The control complement - separate bridge and neck volume controls, three way pickup switching, no load master tone and master volume - allows for near infinite tonal variations.

Highly expressive, the Bigsby B6GP vibrato tailpiece and pinned "rocking" bar bridge combine with the GraphTech TUSQ XL nut for stable tuning. In a uniquely Gretsch touch, 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.
