A fast-playing Gretsch?
If the Gretsch name doesn't make you think of fast, intricate fretwork, you may have never heard Chet Atkins play. You'll think twice once you get your hands on the CVT III, though. The thin-profile body is amazingly comfortable to play, never getting in the way of your performance. And the rosewood fretboard boasts a 12" radius fretboard, the perfect shape for fast fingerwork.
Wide tonal range from a trio of humbuckers
Mini-humbuckers, to be precise. The CVT III boasts three, giving you a whole world of tones to explore. The neck pickup is positioned where the 24th fret would be, a harmonically-rich position that gives you bold, piano-like clean tones with the distinctive Gretsch glow. Whether you play rhythm or lead, you'll find a lot of sounds you'll love to work with inside the CVT III.
Big sound with excellent sustain
Don't shy away from the ultra-thin 1.5" body of the CVT III. It's solid mahogany, giving you amazing sustain and rich, wide-ranging tone without being bulky. The CVT III is comfortable to wear and play, and looks pretty sweet too.
