Gretsch / GT-LTV Anniversary / / Two-tone Smoke Green / Guitar

The first Anniversary models were created in to celebrate Gretsch’s 75th anniversary. The color was a Cadillac-like two-tone smoke green, and it looks really nice. 



This version from is quite special, featuring a series of specs not found in current-day models. That year was the actual th anniversary of Gretsch, so a small emblem was included in the back of the headstock on all Anniversaries. It also features nitrocellulose lacquered body in the two-tone green and TV Jones pickups. However, it is not the actual th Anniversary model (only availiable in Jaguar Tan and with ML bracing instead of Trestle Bracing), so this is quite a nice find.

 

TV Jones Powertrons are very warm, with rich mid-tones that kind of remind us of the PAF’s, but maintaining that Gretsch tone. The body is slightly narrower than the ’s, and the unbound fretboard is a pretty unusual feature for a Gretsch.

 

The guitar is in exceptional condition, almost like-new. It may have some sign of playwear, but we basically say this to cover our backs, since we’ve looked closely at it and it looks superb (many “new ones” are hanging from store hangers in far worse condition than this). It includes OHSC (like new) and COA, as well as all the rest of the case candy. One-year warranty included.

For fans of semi-hollow and hollowbody guitars, this is an absolute stunner! This Gretsch GT Anniversary plays like a dream, has a massive hollowbody sound despite the smaller body construction and oozes that gritty retro vibe reminiscent of that iconic Chet Atkins sound. In very good condition with playwear and marks throughout, a slightly more prominent scratch on the back, small dings on the neck and a separation in the binding and body by the neck heel. Comes as pictured with Gretsch original hardshell case.

"In celebration of the th anniversary of Gretsch and a legacy that has lasted five decades, the tradition of the anniversary model continues. To commemorate this historic event, a very special electric guitar was created that is sure to be an instant classic. The body is made of three-ply laminated maple for the utmost resonance and tone.

Two key individuals in the Gretsch story recently designed a unique scalloped bracing specifically voiced for Gretsch guitars. The ML bracing, which stands for Gretsch guitar designers Masao Terada and Mike Lewis, makes its debut on the th "Annie." This construction synchronizes the vibration of the top and back, with increased acoustical openness in tone. Accentuating the tone of the ML bracing are a pair of TV Jones Power'Tron pickups, pinned rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic bridge and a Bigsby B6C vibrato tailpiece"

At the intersection of innovation and tribute you’ll find the GT Players Edition Anniversary with String-Thru Bigsby—a guitar that honors its inspirational past while remaining firmly rooted in the future of music. Engineered for optimum performance and responsiveness it reacts instantly to your every musical move, not just earning, but demanding a place in your sonic arsenal.

A pair of High Sensitive Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups responds to every note dynamically—snarling or purring according to how hard you strike the strings. The control complement—separate bridge and neck volume controls, three-way pickup switching, No-Load master tone and also a master volume—allows for near-infinite tonal variations. The all-new Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil caps add smooth vintage tone while the treble bleed circuit lets your guitar retain all of its tasty clarity when rolling the volume control down. The standard “U”-shaped maple neck bears a 12”-radius fingerboard with 21 durable medium jumbo frets for a memorable playing experience that works with any fret-hand style. A pinned “rocking” bar bridge reacts in concert with the Bigsby B6CP vibrato tailpiece for stable tuning while the teflon-impregnated GraphTech® Tusq XL nut lets the strings slide freely, without binding in the slots. A thinner, ” body provides maximum comfort during long sets while the innovative Gretsch “ML” bracing allows the guitar to retain that rich, full hollow body sound. 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.

A finely tuned modern music machine, this guitar features the appointments Gretsch fans desire—nickel “G Arrow” control knobs, white binding with black purfling, gloss urethane finish, pearloid thumbnail inlays, Smoke Green vintage thick plexi pickguard with Gretsch logo and Schaller locking tuning machines. Let loose the fury and power of rock with the GT Players Edition Anniversary with String-Thru Bigsby—big sound meets bold, brash style.

