Overview

Take a ride uptown in style and plug it in! Reminiscent of the early Synchromatics of the 1940s, this archtop acoustic/electric has a spruce top, maple sides and back, maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard. The G100CE features a Gretsch pickup, separate volume and tone knobs, chromatic tailpiece, aged pearloid block inlays, vintage headstock logo, and compensated bridge. The 40's design is simple and elegant, and you'll be unlikely to find anything like it in the market at this price.

Perfect for the Gretsch player looking for a no-nonsense, the G100CE guitar is a vibe-loaded acoustic that allows you to plug it in and won't break the bank! It's the couch guitar you can take to the streets.

The Synchromatic's Gretsch pickup offers flexibility and tone. The chromatic bridge and tailpiece provide balanced string tension and enhanced bass response. The art deco design is vintage cool!

Case sold separately.

    Smooth as Silk

    By austin derose

    from Knoxville, TN

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G100CE Synchromatic Archtop Electric Guitar:

    I had always wanted a Gretsch, but put off getting one in favor of other band equipment. I finally made the leap and ordered the G100CE from Guitar Center in April 2012. It sounded great right out of the box. No fret buzz, low action, and deep resonance. I was looking for something that would have an acoustic blues sound when needed but also take to some distortion as well. This guitar does the trick. Quality of build is wonderful and electronics are solid. I was worried about the feedback coming from this guitar (especially with effects) during band practice, but it was not an issue during the actual show. Overall, I highly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for versatility of sound, killer looks, and a wonderful playing guitar.

    Better Late Than Never

    By Randy

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G100CE Synchromatic Archtop Electric Guitar:

    Back ordered for several months. Not GCs fault..popular guitar, Gretsch had to fill the orders. Well worth the wait. Mellow acoustic sound, especially when tuned down. Warm bridge pick up, works great with a little tube amp...clean to a little crunch, great with a slide. I began playing it right out of the box...just a quick tune and it was ready to go. Plus you can't beat the classic look.
