Factory Spec & information below:
With the G6134-CS is special guitar from Gretsch Senior Master Builder Stephen Stern. Based on the popular Penguin Single-Cut model, it bridges the gap between vintage and modernity, between classic sound and smooth playability thanks to carefully selected details.
For the body of the Gretsch G6134-CS, selected mahogany is used which, with its hollow chambers, contributes significantly to the warm basic character and quick response of the penguin. The body is crowned by a maple top with a gentle curvature that provides a pleasant support for the forearm and hand.
A special feature is the glued maple neck, which has been adopted from the Gretsch White Falcon. Accordingly, compared to the regular models, this G6134-CS has a 25.5" scale, which results in a high definition of all strings and gives the sound a characteristic snap. With the "Boat Neck" profile, which connects a round'C' profile with a slightly indicated'V' on the longitudinal axis, the Gretsch G6134-CS Penguin has a high playing comfort.
As a tribute to modern playing techniques, the exquisite ebony fretboard has a compound radius that rises from 12" in the low register to 16" in the high register. Thus even complex chords can be grasped without effort, while fast solos are easy to play by hand and the sound does not die off even with wide bends.
