One of the most recognisable features on this guitar is the Bigsby tremolo, which has featured on Gretsch guitars since the 1950s. With the Bigsby tremolo players can add tremolo and pitch-bending effects to single notes or full chords, while remaining in-tune. There is also an Anchored Adjusto-Matic Bridge that is common on Gretsch Guitars due to its reliable tuning. Introduced in the early 1970s, this innovative bridge offers superb, individual intonation for each string, with its six adjustable saddles. A secured rosewood base is also included in this design, and offers better resonance and stability.
