The rarest of the rare, the G6134TDC-LTD15 Broadway Jade Penguin Limited Edition is an astonishing take on one of the most collectible Gretsch® guitars ever produced. Framed with chrome appointments, the classy Broadway Jade metallic finish presents a royal touch for this one-of-a-kind instrument packed with inspiring tones that range from soft, dulcet whispers to pure, raw rock ‘n’ roll power.
The Penguin’s highly-resonant double cutaway chambered mahogany body is capped by an arched maple top for a playing surface that’s as comfortable as it is gorgeous. Dual High Sensitive Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups generate pure harmonically and volume balanced tone that’s as raucous or refined as you need. This flexible tone is channeled by the standard Gretsch control layout—volume controls for each pickup, a master volume control, three-position pickup selector switch and the famous Gretsch three-position tone switch on the upper bout for instant access to eminently useful voicings. Enjoy a comfortably familiar playing feel from the standard “U”-shaped neck profile—comfortable for chord and melodic playing alike—while the 12”-radius bound ebony fingerboard with pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays is designed for fleet playing across the 22 medium jumbo frets. A touch-sensitive Bigsby® B3C vibrato tailpiece is near to hand to embellish your playing with style and grace while the pinned “rocking” bar bridge and chrome Grover® Imperial™ tuners work in concert to ensure your instrument stays in tune all night long.
Gleaming under the spotlights, this instrument is a true performer, designed to take center-stage and shine. There’s no mistaking the bold style as anything less than Gretsch—chrome hardware, white sparkle neck and body binding, jeweled chrome “Arrow” control knobs and white plexi pickguard with silver Penguin logo combine for a look that’s as rich as the sound. Destined to astonish the audience’s eyes and ears, the G6134TDC-LTD15 Broadway Jade Penguin Limited Edition is a guitar for those who demand the ultimate in playability and style melded with That Great Gretsch Sound!™
