Laminated Maple Body

Gretsch fans will love this new anniversary edition to the Professional series, as the G6118T provides a maximum performance, incorporating modern updates for today's musician. Players can benefit from a rich articulate tone, as well as crisp overtones with its laminated maple body. Crafted with a classic hollow construction, the G6118T features an ML bracing system which is specifically voiced to provide full hollow body tones from the thinner, 2.25” body. This hollow design also provides a lightweight guitar that can be played for longer, compared to a solid body, and is ideal for a professional player who gigs more frequently. For added acoustic projection, a duo of classic 'F' sound holes are also featured on the maple soundboard, providing a classic look that many guitarists associate with the 1950s era.

Comfortable Neck Profile

This stunning guitar also features a standard “U”-shaped maple neck which bears a 12”-radius for the ultimate comfort. In addition, a rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets delivers a memorable playing experience that works with any fret-hand style. This rosewood fingerboard is adorned with pearloid thumbnail inlays, which not only provide an elegant look, but also make it easy to see the frets.

High Sensitive Filter'Tron Humbuckers

As well as featuring a superb acoustic tone, the G6118T is equipped with two high sensitive Filter'Tron humbucking pickups, located in the bridge and neck position. These deliver a pristine high end, glassy midrange , robust low end and balanced harmonics for tone that blends seamlessly with other instruments. Along with offering this superb tone, these type of pickups also filter out undesirable hum, neon noises, crackle and electrical disturbance that is commonly associated with single-coil pickups. Controlling these pickups is easy with the "G"-Arrow control knobs, that offer independent volume, and a master volume, as well as a 3-position toggle switch for tonal variations.

Enhanced Nut

The G6118T Players Edition includes a GraphTech Tusq which is impregnated with PTFT, providing a slippy substance which controls the amount of grip that the nut has on the strings. A Tusq nut delivers a rich tone, along with hidden harmonics by transferring your strings vibrations efficiently to the guitar.

Rocking Bar Bridge

Like many model by Gretsch, the Rocking bar bridge is a long time favourite amongst Gretsch enthusiasts due to it delivering a smooth tone with enhanced sustain. This well-known bridge allows the bar to smoothly rock back and forth when used in conjunction with the Bigsby tailpiece.

String-Through Bigsby Tailpiece

The renowned Bigsby tailpiece is a common feature on many Gretsch guitars. Its iconic design allows players to add pitch-bending effects to their tone, whilst maintaining an accurate tuning. In addition, its string-through design provides a quick and easy string change as well as providing increased vibration transfer for enhanced sustain.

Classic Aesthetics

In addition to providing you with uncompromising sounds, the Gretsch G6118T Players also features classic details that Gretsch fans will love. Ornate appointments include nickel “G Arrow” control knobs, white binding with black purfling, gloss urethane finish, pearloid thumbnail inlays, vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo and Schaller locking tuning machines. If that's not enough, you also receive a deluxe hardshell case for storing your beloved guitar.
