The Gretsch G3161 is a rare guitar I thought would be nice to put up on the blog. This guitar features 2 Gretsch Bucker humbucker type pickups, a G cutout tail piece, and nice cats eye shaped cut outs. The Cats Eye shape instead of traditional F holes really sets this model apart. These was produced from 2000-2006 by Gretsch.

This guitar here is still bone stock exactly how it came from the factory 20 years ago. The tone is very Gibson like with these pickups. The feels and sounds of this guitar is reminiscent of a Gibson 335.
