The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.
At the intersection of innovation and tribute you’ll find the G6118T Players Edition Anniversary with String-Thru Bigsby. It's a guitar that honors its inspirational past while remaining firmly rooted in the future of music. Engineered for optimum performance and responsiveness it reacts instantly to your every musical move, not just earning, but demanding a place in your sonic arsenal.
A thinner, 2.25” Maple body provides maximum comfort during long sets while the innovative Gretsch “ML” bracing allows the guitar to retain that rich, full hollow body sound. The standard U shaped Maple neck with a 24.6" scale bears a 12” radius fretboard with 22 durable medium jumbo frets for a memorable playing experience that works with any fret-hand style.
A pair of High Sensitive Filter’Tron humbucking pickups responds to every note dynamically - snarling or purring according to how hard you strike the strings. The control complement - separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup switching, no-load master tone and also a master volume - allows for near-infinite tonal variations.
The all-new Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil caps add smooth vintage tone while the treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down. A pinned “rocking” bar bridge reacts in concert with the Bigsby B6CP vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the teflon-coated GraphTech TUSQ XL nut lets the strings slide freely, without binding in the slots. In a uniquely Gretsch touch, the Bigsby tailpiece is now string-through, making it quicker (and easier) to change strings as well as providing increased vibration transfer for enhanced sustain.
A finely tuned modern music machine, this guitar features the appointments Gretsch fans desire including 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 and 2 Tone Iridium Silver/Azure Metallic finish.
Comes with the deluxe hollow body hardshell case pictured. Made in Japan.*For your protection all purchases over $99 will be shipped signature required.
You are buying a high quality instrument made of wood. Each instrument goes thorough a pre-shipment inspection to ensure you are getting a great quality instrument. However, please keep in mind when instruments are shipped they can endure temperature changes as well as doing the "shipper shuffle" and therefore minor adjustments may be needed to set up the instrument to your personal preferences after receiving it.
Included in your shipment will be instructions on care and maintenance.
