Master built by Stephen Stern, this G6118t is a stunning instrument and one for collectors and players alike.
This is a rare opportunity to own a one off, masterbuilt Gretsch that will no doubt appreciate in value, ten fold, as time passes. We are lucky enough to have TWO stern masterbuilt's in stock, each one as incredible as the other.
Factory Spec & information below:
This classic, ’59-style beauty is highlighted by a sultry, vintage-correct two-tone Smoke Green lacquer finish and a pair of TV Jones® TV Classic™ pickups that deliver the classic Filter’Tron™ sound. It also features trestle bracing, a Space Control™ bridge, Bigsby® B6C vibrato tailpiece and commemorative headstock plate. The back of the headstock is signed by Gretsch Senior Master Builder Stephen Stern and features our Gretsch Custom Shop Logo. Here’s the icing on the Anniversary cake: Each of the 75 G6118T-R-CST guitars has been lightly “Relic-ed” with some slight cosmetic aging—”A few bumps and bruises” as Stern puts it—and a carefully checked finish, as if someone bought the guitar new in the late ’50s, played it a few times and kept it in its case under the bed or in the closet all these years. It’s a real beaut, believe us, so join us in celebrating this Anniversary!
