Two High Sensitive FilterTron 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 delivers huge hollow body sound from the comfortable 2.25 body. The control complementseparate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup switching, no-load master tone and master volumeallows for infinite tonal variations. Our new 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. The Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece and pinned rocking bar bridge combine with the GraphTech® TUSQ XL nut for maximum tuning stability. 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.
