G6137TCB Panther Center-Block

Model: 2400600
Collection: Professional Collection (View Collection)

In celebration of its 130th anniversary, Gretsch introduces a brand-new Professional Collection model—the G6137TCB Panther. It features a beautiful 1 ¾"-deep double-cutaway three-ply maple body with a 16" lower bout, arched top and back and elegant f holes. The centerpiece of the model is a long spruce center block.

The center block runs the entire length of the body and imparts several sonic advantages. First, it minimizes body-resonant feedback and creates a more "high gain-friendly" performance. Second, it's made of spruce, which produces a spirited, lively tone. Third, the center block itself is chambered at the lower bout to minimize weight. Fourth, the pinned wood bridge base extends over the sides of the center block about 5/8” on either side, transferring string-vibration energy to the two f-hole-vented body chambers to produce a full-bodied tone.

Other premium features include a three-piece maple neck, 12"-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and pearloid Neo-Classic™ "thumbnail" inlays, single-ply bound headstock with pearloid Gretsch logo, and dual High Sensitive Filter’Tron™ pickups. The guitar also has a top-mounted output jack, "G" arrow control knobs and chrome hardware, an Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with pinned rosewood base and Bigsby® B6C tailpiece, Grover® Sta-Tite™ tuners and Schaller® strap locks. Available in Black and White. Deluxe hard-shell case included.
