Get ready. It’s that time of the year again which every guitarist looks forward to. You have been patiently waiting to see what the new year brings to the guitar world, and it’s another exciting year for Gretsch. 

Wait no longer. Gretsch 2021 has arrived with something for everyone. They’ve brought us some familiar models but with updated looks, thinner bodies, and even some new pickups to tantalise our tonal taste buds. We’ve summed up everything you need to know about the new Gretsch guitars below.

New Finishes

No matter your style as a player, standing out and matching your individuality to your instrument is important to every single guitarist out there. New for 2021, Gretsch has delivered some eye-catching new finishes on the G5622T models to help showcase your personality.

If you like that old-school orange, then the Speyside finish is going to be right up your alley. But, if you were a fan of Gretsch’s Single Barrel Stain, you will certainly adore this all-new Single Barrel Burst finish.

Receive all that iconic Gretsch tonal flavour while alluring aesthetics are sure to grab yours, and your audience’s, attention. All that Electromatic sonic flair with a fresh look for 2021 – they are gorgeous.

Thinner Bodies

Another new feature, we know you will appreciate is this quality design. Gretsch has listened to all your needs as players, and if you wanted a thinner Streamliner body, you got it. These G2410TG models feature a thinner 2.25’’ maple body, giving this Hollow Body a lighter, more comfortable feel than ever before - while retaining distinctive Hollow Body tone.

That’s not all though, these familiar Gretsch G2410TG Streamliner models come sporting glistening gold hardware which complements each finish beautifully. Adding a touch of luxury while giving each model a hint of vintage aesthetic charm.
