Gretsch 130th Anniversary Junior – G6118T LTV JR

Gretsch 130th Anniversary Junior - G6118T LTV JR

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.

Gretsch Roots Collection Soprano and Concert Ukuleles

Gretsch Roots Collection Soprano and Concert Ukuleles

The Ukulele has been making a strong comeback in popularity. Their portability, musical versatility and relatively low cost are big factors in this.

We carry a wide range of brands and models of Ukuleles, from inexpensive wooden soprano ukes to expensive metal-body resonator concert models.

Gretsch has released as part of their ‘Roots Collection’ a number of ukuleles, and here are two of them – the G9100 soprano and the G9110 Concert.

These are built of solid mahogany for the body, with mahogany necks and rosewood fingerboard and bridge.

The one shortcoming with these instruments is the stock friction tuners, so we’ve upgraded the tuners on these instruments to Grover Sta-Tites.

Gretsch Electromatic G5422TDC: The Cherry Blossom

We are lucky enough to have received one of these very special limited edition guitars from Gretsch – the Gretsch Electromatic G5422TDC “Cherry Blossom”. This double-cutaway hollow body has all the chime, twang, and crunch that a Gretsch-lover could want, thanks in no small part to the Black Top FilterTron pickups: a new addition to the Electromatic line.
