The Penguin’s chambered mahogany body with arched maple top captures harmonic richness by letting air resonate between the top and body for livelier and more articulate tone, while a pair of TV Jones® TV Classic pickups beautifully project bright, twangy notes with a hint of growl similar to late-1950s Filter’Trons. The result is an extraordinary voice ideal for distinctive rock ‘n’ roll licks, chiming country rhythms or articulate rockabilly riffs. A three-position toggle switch, two volume pickup controls, master volume and master tone open up endless tonal possibilities.
Its premium features also include a set maple neck, 12” radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, Bigsby B3C tailpiece, arched rocking bar bridge with pinned ebony base, Grover® Imperial™ tuning machines and bone nut.
Richly appointed, this limited edition beauty is decked out with silver sparkle body and neck binding, mother of pearl Neo-Classic™ inlays, jeweled arrow control knobs, nickel hardware, Violet Metallic pickguard with ghosted Gretsch and Penguin logos and Violet metallic headcap.
