Gretsch has announced a new model, the Steve Wariner Signature Nashville Gentleman with Bigsby. The revered country musician’s new guitar looks luxurious and has some great features.
Steve Wariner Signature Nashville Gentleman
Officially called the Gretsch G6120T-SW Steve Wariner Signature Nashville Gentleman with Bigsby, this new signature model guitar looks sumptuous and classic, yet has a few modern touches to it as well.
“I have wonderful memories of standing, drooling over the row of beautiful Gretsch guitars at Vic Zinn music store as a kid … Owning one was a huge dream — having your very own signature model, the Nashville Gentleman, is that very dream coming true and more. Believe me, I understand the rich history of this guitar company. I’m humbled and proud to be alongside the likes of Duane Eddy, Malcolm Young, Brian Setzer and of course my mentor, Chet Atkins, to mention a few.” – Steve Wariner
Finger Pickin’ Good
This model has a single-cutaway hollow body with a TV Jones TV Classic Plus neck pickup and a TV Jones Paul Yandell Duo-Tron bridge pickup. Gretsch says this particular pickup configuration was chosen to complement Steve Wariner’s finger picking style; apparently it’s unique to this model. The guitar has a master volume and master tone control with a push-pull pot for coil splitting and a three-way toggle switch. The scale length is 25.5”.
The ebony fingerboard has a 12”-radius with aged mother of pearl Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets. The neck is a standard “U”-shaped profile.
A Bigsby B6GP String-Thru tailpiece is paired with a pinned vintage-style Tru-Arc brass rocking bar bridge and a brass nut.
Magic Black & Gold
The guitar is finished in a luxurious Magic Black finish and has gold G-arrow control knobs and matching hardware, aged white binding with black and white purfling, and a gold plexi pickguard.
