    I really didn't need a new guitar, and definitely not another Gretsch (I admit I'm a Gretschaholic) as I have like 12 Prolines by now and I swore to my wife this will be my last one (for awhile!) but I couldn't say no this fabulous guitar on EBay!It's a custom shop G6118 130th Anniversary in Gold/Black Nitro finish with a pair of great TVJones Pus, a wonderful (and for a Gretsch unusually thick) neck (at least not like any other of the Gretschs I have),15 1/2 ' Body and so on in perfect new condition, case and case candy included ..all of that under 3K euro!I had to pull the trigger!!!
    So here are some pics!Does anyone know what strings those are?Looks like D Addario to me,but the colours are a bit unusual? 20190319_232409.jpg 20190319_232420.jpg 20190319_232438.jpg 20190319_232455.jpg

    Well we see a lot of Gretsch on this site (funny that :)) but this really is one of the best I've ever seen.
    Enjoy :)

    Congratulations Filterronico, that is a beautiful Annie!

    There are a few other companies that color code the barrels, besides D'Addario, but I couldn't tell the difference, so I can't really help here.

    Very nice. Fender used to make strings with colored ball ends where the colors weren’t quite the same as D’Addario, could be those. In fact, I read somewhere that they were actually rebranded D’Addario’s with a little difference in colors.

    An absolute stunner! This has been my favorite color combo’s of the anniversary 6118’s. But has always been a bit out of reach for me price wise. I thought they came with TV Filter’Tron classics, not the Classic Plus? Your pictures don’t capture the silver sparkly binding very well. I don’t believe they made these in high numbers as I really haven’t seen them up for sale often. Anyway, enjoy!

    How about a family shot of the 12 together?

    Interestingly, I have the Junior version of this guitar (6118T-LTV-JR-130th Anniversary JR). On the Junior version the colors are reversed: black top/gold back and sides.

    You are right, the silver sparkle binding around the body doesn't show right in the pictures...I will try to post a better pic later.They only made a few of these (30?) and I read that only 3 were available in Europe...One is still for sale at a german music store for the double of the price...And yes, one day I'll post a Gretsch family reunion picture !

    Oh. My.

    I love an Annie and that one is utterly beautiful. Congrats.

    I second that ‘family reunion’ shot request!
