Gretsch Release Nigel Hendroff Signature Penguin

Gretsch Release Nigel Hendroff Signature Penguin

Gretsch guitars and guitarist, songwriter, and producer Nigel Hendroff have released the G6134TFM-NH Nigel Hendroff Signature Penguin. Hendroff is known for playing flashy Gretsch Penguins throughout his career and for this signature guitar, the brand leveraged the same vibrant aesthetic while building a foundation tailored for the traveling musician. It’s a guitar with understated elegance that players won’t be afraid to take on the road.

Hendroff was extremely involved in the design, opting for a model that felt old, comfortable and easy, like a worn glove. The result was simplified controls, a semi-gloss neck, and Broad’Tron pickups that produce a larger sound with more punch and power.

The Penguin’s single-cutaway chambered mahogany body with flame maple top captures the harmonic richness and resonance of the top and body for a livelier, more articulate tone. Designed by the famed Tim Shaw, the highly versatile BT65 Broad’Tron pickups meticulously capture the guitar’s sonic palette and reproduce the perfect mixture of wall-shaking power and full-spectrum fidelity.
