WATCH: Patrick Stump Talks About His Gretsch Signature Guitar

For any guitarist, one of the major signs of “making it” is when a renown guitar manufacturer honors you with your own signature model guitar.

Fall Out Boy frontman/rhythm guitarist Patrick Stump, who happens to celebrate a birthday today (April 27), was honored by Gretsch in 2013 with the “G5135CVT-PS Stump-O-Matic Patrick Vaughn Stump Signature Electromatic® CVT.”

…And the guitar is as cool as its official name is long!

Check out the video below of Stump walking through the specs of the guitar!

Fall Out Boy is back and better than ever in 2013, and so is singer/guitarist Patrick Stump's signature Gretsch guitar model, the G5135CVT-PS Stump-O-Matic Patrick Vaughn Stump Signature Electromatic® CVT, as seen (and heard) here. Stump himself gives you a guided tour of the guitar, which now features a white finish with gray "competition" stripes for a cleanly elegant look with a dash of attitude.
