The Gretsch Tennessee Rose was first introduced in the late 1950s. The classic single cut model was one of Gretsch's more basic models along with the Country Gentleman and Nashville, but soon skyrocketed in popularity thanks to one George Harrison. The Tennessee Rose would play a significant role in creating The Beatles' iconic sound and subsequently, the sound of popular music. The Gretsch G6119T-ET Players Edition Tennessee Rose pays tribute to its legendary roots and takes a classic Gretsch model and updates it with modern player-oriented features that provide maximum performance while retaining the authentic sound and style that made it famous. Powerful and versatile sound, superbly comfortable feel and gorgeous tried-and-true aesthetics combine for a state-of-the-art instrument that’s a wonderful addition to any guitar collection.
The all-new FT-67 Filter’Tron humbucking pickups were designed to capture authentic vintage Gretsch voicing but with a more well-rounded tone for modern playing styles. This powerful pair of pickups provide open and pristine top-end chime, glassy midrange, robust low end and balanced harmonics for tone that blends seamlessly with other instruments. Parallel bracing delivers resonant hollow body sound from the comfortable 2”-deep maple body. The Electrotone-body style revisits a vintage design from the 1960s, and its shallow depth, simulated f-holes and sealed top provide additional feedback control and low-end thump.
The control complement — separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup toggle switching, no-load master tone and master volume — allows for infinite tonal variations. Our “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil capacitor adds smooth vintage tone while the all-new treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down.
A 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges and 22 medium jumbo frets top a 24.6”-scale maple neck with a comfortably familiar standard “U”-shaped profile for fluidly easy playing, while Luminlay® side dots offer precision fretting in low-light settings. The Bigsby B6CP vibrato tailpiece and Adjusto-Matic™ bridge combine with the Graph Tech® 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.
