Gretsch G6137TCB Panther Center-Block - Panther Black
Special Order

An Original Design That Celebrates 130 Years of Gretsch

The Gretsch G6137TCB Panther celebrates 130 years of Gretsch history. The real story here is the G6137TCB Panther's long spruce center block. Running the whole length of the body, this center block minimizes feedback caused by body resonance, letting you play louder and with more gain while keeping your amplifier under control. And this center block actually integrates with the bridge, enhancing vibrational transfer for snappier, brighter tone. If you dig Gretsch guitars, then you'll surely be impressed at the sound and feel of the Gretsch G6137TCB Panther.

Gretsch G6137TCB Panther Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Long spruce center block enhances your tone
  • Smooth vibrato action courtesy of Bigsby
  • Sweet vintage tone from HS FilterTron pickups
Long spruce center block enhances your tone

You get a lot of tonal bang for your buck with the Gretsch G6137TCB Panther, thanks to its long spruce center block. Running the full length of the body, the center block allows the otherwise hollowbody to resist resonant-frequency feedback. That means you can rock out louder with more gain, without your amplifier squealing out of control. Spruce is a snappy tonewood, too, and since the center block connects with the bridge, the note definition and clarity on the G6137TCB Panther are amazing.

Smooth vibrato action courtesy of Bigsby

Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby tailpiece adds to the G6137TCB Panther. It's particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends with the G6137TCB Panther, thanks to its Bigsby B6C vibrato tailpiece.

Sweet vintage tone from HS FilterTron pickups

The G6137TCB Panther packs a wide-ranging vintage-style voice, thanks to a pair of HS FilterTron humbucking pickups. These pickups sport larger magnets and pole screws, resulting in higher inductance, which means thicker tone. The bobbins are packed closer together and wound with less magnet wire, which means you don't lose as much high end as other humbuckers.

  • Semi-hollow guitar with large spruce center block

Smooth as Silk

I purchased my Gretsch Black Panther back in October and it's the only guitar i've been playing. It's smooth as silk and a real gem to play, best of all worlds, an exceptional semi-hollow guitar and style of music can be played on it. It came set up prefect and ready to play. I'm so glad I purchased my second Gretsch from Sweetwater.
