Product Description

Tim Armstrong has made his sonic signature with '90s punk rock darlings Rancid -- and now, with the Gretsch G519NK Tim Armstrong Electromatic hollowbody left-handed electric guitar, you can harness the upbeat enthusiasm of Armstrong's style and tone. This enticing axe features a pair of sonic-slicing "Black Top" Filter'Tron humbuckers housed in a resonating maple single-cutaway hollow body, a maple neck, a rosewood fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets, secure knurled Strap Retainer knobs, lustrous gold hardware, a rosewood-based Adjusto-matic bridge, and a stylish harp tailpiece.

Radiant Maple Hollowbody Resonance

Your Gretsch G519BK features a vibrant and warm maple hollowbody. Maple is a popular wood for bodies because of its snappy and bright character. Your tones will come through with consistency and clarity -- perfect for those Armstrong-style aggressive and quick strumming patterns. This axe's single-cutaway shape rests comfortably against your body, making moving around on stage a breeze.

One-piece Maple Neck

Spanning the length of 22 jumbo frets is your hollowbody's bright and comfy maple neck. This appendage features a smooth rosewood fingerboard that's inviting to the touch, and a respectable action allows you to play expediently for snappy leads and gripping licks. The zero fret on this axe leaves room for a wider range of string gauge choices, and provides a more consistently fretted sound to your open notes.

Two "Black Top" Filter'Tron Humbucking Pickups

The humbuckers on this axe are perfect for a super-present and in-your-face rock tone. These two pickups work magic -- capturing the full-bodied sound of this axe's maple hollowbody, and projecting a signal full of aggressive and poignant color. Your neck humbucker takes in a little more body and mid frequencies, while your bridge humbucker brings a little more grit and edge to your playing.

A Punk Axe with Slick Looks

Aside from bringing the rock, the G519BK is also a sleek axe to wear. With its cool single-cutaway shape, spiffy golden hardware, stylish single-ply "F"-holes, and secure rosewood-based Adjusto-matic bridge and harp tailpiece, this Armstrong-approved Gretsch really seals the deal in the arena of wicked tones and gnarly threads. Shoulder this axe and get ready to leap towards destinations unknown -- whether you're playing punk or psychobilly.

Product Description

Punk rock war-lord, Tim Armstrong makes no apologies that the music radiating from his soul at times can be loud & ferocious. His guitar tone alone has become as infamous as his world renown persona. Gretsch is proud to introduce the G5191BK Tim Armstrong Signature Electromatic hollow body guitar. A big sound resonates from the parallel tone bars and sound post mounted under the top of the 17" wide body, which has a harp tailpiece and a pair of "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups for maximum sustain and tuning stability. Grover tuners, big block fretboard inlays and gold-plated hardware set against the ominous flat black urethane finish are a recipe to incite your senses to euphoria. This version of the Tim Armstrong G5191BK is built for left-handed players like Tim himself.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Lefty Guitar"
Overall: This guitar feels good, plays good and looks good. And most of all it is a left-handed guitar :).... I originally was shipped the right-handed by mistake along with the wrong case but ZZOUNDS took care of it efficiently. Only thing is you can't get a LEFTY hard-shell case. They gave me the part # and I had to find someplace else to order it, but the guitar and Price was well worth it. I am certainly going to be shopping here again.
Style of Music: I like working on blues, rock, alternative rock, jazz. A wide variety of music that is challenging.
