In celebration of the 125th anniversary of Gretsch and a legacy that has lasted five decades, the tradition of the anniversary model continues. To commemorate this historic event, a very special electric guitar was created that is sure to be an instant classic. Combining time-tested Gretsch elements from the past with new features, the 125th Anniversary G6118T model has a Lacquer Finished ultra rare Jaguar Tan top, with metallic gold back and sides. The body is made of three-ply laminated maple for the utmost resonance and tone.
Two key individuals in the Gretsch story recently designed a unique scalloped bracing specifically voiced for Gretsch guitars. The ML bracing, which stands for Gretsch guitar designers Masao Terada and Mike Lewis, makes its debut on the 125th "Annie." This construction synchronizes the vibration of the top and back, with increased acoustical openness in tone. Accentuating the tone of the ML bracing are a pair of TV Jones Power'Tron pickups, pinned rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic bridge and a Bigsby B6C vibrato tailpiece.
