A solid performer in any playing situation, from the studio to the stage, the Players Edition Tennessee Rose with String-Thru Bigsby takes a classic Gretsch model and updates it with modern player-oriented features that provide maximum performance while retaining the original sound and style that made it famous. Amazing sound, superbly comfortable feel and gorgeous aesthetics combine for a standout instrument that’s a wonderful addition to any guitar collection.
A pair of High Sensitive Filter’Tron humbucking pickups graces the laminated maple body, providing pristine high end, glassy midrange, robust low end and balanced harmonics for tone that blends seamlessly with other instruments. A 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and striking pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays tops a maple neck with a comfortably familiar standard “U”-shaped profile for fluidly easy playing. The innovative Gretsch “ML” bracing is specifically voiced for this guitar, producing distinct tone by synchronizing the top and back vibrations for harmonious tone without clashing overtones.
The control complement—separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup switching, No Load tone control and master volume—allows for endless tonal variations. All new “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil capacitors add smooth vintage tone while the treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down.
Highly expressive, the Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece and pinned “rocking” bar bridge combine with the GraphTech Tusq XL nut for stable tuning. 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 treat for the eyes and ears, this guitar is a highly-tuned modern music machine—from the Schaller locking tuning machines and “G Arrow” control knobs to the F Holes, gloss urethane finish and silver vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo. Includes a deluxe hardshell case.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6119T Tennessee Rose with Bigsby Hollowbody Electric Guitar:
I have been playing the guitar since 1961 and I've owned many guitars. Currently I own and play: an Epiphone Casino purchased new in 1963; a Gretsch Country Gentleman purchased new in 1965, and; a Gibson ES-345TDC-SV purchased new in 1966. I've had other guitars all bought new and since sold including one custom made arch top.
I received the Tennessee Rose about a week ago and have played it a few hours each day. Simply put, this is a great sounding, great looking guitar. It arrived in perfect condition and correctly set-up. I ran it through two amps: a Polytone Mini Brute and a Fender Twin. I play mostly chord melody and the guitar has a full voiced mellow sound that remained constant through the neck pickup's volume range. Using both pickups the guitar has a clean rockabilly funk that is crisp and clean.
