Gretsch 130th Anniversary Junior – G6118T LTV JR




Comments Here is the very, very cool Gretsch 130th Anniversary Junior – G6118T LTV JR. Gretsch has from time to time made smaller-bodied versions of their guitars, perhaps to balance out the giant Falcon and Country Club models.

But this isn’t a ‘Mini’ guitar – the body is smaller, close to the size of a George Benson model, but it’s full scale so the tension and tone are all there.

This is based on the 130th Anniversary model, with pretty much all the options you could ask for. TV Jones Power ‘Tron pickups, ML bracing, Gotoh locking tuners – this is ready to go, and the two-tone lacquer is very attractive.

Serial Number Varies as new, shown is JT13010155, built 2013 in the Terada plant in Japan. The two we’ve just received are 2014 production. There is a hardware difference – the new models feature locking Gotoh tuners rather than Sperzels.
Pricing $4129.99 CAD including Gretsch arcthop hardshell case.
Neck 3-piece maple neck with unbound ebony fingerboard, mother of pearl neo-classic position markers. Headplate has Anniversary plate and Gretsch logo. 24.6 inch scale length and 1.68 inch nut width.
Frets Medium Jumbo frets.
Body 14 inch wide, 2.25 inch deep 3-ply arched maple Anniversary shape body with ML bracing. Maple sides.
Finish Two tone gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish – black top, metallic gold back, sides, and neck.
Hardware/electronics Ok, so this has pretty much everything. Bigsby B3CB vibrato, Adjusto-matic bridge on pinned ebony base, TV Jones Power ‘Tron pickups, pickup selector, tone switch, master volume, individual tones. Gotoh locking tuners are now fitted, and a bone nut. Gretsch logo pickguard.
Playability/Action Plays like a Gretsch – the factory setup is really good – and the small body size is very comfortable.
Case Original Gretsch hardshell case included.
