Gretsch Stumps Up Signature Fall Out Boy Axe

Gretsch has created a signature Electromatic Corvette axe for Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Vaughn Stump called the 'Stump-O-Matic'...


The G5135PS Patrick Vaughn Stump Signature Series features a solid mahogany body, a set-in mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard and 21 frets.

It also boasts three Mega’Tron® pickups and TV Jones®-designed circuitry with a Stump-O-Matic kill switch, string-through-body design for maximum sustain, chrome hardware, and Pewter finish with custom black stripes.


“I told them I wanted something that sounds really good through a high-gain British amp and a clean Fender amp," Stump said of his meeting with Gretsch.


"When I’m playing live, I want to get as many tones as I can out of one instrument. I need all the clarity that single-coil pickups provide, and the overdrive tones that only come from humbucking pickups. It’s the guitar I use and I’m very, very proud of it.”


The Stump-O-Matic goes on sale on 1 February at participating Gretsch dealers worldwide with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of £759.99.
