What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gretsch G5191BK Left-Handed Tim Armstrong Electromatic Hollowbody Guitar is a fantastic Signature Electromatic Hollowbody model by Gretsch.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Gretsch G5191BK Left-Hand Tim Armstrong Guitar's smooth matte black finish, bound F-holes, comfortable one-piece maple neck, Grover machine heads, Adjusto-Magic bridge, gold hardware and stunning Harp tailpiece as well as the powerful Black Top Filtertron humbucker pickups.
What Gretsch has to say:
Loud and ferocious, the Gretsch® G5191BK Tim Armstrong Electromatic® Hollow Body bears the personal stamp of Rancid founder and punk godfather Armstrong.
Huge tone resonates from deep within its bound single-cutaway hollow body, which features parallel tone bar bracing with sound post and bound F Holes.
The one-piece maple neck has a white graphite nut and bound rosewood fingerboard with acrylic block inlays.
Other features include dual “Black Top” Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups with gold-plated bezels, three-position pickup switch, gold-plated hardware, bound headstock with pearloid Gretsch inlay and Armstrong’s signature on the truss rod cover, Grover® tuners, Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and harp tailpiece.
