Gretsch 125th Anniversary Products
In 1883 Friedrich Gretsch established the Gretsch musical instrument business in a small shop in Brooklyn and a heritage was born. Over the past 125 years, Gretsch Guitars & Drums has blossomed to develop a musical legacy featuring industry innovations, a hall of fame endorsement roster and, of course, "That Great Gretsch Sound."
Gretsch 125th Anniversary Guitar Feature - G6118T-125
Two key individuals in the Gretsch story recently designed a new scalloped bracing specifically voiced for Gretsch guitars. The new "ML" bracing—which stands for Gretsch guitar designers Masao Terada and Mike Lewis—makes its debut on the 125th "Annie". This construction synchronizes the vibration of the top and back, with increased acoustical openness in tone. Accentuating the tone of the new ML bracing are a pair of TV Jones® Power’Tron™ pickups, pinned rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and a Bigsby® B6C vibrato tailpiece. Happy Anniversary indeed!
