Gretsch Guitars

Description

The G6118T Players Edition Anniversary Hollowbody was designed for the working professional seeking maximum power, comfort and versatility. Engineered for optimum performance and responsiveness, the Players Edition hollowbody is equipped with FT-67 Filter'Tron humbucking pickups which were designed to capture authentic vintage Gretsch voicing but with a more well-rounded tone for modern playing styles. This powerful pair of pickups provides open and pristine top-end chime, glassy midrange, robust low end and balanced harmonics for tone that blends seamlessly with other instruments. Separate bridge and neck volume controls, a 3-way pickup toggle switch and no-load master tone and master volume allow for infinite tonal variations. A "Squeezebox" paper-in-oil capacitor adds smooth vintage tone while the treble bleed circuit retains all of your guitars tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down.

A rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges tops a maple neck with a comfortably familiar U profile for fluidly easy playing. The Bigsby B6CP vibrato tailpiece and Adjusto-Matic bridge combine with the Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut for maximum tuning stability. The Bigsby tailpiece is string-through, making it quicker (and easier) to change strings, as well as to provide increased vibration transfer for enhanced sustain. A finely tuned modern music machine, this guitar also features vintage Anniversary appointments like Gotoh locking tuners, G-arrow control knobs and striking pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays.

Gretsch's 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. This warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized Gretsch Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein. IMPORTANT: PLEASE RETAIN YOUR ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, AS IT IS YOUR PROOF OF PURCHASE VALIDATING THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. FMIC has established a network of independent Authorized Service Centers for warranty service. The Gretsch Dealer from whom you purchased your instrument may also be authorized for warranty service and should be the first point of contact when service of any kind is required for your Gretsch instrument. To receive warranty service, return the complete instrument to an Authorized Service Center, with your sales receipt as proof of purchase, during the applicable warranty period. Defective components that qualify for coverage under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at FMIC's discretion) without charge. Remedies beyond normal service repair of any Gretsch instrument require both an evaluation and confirmation of the defect and a direct recommendation to FMIC from an Authorized Service Center for alternative considerations. All transportation, insurance and freight charges associated with warranty service and repairs on Gretsch instruments are the responsibility of the purchaser, as is any service initiated for the purpose of customizing setups or adjustments beyond factory specifications. Initial standard setup and adjustment of the instrument and its components at the time of purchase are considered normal Dealer product preparation, and are not covered by this warranty.
