Gretsch Penguin

penguin

This is a white Penguin, one of Gretsch's elite members. Ha, it is really fancy like the white falcons except a bit smaller and as heavy as a Les Paul, at least. The body has a solid block down the middle rather than the usual semi which adds considerable weight. It also has the brass arm rest which adds to it. However I love it with it's inlays and gold embellishments.This is a reissue of a mid fifties Penguin I think although it has dynasonic pickups but I don't know which pickups they had in the fifties nor if it would have been semi hollow or not. This model is listed as a g6134ds made in japan in 2006.
