Gretsch G6118T 125th Anniversary Hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • A very special Gretsch
  • New bracing
  • Great-sounding features

A very special Gretsch
In celebration of the 125th anniversary of Gretsch, a very special instrument was created that is sure to be an instant classic. Combining time-tested Gretsch elements from the past with new features, the 125th Anniversary model has an ultra-rare Jaguar Tan top, with metallic gold back and sides. The body is made of three-play laminated maple for the utmost resonance and tone.

New bracing
Two key individuals in the Gretsch story recently designed a new scalloped bracing specifically voiced for Gretsch guitars. The new “ML” bracing-which stands for Gretsch guitar designers Masao Terada and Mike Lewis-makes its debut on the 125th “Annie”. This construction synchronizes the vibration of the top and back, with increased acoustical openness in tone.

Great-sounding features
Accentuating the tone of the new ML bracing are a pair of TV Jones® Power’Tron pickups, pinned rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic bridge and a Bigsby® B6C vibrato tailpiece.
