Overview

In celebration of its 130th anniversary, Gretsch introduces a brand-new Professional Collection model-the G6137TCB Panther. It features a beautiful 1 ¾"-deep double-cutaway three-ply maple body with a 16" lower bout, arched top and back and elegant f holes. The centerpiece of the model is a long spruce center block.

The center block runs the entire length of the body and imparts several sonic advantages. First, it minimizes body-resonant feedback and creates a more "high gain-friendly" performance. Second, it's made of spruce, which produces a spirited, lively tone. Third, the center block itself is chambered at the lower bout to minimize weight. Fourth, the pinned wood bridge base extends over the sides of the center block about 5/8" on either side, transferring string-vibration energy to the two f-hole-vented body chambers to produce a full-bodied tone.

Other premium features include a three-piece maple neck, 12"-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and pearloid Neo-Classic "thumbnail" inlays, single-ply bound headstock with pearloid Gretsch logo, and dual High Sensitive Filter'Tron pickups. The guitar also has a top-mounted output jack, "G" arrow control knobs and chrome hardware, an Adjusto-Matic bridge with pinned rosewood base and Bigsby B6C tailpiece, Grover Sta-Tite tuners and Schaller strap locks. Deluxe hard-shell case included.

MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY
Gretsch® Instrument Limited Lifetime Warranty FMIC warrants your Gretsch brand instrument to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as it is owned by the original retail purchaser, except that pickups, switches, jacks, controls, all other electronic components, tuning machines, hardware, pickguards, plated surfaces, gig bags, cases and case hardware are warranted for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase.

Defective components that qualify for coverage under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at FMIC's discretion) without charge.

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6137TCB Black Panther Center Block*:

    This guitar has exceeded my expectations! The cool tone of gretsch cuts through the rest of the band with it's distinct sound yet doesn't take away from the overall goal. The guitar has great tone, great look, and great feel. I am loving playing it and plan to use it for many more years to come!!
