Loud and ferocious, the Gretsch® G5191BK Tim Armstrong Electromatic® Hollow Body bears the personal stamp of Rancid founder and punk godfather Armstrong.

The one-piece maple neck has a white graphite nut and bound rosewood fingerboard with acrylic block inlays. Other features include dual Black TopFilter’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.
