Punk rock warlord Tim Armstrong makes no apologies that the music radiating from his soul is oftentimes loud and ferocious. His guitar tone alone has become as infamous as his world-renowned persona that resulted from playing guitar and singing vocals in revolutionary punk bands from Operation Ivy to Rancid. Armstrong has been asked to contribute his guitar talents in songs from a wide genre of bands, from punk bands like AFI and Bad Religion to hip hop and reggae acts like Cypress Hill and Buju Banton.

In honor of Tim Armstrong, Gretsch is proud to introduce the G5191 Tim Armstrong Signature Electromatic Hollow Body guitar. A big sound resonates from the parallel tone bars and sound post that is mounted under the top of the 17" wide body, which has a harp tailpiece and a pair of "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups for maximum sustain and tuning stability.
