Player’s Edition feature sets are geared toward building 100% confidence in the instrument. Ultimate tuning stability and maximum comfort from tailpiece to tuning keys, Player’s Edition guitars can be trusted every song, every night. Powerful sound and complete total flexibility including new caps, pots and bracing provide full control of that classic Gretsch power.
• Thinner 2.25" Bodies: Thinner bodies provide greater comfort during long sets, and allow the player to freely "dig in"
• "ML" Bracing Pattern: Reducing body size can also reduce big body fullness. ML bracing promotes greater air movement and restores the big body sound within a thinner body.
• Pinned Rocking Bar Bridge: Maximum string glide over the bridge allows greater tuning stability while using the Bigsby.
• Locking Tuning Keys & TUSQ XL Nut: Locking tuning keys provide easy string changes and excellent tuning stability. TUSQ XL minimizes friction between string and nut.
• String-Thru Body: Quick and painless string changes
• Strap Locks: Your guitar will remain secure onstage, regardless of movement or activity.
• Squeezebox Caps & Treble Bleed Circuit: PIO Squeezebox Caps give that silky vintage sound and taper. Treble Bleed Circuit allows the player to back off the volume for greater tonal control without losing that high end sparkle.
• No-Load Tone Pot: When the tone switch is maxed, the Filter'Tron pickups are "wide open." Rolling back the tone knob engages a smooth rolloff and great tonal flexibility.
