Gretch adds new limited models for 2021 with the G6136T Limited Edition Falcon with Bigsby, G6119TG-62RW-LTD Limited Edition ‘62 Rosewood Tenny with Bigsby and Gold Hardware, and the G6134T Limited Edition Penguin Koa with Bigsby.
Gretch Limited Edition models elevate our most celebrated designs with striking finishes and upgraded features and appointments. Stunning in style and sound, these small batch runs are designed for players seeking a more individualized edge.
The Gretch Falcon is one of the most desired guitars in production today, and the all-new G6136T Limited Edition Falcon with Bigsby in an enchanting Two-Tone Copper/Sahara Metallic takes it to the next level.
This magnificent bird features a pair of TV Jones Ray Butts Ful-Fidelity pickups that generate powerful tone and unparalleled dynamic, as well as 1959 trestle bracing for that huge hollow body sound. The control complement – separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way toggle pickup switching, no-load master tone and master volume – allows for infinite tonal variations. The new Gretch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil caps add smooth vintage tone while the treble bleed circuit lets the guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down.
A 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and striking mother of pearl Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays tops a maple neck with a comfortably familiar standard “U”-shaped profile for fluidly easy playing. The Bigsby B6CP vibrato tailpiece and pinned “rocking” bar bridge with ebony base combine with the bone nut for maximum tuning stability. 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 bold visual and sonic statement, the G6136T presents total sophistication—from the Grover Imperial™ locking tuning machines and jeweled G-arrow control knobs to the silver sparkle bound neck, body and F-holes, gloss urethane finish, chrome hardware and silver vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch and Falcon logos.
Available February 2021.
A nod to the early era of rock ‘n’ roll, the G6119TG-62RW-LTD Limited Edition ‘62 Rosewood Tenny with Bigsby and Gold Hardware is a solid performer with the standout sound and stunning style that have made Gretsch a household name. Highly resonant with rosewood top, back and sides, the unique voice of this guitar cuts through any mix, standing out from the crowd with That Great Gretsch Sound:
A pair of rich-sounding TV Jones TV Classic™ humbucking pickups creates unmistakable vintage snap and guttural growl with lively response, reflecting the natural voice of the guitar. Parallel tone bars connect the top and back of this guitar for authentic vintage tone. Traditional Gretsch controls—individual pickup volume controls, master volume, standby toggle switch and the classic three-position tone toggle switch—allows for blending and shaping the pickups’ sound for countless tonal variations. The new Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil capacitors generate incredibly silky vintage high end. A “rocking” bar bridge with pinned rosewood base reacts in tandem with the Bigsby B6G vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the vintage-style bone nut lets the strings slide freely without binding in the slots. The standard “U”-shaped maple neck bears a 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 vintage small frets for a classic playing experience that works with any style.
An exquisite instrument inspired by one of guitar’s greatest eras, the G6119TG-62RW-LTD Limited Edition ‘62 Rosewood Tenny with Bigsby and Gold Hardware features the classic aesthetics true Gretsch fans love—gold G-arrow control knobs and Grover Sta-Tite open-back tuning machines, aged white binding with black purfling, aged pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays, rosewood headcap, durable gloss urethane finish and black pickguard with Gretsch logo.
Available March 2021.
The G6134T Limited Edition Penguin Koa with Bigsby offers a tastefully elegant take on the rarest of Gretsch birds.
The Penguin’s chambered mahogany body with arched figured koa top captures harmonic richness by letting air resonate between the top and body for livelier and more articulate tone, while a pair of TV Jones® TV Classic pickups beautifully project bright, twangy notes with a hint of growl similar to late-1950s Filter’Trons. The result is an extraordinary voice ideal for distinctive rock ‘n’ roll licks, chiming country rhythms or articulate rockabilly riffs. A three-position pickup toggle switch, individual pickup volume controls, master volume and three-position tone toggle switch open up endless tonal possibilities.
Its premium features also include a set mahogany neck, 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, Bigsby B3 tailpiece, rocking bar bridge with pinned ebony base, Grover Imperial™ tuners and bone nut.
Richly appointed, this limited edition beauty is decked out in a Natural finish with matching figured koa headstock, tortoiseshell body and neck binding, mother of pearl Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays, jeweled arrow control knobs, tortoise pickguard and gold hardware.
Available April 2021.
