Vintage Guitar Reviews the Gretsch G5191BK Tim Armstrong Electromatic

Be sure to pick up the August 2010 issue of Vintage Guitar for a review of the Gretsch G5191BK Tim Armstrong Electromatic, modeled after the preferred hollowbody guitar that the renowned Rancid frontman has torn up stages with for more than a decade.

“Plugged in, the G5191BK does not disappoint,” writes Vintage Guitar reviewer Sean O’Bryan Smith. “Its tone bars and soundposts give an acoustic projection and help it really drive the Filter’Tron pickups. It has the classic jangle and resonance one would expect from a Gretsch, while all that projection is a godsend for styles not necessarily associated with the brand.”
