GRETSCH BRING OUT THE BRIGHT STARS FOR CHRISTMAS

Posted in Blog, Electric Guitars, Gear, Sydney Guitar Drum Show News    //    Post Date - December 11, 2018

Everybody knows that Gretsch guitars have some of the most attractive instruments you’ll ever see. Their design is superb, the sound magnificent. Here are a few offerings from Gretsch for the festive season … some for those on the big bucks but plenty of quality, affordable guitars available too.


G6134T LIMITED EDITION PENGUIN™ WITH BIGSBY®, EBONY FINGERBOARD, CASINO GOLD
The richly appointed G6134T Limited Edition Penguin™ with Bigsby® takes Gretsch’s rarest bird and decks it out in a flashy Casino Gold finish, complemented by a matching headstock, glittering silver sparkle binding with white/black/white purfling and chrome hardware (including a banjo arm rest).

The chambered mahogany single-cutaway body magnifies harmonic richness by letting air resonate between the maple top and body for livelier and more articulate tone. Dual TV Jones® TV Classic pickups deliver pure Gretsch power, with “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil capacitors under the hood for even smoother vintage tone. The G6134 also includes a no-load tone control for smoother tonal taper while unleashing full-throttle Filter’Tron™ power, and a Bigsby® B3C vibrato tailpiece.

Premium features include:
• Casino Gold finish with matching headstock and chrome hardware
• Chrome banjo arm rest
• Silver sparkle binding with white/black/white purfling

G5230T ELECTROMATIC® JET™ FT SINGLE-CUT WITH BIGSBY®, BLACK WALNUT FINGERBOARD, AIRLINE SILVER
Pure Jet™ Power
In its 65 year existence the Gretsch Jet has been the hallmark sound for iconic players. The all-new G5230T Electromatic® Jet™ FT Single-Cut with Bigsby® captures that essential Jet power and fidelity at an incredible price.
Chambered Mahogany Bodies — Loud and Clear
Classic Jet tone begins with a chambered mahogany body with maple top that produces full lows and mids with an exceptionally smooth and present high end. The result is a deep acoustic foundation that is robust, yet balanced.

Black Top Filter’Tron™ Pickups – Quintessential Power and Clarity
Black Top Filter’Tron pickups amplify and accentuate the Electromatic Jet FT’s chambered body to produce a wide, balanced and transparent tone. Loud and punchy, this Jet sounds out with remarkable definition at any level of gain. Together, the body and pickups thunder with full, responsive lows and mids with a high end that sparkles without spikes.

Total Tonal Control
The Electromatic Jet FT is equipped with essential features that give you complete tonal control. The combination of individual pickup volume controls, master tone and master volume with treble bleed circuit provides intuitive global control over your pickup and tone settings.
