Gretsch® and Bono join forces once again for a new signature guitar model bearing the special (RED) logo adorning the pickguard and truss rod cover to bring awareness of Bono's support of Product Red and their humanitarian efforts in the battle against HIV/AIDS.
The double-cutaway G5623 Electromatic® Center-Block (RED) Bono "Signature" Model puts Bono's personalized stamp on Gretsch's new thinline spruce Center-Block design, which delivers "high gain-friendly" tone and greater control over the kind of feedback players want.
