It gets everything from traditional biting Gretsch tones to colorful fat and thick sonic blasts!
The Gretsch G5135PS Patrick Vaughn Stump Signature CVT Electric Guitar comes from the heart and soul of guitarist and frontman, Patrick Stump of the award winning, multi-platinum selling band Fall Out Boy. The vision Patrick had for the STUMP-O-MATIC Electromatic was a versatile solidbody guitar capable of discharging not only classic biting Gretsch tones but also an array of thick, fat, colorful, bombastic sonic blasts at the flick of a switch. It took the genius mind of Tom "TV" Jones to develop the circuit design that brought Patrick's dream guitar to life.
The singing rich sustain of the Gretsch STUMP-O-MATIC Electromatic Guitar comes from the set-neck, string-through-body design and 3 Mega'Tron pickups. The special 2-position rotary switch allows you to keep things traditional or you may choose to dial in the middle pickup in multiple combination settings that includes having all 3 pickups on at the same time.
And if that isn't enough, rapidly manipulating the STUMP-O-MATIC kill switch machinegun-style while the guitar is engaged in full throttle screaming feedback may cause some to duck for cover. A pewter paint job with strategically placed black body stripes makes the Gretsch Patrick Vaughn
Stump STUMP-O-MATIC CVT a must-have in your guitar arsenal.