That Pedal Show – Our Guitars \u0026 Gear: Dan's Gretsch G6118T Anniversary

The history of Gretsch Anniversary models

Many guitar companies now make anniversary models to celebrate milestones and special occasions, but most of these ‘celebration guitars’ are limited-run designs. The Gretsch Anniversary, however, quickly became a mainstay of the company’s line-up when it debuted in the late 50s.

Yet arguably more significant than its popularity at the time of issue is the way the Anniversary has held on as an enduring route to vintage Gretsch goodness, providing a relatively easy means for enthusiasts of the 21st century to lay their hands on the ‘real thing’ without digging too deeply into their pockets.

Unlike your typical limited edition or special release, the Anniversary models – introduced in to celebrate Gretsch’s 75th anniversary – were priced at a level intended to bring as many customers as possible in on the celebration. Clearly, the effort worked. Gretsch saw no reason to delete the model from the catalogue, and it evolved right alongside its siblings as this rather quirky company changed specs and components over the years, even as the brand’s th anniversary eventually faded in the rear-view mirror.

Upon their arrival in ’58, the Anniversary models were constructed the same as the cornerstone hollowbody models such as the Chet Atkins. Both had hollow bodies that were 16 inches wide and inches deep, made from braced laminated maple, with dual f-holes and rounded cutaways. Likewise, their necks had ebony fingerboards, and they were made to the shorter traditional inch Gretsch scale length. The Single Anniversary had one Filter’Tron humbucking pickup in the neck position, a tone switch, and a single volume control on the rounded body ‘horn’.

gretsch advertisement vintage

Double fun

The Double Anniversary got its name from its two Filter’Tron pickups, and also added a three-way selector switch beside the tone switch on the upper bout, plus an individual volume control for each pickup in addition to the final master volume on the horn. Each was available in a sort of vintage sunburst finish that Gretsch called ‘Shade’, or a stylish ‘Two-Tone’, which had a light ‘Smoke Green’ on the top and contrasting darker green on the back and neck.

Although the model numbers were generally less referred to than that of the eponymous , the Anniversaries had theirs, too: for the Single in sunburst and in Two-Tone, for the Double in sunburst and in Two-Tone.

Otherwise, what did the Chet Atkins Hollowbody of ’58 and ’58 have that the Double Anniversary lacked? A bound neck and headstock, bound f-holes, and a Bigsby – and that was about it. Oh, and Chet Atkins’s name on the pickguard. Those were clearly a draw for plenty of players, but at $ for the compared to $ for the Double Anniversary, well, you can see why so many players snatched up the latter.

The Double Anniversary’s bargain status circa to ’59 translates to more affordable prices on today’s vintage market when compared to a of the same period, and in similar condition. A quick survey of a few dealers – not the least bit scientific, mind you – confirms that a good from that time will easily fetch £7, or more, while a Double Anniversary can be had for half that, or even significantly less.

The Single Anniversary’s specifications have made that model, however, far less appealing. Arguably the largest component of &#;That Great Gretsch Sound&#; comes from the meaty twang of that Filter’Tron in the bridge position, and the Single Annie simply ain’t got one. There are plenty of them out there, so clearly there was no shortage of players eager to take advantage of the bargain $ price back in the day. Carry that forward to , and it’s not hard to find a vintage Single for somewhere in the region of half the price of the Double.

Of course, the keen-eyed and player-minded among us immediately see another form of bargain in that: grab an affordable Single Anniversary, add a Filter’Tron in the bridge position and a couple more knobs, and you’ve got a pretty reasonably priced alike, if it’s a player’s guitar you’re after in the first place.

Not that we whole-heartedly recommend this route: such modification requires careful consideration of the potential devaluation of an original vintage guitar, weighed alongside the expense of having such work done professionally.


Brilliant highs

In , Gretsch introduced its own in-house single-coil pickup, the Hilo’Tron, to replace the Model (aka Dynasonic) they had previously been buying in from DeArmond. The new pickup looked something like a Filter’Tron with only one row of six adjustable pole pieces showing, protected by what was essentially a Filter’Tron cover with its centre band chopped down. But beneath the top plate lurked just one lightly wound coil, positioned off to one side of the structure, with a magnet attached to it side-on.

