Gretsch G6134T-LTD16 Limited Edition Cadillac Green Penguin

When everybody in the store stops and looks, we know we’ve got something special. This stunning Cadillac Green Limited Edition Penguin is one of only a few made this year for North American release.

Cadillac Green is one of our favorite Gretsch colors—essentially a dark undercoat with a shimmering green metal flake added. We’ve tried to do it justice in the photos, but it’s really striking in person. And the color is set off by the gold hardware and gold sparkle trim popping out against the green (it even has the traditional Gretsch Penguin gold banjo-style arm rest).

The Penguin features a chambered mahogany body with an arched maple top that combines presence and open resonance without feedback (it’s also lighter than similar solid-bodies).

The TV Jones High-Sensitive Filter’Tron pickups are humbuckers at heart, with a warm, clean “chimey” presence—plenty of power but more articulate than traditional double-coils. The tone circuit is pure Gretsch, with a master volume, individual volumes for each pickup, a master tone control (no “mud switch” on this one) and a 3-position pickup selector.

The trim is Gretsch’s top-of-the-line from end to end, with Gold Grover Imperial tuners, jeweled gold knobs, gold plexi pickguard and a gleaming gold Bigsby B3G vibrato. There’s gold sparkle binding (in addition to multi-ply white/black/white trim) on the body, fretboard and V-style Falcon headstock. The ebony fretboard features Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays. The Gretsch logo—also in gold sparkle—is the ‘winged’ Falcon style.  

For what this guitar lacks in subtlety, it more than makes up in presence and presentation. This rare bird features great sound, an amazing finish and all the focus-grabbing features you could ask for. It’s one of the most unique and collectable new instruments we’ve had this year.
