Modern Gretsch Guitars

NGD Gretsch G6118-T 135th Anniversary Edition

1

Once I saw this guitar I immediately got GAS for it. I picked it up today from my local dealer (Russo Music) for a fantastic price. The looks are superb and the play-ability lends itself to the ease of fretting chords like no other guitar I own. Did I say the looks are superb :D

The tone the HS FilterTrons have makes me drool. I can go from the Gretsch twang to a sweet crunchy rock tone. Back to playing the new axe!!

Nice score! Love the gold color and the unbound fretboard!

Played one of these in a store recently; beautiful guitar; loved everything about it. I'm not generally a fan of trestle bracing, but this one was an exception. Congratulations!

I love the colors too but particularly the unique colored surrounds that match the guard.

Yep, Russo Music. I was there about 1:30pm or so. Took 30 minutes to find parking, got the 15 minute spot, ran in, picked it up and ran out.. LOL

I always wanted a gold top, juts never thought it would be a Gretsch. This color Casino Gold is supposed to be new for 2018 and I can tell you it is a winner. I am a fan of darker backs so the Pro model was my choice versus the Electromatic. Plus I wanted the HS FilterTron pickups since I feel they are very usable in most music I play.

You were in Asbury Park; I went to Hamilton. They have a parking lot there. Good people and merchandise in both stores but as you pointed out, parking is a challenge in AP. Beautiful guitar.

Im partial to Annie,s myself,and that color combo is amazingly beautiful. Whoever made that color decision over at Gretsch did an amazing job choosing those 2 colors. HS Filtertrons ,make it a real Rock N Roll machine.

Congrats ,that's gorgeous!

The jury's still out on the matching surrounds for me though.

The pickup rings do not stand out unless you are in the right light. So I think you would approve !

17

So freakin' Yummy! Congrats!

Thanks everyone for the nice words about my new Proline! There is something to say about Japanese made guitars. My Yamaha semi hollow is made in Japan and is perfection like the Gretsch.

Wow that's a great looker, I agree the Japenese Pro lines are a good league. I have a 6119T Players edition, shallower body and H bracing and Filtertrons. It's got quite a different sound to my old 6119 which had a acoustic resonance a bit like my 6120 DSV. I'm still trying to set the filtertrons, the adjustable screw head pole pieces had been messed up from the factory setting. Yours look as they should be and the bar bridge is a lot better.Enjoy.

I do have to drop the bass side of the pickup (not pole pieces) about 3/32 or so. The low E and A are really loud

22

I got the Gretsch Arrow Ruby knobs in and they go perfect with the guitar.

Very cool guitar. Congrats