The company was obviously quite pleased with the new units, and presented dealers and customers with a brochure entirely dedicated to these components. Referred to as “electronic guitar heads” in Gretsch parlance, the Hilo’Trons were touted as being &#;Full Hi-Fidelity&#;, with &#;Brilliant Highs&#;, &#;Mellow Lows&#;, and an &#;Extra Lively Response&#;. What more could you want from a guitar pickup?

That same year, both Anniversary models lost their Filter’Tron humbuckers and trestle bracing, and gained these new Gretsch-made single coil units instead.

In hindsight, it’s hard to see the move as anything other than a downgrading of the model. Filter’Trons are the king of all Gretsch pickups, and players who prefer single-coils generally rave about the DeArmonds of the 50s.

For all that, though, an original Hilo’Tron in good condition, on a guitar that’s set up right and playing well, can still sound extremely good through a quality amplifier. They are bright pickups, though, with a little girth and bite in their original form, sure, but not much punching power.

These were pretty lightly wound pickups, with resistance readings in the upper 2K ohms to lower or mid-3K ohms range, so they don’t have the ability to push a tube amp very hard on their own, but they do retain the clarity and sparkle that were major sonic objectives for Gretsch at the time

.

Down market

The change to Hilo’Trons demarcates the start of a far less-desirable era of Anniversary production in the eyes of players and collectors today, although the model remained quite popular throughout the early 60s. Likely it was still seen as a great bargain in a genuine Gretsch electric guitar – and a good looking one at that – in an age when most players likely weren’t as spec-conscious as we are today.

As a result, a ’60 Double Anniversary with Hilo’Trons is almost always significantly cheaper on the vintage market than a ’59 with Filter’Trons (all else being equal), and the discounting might extend to as much as half the value of the latter. Once again, this makes these potentially good value for the vintage Gretsch fan who digs the Hilo’Tron sound, or for someone with the stomach for modding one to ’58/’59 specs.

Later in , Gretsch further confirmed the Anniversary’s second-class status by using rosewood fingerboards rather than ebony. Hilo’Trons and rosewood ’boards don’t appear to have arrived simultaneously, and you will find some crossover in these changes, but by part way into ’61 the new specs seem to have solidified.

One new development the Anniversary didn’t get that the had received the year before was the ‘zero fret’, the fret added adjacent the nut in the so-called ‘zero’ position to enable a low action determined by overall fret height.

Lauded as an ‘advancement’ in some guitar circles at the time, and still a hotly debated specification, the zero fret was seen as a bonus for Gretsch’s upmarket models – even though, again, many players and collectors today demarcate the ‘pre-zero fret’ years of the 50s as the golden age at Gretsch – and apparently the lower-priced Anniversary models weren’t deemed worthy of the addition. For those who never got on with a zero-fret, this fact can make the ’60 and early ’61 Double Anniversary a desirable acquisition, especially if you can find a transitional example that retains the ebony fingerboard.


Living stereo

In , Gretsch inducted the Anniversary model into another ill-conceived club, which already had several other more high-end models as members. &#;Stereo&#; was the watchword in just about any realm of consumer electronics in the late 50s, and if hi-fi systems were all at it, well, many guitar makers also figured stereo must be the way forward for them, too.

Gretsch’s exalted White Falcon and Country Club models had offered a stereo option since ’58, using two more closely-spaced Filter’Tron pickups that had only two rows of three pole pieces under the bass strings in the neck position, and two rows of three under the treble strings in the second pickup nearer the middle position. The output routed one pickup to one amp and the other to a second, and voila, stereo!

It seems, however, that just about the time Gretsch was trying the same trick in ’61 with two three-pole Hilo’Trons on the Sunburst model and Two-Tone , the guitar world et al was catching on to the reality that you didn’t necessarily get a better sound with bass and treble strings routed independently. That, and the two amps needed to fully achieve the sound (or single, more complex, more expensive ‘stereo amp’) were a further pain in the backside besides. After ’62, the Stereo Anniversary disappeared from the catalogue.

One thing the Anniversary didn’t get in ’61, however, was the double-cutaway body shape given the and other key models. Again, the Anniversary’s bargain-rate status probably saved it from that ‘advancement’ in guitar design. But what might have been seen in the day as lagging behind the trends helped it remain a more 50s-styled model that continues to this day to please fans of the seminal single-cutaway format that graced guitars in the hands of Eddie Cochran, Duane Eddy, and others.

