Great news - you can own punk godfather Tim Armstrong's signature axe! Loud and obstreperous, the Gretsch G5191 Tim Armstrong Electromatic hollowbody guitar bears the personal stamp of Rancid's iconic founder. Ginormous tone resonates from deep within the G5191's bound, single-cutaway hollowbody. Parallel tone bar bracing and a sound post ensure this guitar will survive the wildest of stage antics. Bound f holes and gold-plated hardware lend an elegant - if incongruous - touch to this purveyor of sonic frenzy.
Gretsch has detailed this guitar according to Mr. Armstrong's personal guitar preferences. You get a one-piece fast-action maple neck, fitted with a white graphite nut and a bound rosewood fingerboard with acrylic block inlays. Belligerent tone belches from twin "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups bedecked with gold-plated bezels. A three-position pickup switch, bound headstock with pearloid Gretsch inlay and Armstrong's signature on the truss rod cover, Grover tuners, Adjusto-Matic bridge, harp tailpiece, and ominous flat black finish complete this menacing package.
