The Gretsch G6136T-59GE features a real bone nut, which maintains its authentic appearance. The main purpose of using a real bone nut compared to modern materials is that bone offers excellent resonance and sustain. A bone nut also delivers a very balanced tone and will last a long time.

Its innovative style bridge is named after its method of adjusting the spacing between each string. Designed by Gretsch’s own Jimmie Webster, the Space Control bridge offers a simple adjustment of the spacing between each string, using the six wheel-shaped saddles positioned along a threaded bar. This allows the player to set a broad string spread for finger-style work or a narrow spread for pick and chord work.
