Vintage Guitar Test-Drives Tim Armstrong’s Signature Gretsch
February 2, 2012
Vintage Guitar recently checked out Tim Armstrong’s distinguishable signature Gretsch G5191BK, dubbing it “exceptional,” and “plain cool.”
Take it from the magazine itself.
“The G5191BK has classic Gretsch styling with some of Armstrong’s particular requests well-represented,” says Vintage Guitar. “Aesthetically, it’s just plain cool – oozing a rock vibe reminiscent of a hip old hot rod, it looks retro in its flat-/matte-black finish and gold hardware.”
But according to Vintage Guitar, the cool factor doesn’t stop there. Armstrong’s signature model sounds as great as it looks.
“Plugged in, the G5191BK does not disappoint,” says the magazine. “It has the classic jangle and resonance one would expect from a Gretsch, while all that projection is a godsend for styles not necessarily associated with the brand.”
