Tailor-made for Modern Guitarists

The Gretsch G6118T-SGR Players Edition Anniversary hollowbody electric guitar pays homage to the past, but is packed with features that will appeal to modern guitarists. You'll love the open-sounding snap provided by this guitar's arched maple body. A pair of High Sensitive Filter'Tron humbucking pickups snarl and purr, adding a robust quality to this guitar's tone. A Bigsby tailpiece delivers that killer twang we all crave. The Gretsch G6118T-SGR Players Edition Anniversary hollowbody electric guitar delivers modern performance and a playing experience that's pure vintage Gretsch.

Gretsch G6118T-SGR Hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Arched maple body provides your tone with excellent definition
  • Pristine tone from High Sensitive Filter'Tron humbuckers
  • Two volume controls + one tone control = exceptional sonic flexibility
  • Bigsby tailpiece yields smooth vibrato action
Arched maple body provides your tone with excellent definition

Maple has to be one of the most lively, bright, and colorful tonewoods out there, which is exactly why Gretsch decided to make their Gretsch G6118T-SGR Players Edition Anniversary almost entirely out of this wonderful wood. At Sweetwater, we've found that this hollowbody's arched body yields a wonderfully snappy, open tone that, when combined with the pristine sound of its High Sensitive Filter'Tron humbuckers, sounds great in any situation.

Pristine tone from High Sensitive Filter'Tron humbuckers

The Gretsch G6118T-SGR Players Edition Anniversary packs a wide-ranging voice, thanks to a pair of High Sensitive Filter'Tron humbuckers. These pickups deliver a broad range of tones with clear high end, glassy midrange, robust low end, and balanced harmonics.

Two volume controls + one tone control = exceptional sonic flexibility

It's easy to stereotype the Gretsch G6118T-SGR Players Edition Anniversary until you play it, and then you realize you can pull off a lot of tonal tricks with it. With a volume control for each pickup, you can create your perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control lets you fine-tune your sound once you have the pickups dialed in. And thanks to the master volume control, you can take your tube amp from clean to growling without changing the balance between your pickups. Of course, you'll get sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually, but there's a lot of territory to cover when you combine them.

Bigsby tailpiece yields smooth vibrato action

Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby-style tailpiece adds to the Gretsch G6118T-SGR Players Edition Anniversary. Based on the original design created by Paul A. Bigsby, this Bigsby Licensed tailpiece requires next to no effort to use, making it particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends.

Gretsch G6118T-SGR Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Hollowbody electric guitar with period-correct specs
  • Arched maple body delivers a deliciously snappy, open tone
  • High Sensitive Filter'Tron humbuckers yield pristine tone
  • Highly playable standard U-shaped maple neck with rosewood fingerboard
  • 2 volume controls and 1 tone control create exceptional sonic flexibility
  • Bigsby tailpiece provides smooth vibrato action
The Gretsch G6118T-SGR is a modern hollowbody electric guitar that's pure vintage Gretsch!

Gretsch hollow body g6118t sgr

This guitar is much more than I expected, one of the most versatile guitars I,ve owned. It,s very playable and suitable for every genre of music a player would want. The volumn and tone pot,s are very smooth and responsive.,no sudden unanticipated gains. Well worth the investment As always the sales and service tech,s were great, answering all my question over several phone call,s.. I could not ask for better service. Frankly speaking I purchased mine in smoke green and am impressed enough to purchase another in white. Thank,s Sweetwater I am getting a lot of play time on my new Gretsch
