Performance led design
The Gretsch G6118T-LIV Players Edition Anniversary Guitar is built to a hollow body design to establish a lightweight playing feel, without compromising on tonal quality. Crafted from laminated maple, the body resonates freely to generate substantial energy and a powerful output. In keeping with the performance-led design, the body is a mere 2.25-inches, guaranteeing maximum comfort, whilst Gretsch's innovative ML bracing upholds integrity and stability.
The top has been finished in a two-tone ivory paintjob, and the back and sides in charcoal metallic. White binding with black purfling marks the edge between the top and side finishes. The upper bout is protected by a charcoal grey plexi pickguard to prevent unwanted nicks and scrapes from affecting the finish.
Fast playing neck
Fitted to the body is a maple neck, which has been shaped to the standard "U" neck profile to provide comfort. A slender yet resilient coating of gloss urethane prevents unwanted stickiness for impeding movement along the neck. Single-ply white binding extends along the neck and around the headstock. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium jumbo frets that are adorned with neo-classic "thumbnail" position inlays to guide your way.
High Sensitive Filter'Tron pickups
The Gretsch G6118T-LIV is equipped with a pair of High Sensitive Filter'Tron humbucking pickups, which respond to your playing style dynamically, and precisely. Whether you're laying down sweet fingerpicked notes, and thrashing out some chunky power chords, you can rest assured that the Filter’Tron have all bases covered. Control comes in the form of separate neck and bridge volume controls, as well as a master tone control. The three-position pickup selector switch maximises the tonal variety on offer, and whatever style of music that you play, this beauty is a versatile as you could need it to be.
Whether you're an amateur or a professional, the G6118T-LIV Players Edition is equipped for any and every gig. The body is home to a rocking bar bridge with rosewood base, which is paired with a Bigsby B6CP tailpiece. Gretsch have made the Bigsby string-through, making it easier, and quicker to change strings, as well as enhancing sustain. The headstock is home to Gotoh locking tuning machines, which uphold string tuning with precision.
The Gretsch G6118T-LIV Players Edition Anniversary Guitar in 2-Tone Lotus Ivory/Charcoal Metallic is perfect for the gigging guitarist who strives for perfection, and likes to perform without limits.
