New Gretsch G6134T-58 Vintage Select ’58 Penguin is a return to production of a very rare bird – only 50 Penguins were made between 1958 to 1962. The 2017 Penguin has been added to the Vintage Select range of modern classic Gretsch guitars with TV Jones pickups modelled on the original Filter’Tron’s for that classic Gretsch sound and period-correct Bigsby and Space-Control bridge to capture the original vibe…

Inspired by the pivotal and prolific years of Gretsch’s 1950s and early ’60s golden age, Vintage Select Edition guitars are designed for the player who appreciates the finest in musical instrument heritage. The G6134T-58 Vintage Select ’58 Penguin™ with Bigsby® rocks that legacy with a finely crafted new take on that rarest of Gretsch birds.

1958 saw Gretsch’s venerable Penguin guitar decked out with a pair of Filter’Tron™ pickups, complementing the signature sound of its chambered Mahogany body, which magnifies harmonic richness by letting air resonate between the top and body for livelier and more articulate tone. The dual TV Jones® Classic™ pickups replicate that unmistakable vintage Filter’Tron™ sound to fabulous sonic effect.
