The world's greatest hollow body guitars just got even better. Designed for the working professional, Players Edition Hollow Body instruments preserve the authentic Gretsch sound and style while incorporating cutting-edge features for maximum power, comfort and versatility.

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

The FT-67 Filter'Tron humbucking pickups were designed to capture authentic vintage Gretsch voicing but with a more well-rounded tone for modern playing styles. This powerful pair of pickups provide open and pristine top-end chime, glassy midrange, robust low end and balanced harmonics for tone that blends seamlessly with other instruments. The innovative Gretsch "ML" bracing delivers huge hollow body sound from the comfortable 2.5"-deep maple body. The control complement -- separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup switching, no-load master tone and master volume -- allows for infinite tonal variations. The "Squeezebox" paper-in-oil capacitor adds smooth vintage tone while the treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down.

A 12"-radius rosewood read more fingerboard with rolled edges and 22 medium jumbo frets top a 24.6"-scale maple neck with a comfortably familiar standard "U"-shaped 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 providing increased vibration transfer for enhanced sustain.

A finely tuned modern music machine, this guitar features the vintage Anniversary appointments Gretsch fans desire -- from its two-tone finishes (Copper Metallic/Sahara Metallic with silver pickguard or Vintage White/Walnut Stain with a tortoise pickguard) to nickel hardware including Gotoh locking tuning machines and G-arrow control knobs to the white bound body and F-holes and striking pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays.

Designed to instill complete confidence from tailpiece to tuners, the G6118T Players Edition Anniversary Hollow Body with String-Thru Bigsby can be trusted on every song, every night for powerful sound, tonal flexibility and full control of that classic Gretsch power.