And yet another thing the Anniversary never got: the clunky mute device that high-end models received in ’61, along with the arguably rather ugly snap-on pad covering the access hole in the back of the guitar’s body. More players removed the pointless, rattling, weight-increasing mute mechanisms from their s, Country Gentlemen, Country Clubs and others than we can begin to count, so it’s another plus that the Anniversary never suffered one.

In ’63 the Double Anniversary was given a bound fingerboard, an upgrade that made it an even better budget route to full-bore Gretschitude… other than the fact that the bindings on Gretsches this age of any status have likely crumbled by now. Still, it was a sign of respect. Also that year, Gretsch introduced the hip new alternative finish Two-Tone Tan was introduced, with Bamboo Ivory on the top and Jaguar Tan on the back, sides and neck – all of which sound a lot more appealing than if they’d called it &#;beige-and-brown&#;.

Baldwin beckons

Not much befell the Anniversary models through the mids – until Baldwin bought out Gretsch in Shortly thereafter the Two-Tone (aka Smoke Green) finish option was dropped. The rather pointless Single Anniversary was also unceremoniously deleted during the Baldwin years. The Double Anniversary received the zero fret in ’

Gretsch itself underwent several upheavals under Baldwin’s rein, as the big piano company sought to consolidate production and sales operations during what was becoming a downturn for the guitar market in general.

In , Baldwin moved guitar-making operations from the Brooklyn plant where Gretsch guitars had been manufactured for 54 years to an existing Baldwin facility in Booneville, Arkansas. The sales team lingered on in Brooklyn for a couple of years, then shifted briefly to Chicago before settling in with Baldwin’s corporate headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, in Throughout all of this – widely recognized as a dark period in Gretsch history – the Double Anniversary soldiered on, until its retirement in

Gretsch languished through the late 70s and early 80s, occasionally producing some ill-conceived new models, and occasionally manufacturing no new guitars at all. As Baldwin began liquidating other assets in the early- to mids, Fred Gretsch III saw an opportunity to bring the brand back into the family, and purchased his namesake instrument manufacturer in Gradually, through careful oversight and a thoughtful roll-out of several classic models and a few reconfigured designs, Gretsch regained its status in the market.

Gretsch GT Players Edition Anniversary

Joining the Fender family

After shifting production locations and line-ups through much of the 80s and 90s, Gretsch penned an agreement in with the Fender Musical Instrument Corporation that boosted the brand with the strength of FMIC’s manufacturing and marketing facilities while allowing the Gretsch family to retain ownership.

In the estimation of many players, this marks a watershed in the history of modern Gretsch guitars. It led to the steady availability of classic-styled models built – whether in Japan’s Terada factory, or in limited run in Fender’s USA Custom Shop, or as the budget-friendly Electromatic line made in Korea and China – to a quality that is often judged to be ‘better than vintage’.

A fairly standard Double Anniversary occasionally figured in the early reissue line-up, but during the FMIC-manufactured years, we have more often seen Gretsch use the model for an upgraded, player-friendly release that includes desirable features that were never loaded onto originals.

In , Gretsch offered the th Anniversary GT in a two-tone featuring a Bamboo Yellow top and Metallic Bronze back and sides, with Filter’Tron-style pickups made by TV Jones (aka TV Jones Classics) and a Bigsby vibrato.

In , the th Anniversary rendition took on a Jaguar Tan finish (Bamboo Ivory top and Metallic Gold back) with TV Jones’s hotter Power’Tron pickups. Today’s Player’s Edition Gretsch LTD th Anniversary features a two-tone Casino Gold top over Dark Cherry Metallic back and sides, with reissue Filter’Tron pickups. All of these versions also carry the ebony fingerboard that the Anniversary lost circa ’

Whether it’s a vaunted ’58 to ’59 original, a sensitively modified 60s rendition, or a thoughtfully reconfigured reissue, there’s a lot of mileage to be had out of just about any version of the Anniversary, and for many players these still offer a means of achieving classic Gretsch styling and tone for significantly less outlay than the high-end models.
