Tim Armstrong's Signature Axe Takes No Prisoners

Loud and obstreperous, the Gretsch G5191 Tim Armstrong Electromatic hollowbody guitar bears the personal stamp of Rancid's iconic founder. Enormous tone resonates from deep within the G5191's bound, single-cutaway hollowbody. Gretsch has detailed the G5191 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. If you're in the market for a 6-string carnage machine, you've found it. The Gretsch G5191 Tim Armstrong Signature Electromatic Hollowbody takes no prisoners.

A Gretsch just like Tim Armstrong's

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, and a harp tailpiece complete this menacing package.

Black Top Filter'Tron Humbuckers for rich, resonant tone

A naturally warm and woody sound is just what you'd want out of a hollowbody guitar. That's where the G5191 Tim Armstrong Signature Electromatic's Black Top Filter'Tron humbuckers come in. Far from your typical humbuckers, Gretsch's specially designed Black Top Filter'Tron humbuckers actually provide you with incredibly clear highs (preserving your attack sound), without sounding brittle or flaky. The result is a well-rounded tone that gives you a ton of character, plus exceptional dynamic expression.

Powerful controls for tonal versatility

The G5191 Tim Armstrong Signature Electromatic packs individual tone and volume controls for each humbucking pickup, plus a master volume control. Use the individual controls to fine-tune your tone, then adjust the master volume to hit your amplifier just right. Factor in the three-way pickup selector, and you'll see there's an incredibly wide tonal range to explore with the G5191 Tim Armstrong Signature Electromatic.

Gretsch G5191 Tim Armstrong Signature Electromatic Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
