    Eye catching Cadillac Smoke Green Gretsch 6118T 100th Anniversary hollow body archtop guitar from the Pre-Fender era built by the excellent craftsman of the Terrada factory in Japan.

    The Gretsch 6118T 100th Anniversary is a damn good rock and roll machine in a two-tone green colour scheme, the top is a lovely mint green color and the back is a Cadillac Green which has a smoky ‘grayness’ to it. It is a super looking guitar. The Ebony fingerboard without the white ABS binding seems to suit the color scheme. The guitar is fitted with chrome hardware from the ’58 onwards era and has the ’59 style V Bigsby B6C, with the flat swing out handle. The machine heads are the closed back Gotoh quality with Gretsch G logo. The guitar has a ‘space control’ bridge fitted which is a bridge I particularly like.

    Pickups are High Sensitive Filtertrons which are standard output and give a great sound, the tone is derived from a tone switch circuitry set up as found on the ’58 onwards guitars. Build quality and finish are superb, faultless in fact. The Japanese makers at Terada are all top line guitar builders, and it shows. Flawless craftsmanship!
    From a tonal point of view the guitar is alive and gives a broad spectrum of tones  from jazz and country through to rocking style. Give her some overdrive and she really screams. The guitar comes with a nice quality TKL case with the Gretsch logo. Near mint condition.
