Incredible Gretsch tone and features you would usually only find on a Custom Shop guitar! The 6118T-120 celebrates the 120th anniversary of the Gretsch company. It was one of the first modern Gretsches to feature stock upgraded vintage correct features  like TV Jones pickups and correct body shape. The hollow body is made of laminated maple for good tone. The 24.6 inch scale maple neck features a 12 inch radius ebony fingerboard with 22 frets and thumbprint inlays. Dual USA made TV Jones Classic pickups dish out that great Gretsch sound. A Bigsby vibrato, bar bridge and Grover Sta-tite tuners round out the hardware. The finish is a unique 2 tone bamboo yellow/copper mist combo. This is a great recreation of an original 50s Annie with some nice, modern features.

This Gretsch plays great with a great feeling neck and nice action. The neck is straight and the action is low. The TV Jones pickups sound awesome. They offer a wide range of tones for a variety of music styles. Everything works as it should. This is a nice used guitar. It shows some hardware corrosion. Otherwise, it's clean showing light pick and clearcoat scratches and some light indents. Comes in original hardshell case and a pile of case candy.

There's nothing like the sound of a good Gretsch. Unfortunately, finding an original 50s or 60s model in nice, playable condition can be difficult. These new Gretsches are built great and really capture the tone and vibe of the originals. No longer available, the 6118T-120 is a rare sight these days. Here's a good chance to grab a nice one.
