About This Listing

The handmade Gretsch G6156 Playboy is the little brother of the Executive - boasting 15-watts instead of 20, and 5 tubes as opposed to the Executive's 8. Just the same, it was designed from the ground up to be a perfect match for Gretsch guitars. And, while you can expect excellent tone, the G6156 Playboy also looks just as cool - it's covered in a two-tone Space Age Vinyl creating a unique cutout shape that's sure sure to turn heads. Complete with a one-button footswitch to control tremolo, you'll have all the tone you need - and then some - with the classy Gretsch G6156 Playboy.

Gretsch G6156 Playboy at a Glance:
Handwired and All Tube
Stylish Down to the Details
Handwired and All Tube
The Gretsch G6156 Playboy was made in the United States by Victoria Amp Company, and features an all-handwired chassis, ensuring that each amp received the necessary personal attention to deliver the best sound possible. This 15-watt beauty is also all tube, sporting one 12" Eminence Legend speaker, and five tubes for that true-tube tone. It has controls for volume, treble, middle, bass, as well as tremolo intensity and speed with an included one-button footswitch for tremolo on/off.

Stylish Down to the Details
Gretsch spared no detail with the G6156 Playboy, giving it a finger-jointed pine cabinet, a classy chrome control panel, and its distinctive two-tone Spage Age Vinyl covering.

Made by Victoria for Gretsch in November of 2005.
I’m not sure please correct me if mistaken but to my knowledge this model was only made for 2-3 years.

This amp has fresh matched set of tubes.
3 Genalex ECC83 Gold Lion with balanced and matched triodes
2 vintage EL84/7189 NOS lp Soviet military era tubes made in the Reflektor plant. closely matched & balanced within 5 mA.
I will send the factory GT tubes upon request as well.

Low output single coils sound beautiful with very little breakup while an Esquire rocks and a 335 will bloom for days. This one will be missed as I’ve cherished it the short time I’ve spent with it. Im sure it will bring joy to the next owner. The sweet tones fall somewhere between a Princeton and a tweed twin. This is one incredible hand wired beast for small gigs or the home studio. I will pack safe and ship to continental states only. Message me for local pickup if desired. Any questions I’d be happy to help. There are a few indents in the vinyl but they are visible in photos and minor. Factory speaker is amazing! Foot switch and cover included. The tremolo is definitely one in its own! Very unique !
