Product Description

Engineered for optimum performance and responsiveness, the G6118T-LIV reacts instantly to your every musical move, not just earning, but demanding a place in your sonic arsenal. At the intersection of innovation and tribute you’ll find the G6118T-LIV Players Edition Anniversary with String-Thru Bigsby—a guitar that honors its inspirational past while remaining firmly rooted in the future of music.

A pair of High Sensitive Filter’Tron humbucking pickups responds to every note dynamically—snarling or purring according to how hard you strike the strings. The control complement—separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup switching, No-Load master tone and also a master volume—allows for near-infinite tonal variations. The all-new Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil caps add smooth vintage tone while the treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down. The standard “U”-shaped maple neck bears a 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 durable medium jumbo frets for a memorable playing experience that works with any fret-hand style. A pinned “rocking” bar bridge reacts in concert with the Bigsby B6CP vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the teflonimpregnated GraphTech Tusq XL nut lets the strings slide freely, without binding in the slots. A thinner, 2.25”body provides maximum comfort during long sets while the innovative Gretsch “ML” bracing allows the guitar to retain that rich, full hollow body sound. 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 finely tuned modern music machine, this guitar features the appointments Gretsch fans desire—nickel “G Arrow” control knobs, white binding with black purfling, gloss urethane finish, pearloid thumbnail inlays, charcoal grey vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo and Schaller locking tuning machines. Let loose the fury and power of rock with the G6118T-LIV Players Edition Anniversary with String-Thru Bigsby—big sound meets bold, brash style.

What is your opinion of this product?
I purchased by Gretsch G6118TLIV Anniversary with Bigsby trem' from American Musical. This is my first Gretsch (my arsenal generally consists of high-end Gibsons as a reference) ...I just don't prefer orange or green guitars, and I'd heard mixed reviews about the Korean/China made Gretsch's. This model is made in Japan ($2k'ish price point) and is absolutely outstanding! It is surprisingly versatile without a lot of feedback symptomatic of hollow body guitars. The no-load master tone and master volume electronics sound superb and are easy to use. It ships with 0.011 guage strings, but I put 0.010's on it with absolutely no issues. Action is great, sound is great, looks are great! No complaints at all. And yes, the Bigsby on this guitar is significantly easier to string than a classic Bigsby! This Gretsch is an outstanding choice if you want something better than the Asian Gretsch, but not quite the price of an American made Gretsch.
