A solid performer in any playing situation, from the studio to the stage, the Players Edition Tennessee Rose with String-Thru Bigsby takes a classic Gretsch model and updates it with modern player-oriented features that provide maximum performance while retaining the original sound and style that made it famous. Amazing sound, superbly comfortable feel and gorgeous aesthetics combine for a standout instrument that's a wonderful addition to any guitar collection.

A pair of High Sensitive Filter'Tron humbucking pickups graces the laminated maple body, providing pristine high end, glassy midrange, robust low end and balanced harmonics for tone that blends seamlessly with other instruments. 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. The innovative Gretsch "ML" bracing is specifically voiced for this guitar, producing 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 tone control and master volume - allows for endless tonal variations. All new "Squeezebox" paper-in-oil capacitors add smooth vintage tone while the treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down. Highly expressive, the Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece and pinned "rocking" bar bridge combine with the GraphTech[reg] 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 modern music machine - from the Schaller[reg] locking tuning machines and "G Arrow" control knobs to the F Holes, gloss urethane finish and silver vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo. Hot-rodded for players who demand the best of the past and present, the Players Edition Tennessee Rose with String-Thru Bigsby is a pure powerhouse of sound. Includes a deluxe hardshell case.

This guitar is everything you'd expect from a top end Gretsch. Clear, articulate and harmonically rich. The fretwork is impeccable and the attention to detail is second to none. There are no flaws on the finish, and after a setup by L&M it plays perfectly. The thinner body compared to a 6120 is easier to play as well. The string through bigsby and locking tuners make string changes a breeze and I would highly recommend both. I knocked a point off for value since this is a premium guitar and you pay for that premium. One of the less expensive models will offer most of the playability for significantly less money. But if you can spend the extra money, and love the sound, feel and look of a Gretsch, I'd put this model on your short list.
