier. Additional tuning stability when using the Vibrato is guaranteed by six Grover Locking tuners, which require fewer axle windings thanks to their practical clamping function.
