Tim Armstrong's Signature Axe Takes No Prisoners

Great news - you can own punk godfather Tim Armstrong's signature axe! Loud and obstreperous, the Gretsch G5191 Tim Armstrong Electromatic hollowbody guitar bears the personal stamp of Rancid's iconic founder. Ginormous tone resonates from deep within the G5191's bound, single-cutaway hollowbody. Parallel tone bar bracing and a sound post ensure this guitar will survive the wildest of stage antics. Bound f holes and gold-plated hardware lend an elegant - if incongruous - touch to this purveyor of sonic frenzy.

Gretsch has detailed this guitar according to Mr. Armstrong's personal guitar preferences. You get a one-piece fast-action maple neck, fitted with a white graphite nut and a bound rosewood fingerboard with acrylic block inlays. Belligerent tone belches from twin "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups bedecked with gold-plated bezels. A three-position pickup switch, bound headstock with pearloid Gretsch inlay and Armstrong's signature on the truss rod cover, Grover tuners, Adjusto-Matic bridge, harp tailpiece, and ominous flat black finish complete this menacing package.

If you're in the market for a 6-string carnage machine, you've found it. The Gretsch Tim Armstrong Signature Electromatic Hollowbody takes no prisoners.

Gretsch g5191 Tim Armstrong

If your into Punk, Elvis, or Ted Nugent this is your Guitar. It's very easy to hit clean and crisp chords, it plays like butter. I bought a B6 Bigsby for it and was concerned if I was going to hurt the quality of the sound. But, it just as clean and concise with it's delivery as it was without the Bigsby, if not better. I like the sound it gives as much as a Gibson Byrdland with it's own unique punch. The best bang for your buck if your looking for a great mid priced Guitar.

Great guitar for the money

I was impressed right out of the box. I was a skeptic of overseas built guitars, but this one is well-built, and detail was taken to both finish and fit. It's been well over 10 years since my last guitar purchase, and didn't believe that overseas guitars was of the same quality as US built, but this one is. Money well spent this time !!
