This extremely limited and unique Gretsch Custom Shop guitar is only one of 25 made! The Custom Shop Rich Robinson "Magpie" pays tribute to the former Black Crowes guitarist's modern rock style, with Falcon-style appointments, Raven’s Breast Blue finish, a "Feather and Circle" symbol that is carved into the top, and Magpie Graphic pickguard. The "Magpie" motif is taken from Robinson's new band, Magpie Salute, whose 2018 studio album debut High Water I earned instant critical acclaim.
This Gretsch, a G6136T-CSTRR is a Custom Shop piece that will turn heads not only with its aforementioned unique style, but also its exceptional sound. A TV Jones Classic Plus humbucker in the bridge delivers a balanced rock sound with an emphasis on treble frequencies, while the Broad’Tron BT65 neck pickup brings a punchy midrange tone to the forefront of its sound.
Other premium features include Grover Imperial tuning machines, amber jeweled G-arrow control knobs, bone nut, Adjusto-Matic bridge with pinned ebony base and Bigsby B6 tailpiece with string-thru shaft. A Gray Speckle premium hardshell case is also included.
Don’t miss your opportunity to take home one of the most unique, feature-rich Gretsch guitars ever made!

Why We Love Gretsch
Gretsch has been handcrafting guitars for over 135 years. The unique sound of the Gretsch semi-hollow body guitar has become synonymous with rockabilly music, one of the first styles of rock ‘n roll. Gretsch guitars are a favorite among musicians like Chet Atkins, Brian Setzer and George Harrison. At Cream City Music, we love Gretsch too, which is why we always have a huge selection of new, used and vintage Gretsch guitars in stock.
