As well as offering comfortable playability, the Gretsch G6118T-135 PRO Anniversary Edition also features two High-Sensitive FilterTron pickups, located at the neck and bridge positions. This powerful pair complements the guitar's chambered body resonance and delivers a balanced and transparent tone, eliminating any undesirable hum that is often associated with single-coil pickups.
Bigsby B6CP Vibrato Tailpiece
One of the most recognisable features on this guitar is the Bigsby tremolo, which has featured on Gretsch guitars since the 1950s. With the Bigsby tremolo players can add tremolo and pitch-bending effects to single notes or full chords, while remaining in-tune.
Rocking Bar Bridge With Pinned Ebony Base
This innovative bridge system allows the bar to rock back and forth when used with the Bigsby tremolo, producing a smooth, glassy tone with enhanced sustain.
Graph Tech Tusq XL Nut
The Gretsch G6118T-135 Electric Guitar also features a Graph Tech Tusq nut 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.
