Reinvigorated for modern players who demand the pinnacle of performance and tone from their guitar, the Players Edition Country Gentlemen with String-Thru Bigsby is packed with the sound and style that made the original a classic. With updated, performance-oriented features this instrument is destined to become an indispensible part of your guitar collection.
Dual High Sensitive Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups grace the laminated maple body, providing pristine high end, glassy midrange, robust low end and balanced harmonics for tone that blends seamlessly with other instruments. The innovative Gretsch “ML” bracing is specifically voiced for the thinner, 2.25” body and produces distinct tone by synchronizing the top and back vibrations for harmonious tone without clashing overtones. The control complement—separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup switching, no-load master tone and master volume—allows for near-infinite tonal variations. The all-new Gretsch® Squeezebox paper-in-oil caps add smooth vintage tone while the treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down. A 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and striking pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays tops a maple neck with a comfortably familiar standard “U”-shaped profile for fluidly easy playing. Highly expressive, the Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece and pinned “rocking” bar bridge combine with the GraphTech® Tusq XL nut for stable tuning. In a uniquely Gretsch touch, the Bigsby tailpiece is now string-through, making it quicker (and easier) to change strings as well as providing increased vibration transfer for enhanced sustain.
A treat for the eyes and ears, this guitar is a highly-tuned music machine—from the shining gold Gotoh® die-cast locking tuning machines and gold “G Arrow” control knobs to the F Holes, gloss urethane finish and gold vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo. Engineered for today’s player who requires the most from their instrument, the Players Edition Country Gentlemen with String-Thru Bigsby updates authentic classic Gretsch style and sound with modern innovations. Includes a deluxe hardshell case.
Reminiscent of the early Synchromatic™ of the 1940s, the G100CE Synchromatic Cutaway acoustic-electric features an arched spruce top with parallel tone bar bracing, body binding, F Holes, three-piece maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with extra-broad frets and vintage-style pearloid wide-block inlays, single-coil Gretsch® pickup, pickguard-mounted volume and tone controls, ’40s-era Synchromatic headstock shape and vintage-style pearloid Gretsch headstock logo inlay, height-adjustable Synchromatic bridge and chromatic tailpiece.
