In 1958, Gretsch introduced the 6118 Anniversary model to celebrate 75 years in the musical instrument manufacturing business. Today, that classic green Gretsch Anniversary model from over 50 years ago is back and ready to rock! This Double Annie retains that pure vintage Gretsch tone and style while incorporating other features including a Bigsby B6C vibrato tailpiece, a Space Control bridge, and a pair of Filter'Tron pickups.

Made from laminated maple, the Gretsch G6118T Anniversary model features a fully hollow body and shows off that legendary green plexi pickguard and Two-Tone Smoke Green finish that was inspired by the two-tone green finish seen on classic Cadillac models from that era. The maple neck carries a bound ebony fretboard with Gretsch's famed thumbnail inlays while the headstock bears a black overlay and a chrome anniversary plate.

Outiftted with a pair of High Sensitive Filter'Tron dual-coil pickups, the G6118T Anniversary will deliver all of that twang and jangle that Gretsch guitars are famous for. Not only are these pickups designed to combat the unwanted noise and electrical hum that's typically associated with single-coil pickups, but they add a nice warmth to your sound while giving you a substantial increase in both sustain and output. The electronics control layout on the G6118T Anniversary model include independent Volume controls to fine tune the volume of each pickup, a Master Volume control, a 3-way pickup selector switch and Gretsch's 3-position Master Tone switch so you can dial in your desired sound.

The Gretsch G6118T Anniversary model comes equipped with premium chrome-plated hardware including a set of Grover Sta-Tite die-cast open-geared tuning machines and an ebony-based Space Control Roller bridge paired with a Bigsby B6C vibrato tailpiece. Ships inside of a deluxe hardshell case.

    Comments about Gretsch G6118T Anniversary Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

    Absolutely in love with this instrument. I have a wide range of guitars: Fender Tele and Strat, Gibson Les Paul Studio, Epiphone DOT, Washburn G10-V, PRS Swamp Ash Special and DGT Standard.

    These are all great guitars. but I am really taken with the Gretsch. A superb addition to the stable. Very pleased with it overall. I have never had a MIJ guitar and was a little leary about it. I know it is new, but it has no flaws at all. Workmanship, fit and finish, sound - all superb. No remorse at all. Fell in love with it immediately.

      Comments about Gretsch G6118T Anniversary Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

      just got mine and it is amazing ill be keeping my strat tuned tone a half step just to give me a reason to keep playing it and put my new gretsch down. This is no tin can and if you can get a significantly better tone out of another guitar id be buying that one. you have to remember no guitar is perfect even expensive ones otherwise we would all own the same guitar you cant be so overly critical that you dont even enjoy such a great guitar. make sure you read the manual this is not a childs toy or a guitar out of a $250 doller guitar + amp package it is a proffessional guitar, if you do so i promise this guitar will turn you into a hurmit and the hardest part of the process is waiting for it to arrive and yes it is hard

          A tin can and a string would have a better tone than this thing. I always wanted a Gretsch and I finally got one , this hunk of junk. My advice keep it moving it looks nice on the wall that's about it.

          Comments about Gretsch G6118T Anniversary Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

          "I purchased this guitar about 3 months ago, so I've had a while to make sure it was quality (make sure the neck wouldn't warp all of a sudden). Let me tell you something, this guitar can ROCK! it can get the Rockabilly twang if you need it to, and I can still get a nice jazzy feel out of the neck pick up when it's called for.[...] a perfect 10!"
