Both of these Jets come with a Bigsby and gold hardware to adorn the already mesmerising finishes.
Each Jet boasts a chambered mahogany body with a maple top, while being powered by Tim Shaw-designed Gretsch Broad’Tron BT65 pickups.
The BT65 “meticulously captures the guitar’s sonic palette and reproduces powerful mids, extended lows and an exceptionally clear, yet smooth high end,” Gretsch said.
“The result is the perfect mixture of wall-shaking power and full-spectrum fidelity that delivers unparalleled overdrive and shimmering cleans – all at the stomp of a switch.”
Gotoh locking tuners set paired with an anchored Tune-o-Matic bridge should keep the guitars nicely tuned, while a lowered neck set greatly improves fret-hand mobility and gives the picking hand a closer approach, increasing comfort and accuracy.
“Our new full-access rolled cutaway and tapered heel allows the free access to upper frets without awkward pivoting or palm obstruction,” Gretsch said.
“This sleek design remains hidden, preserving a vintage aesthetic – a critical feature that is meant to be felt, not seen.
The Jet BT comes equipped with additional Players Edition features that give you total control of your tone and performance, including no-load master tone pot with Squeezebox capacitor, master volume with treble bleed circuit, and individual pickup volume controls.
“For over 65 years the Gretsch Jet has fueled stages and studios, producing some of the greatest sounds in rock ‘n’ roll history,” Gretsch said.
“The all-new G6229TG Limited Edition Players Edition Sparkle Jet BT with bigsby and gold hardware is the culmination of over half a century of tonal and performance magic, delivered in two new head-turning finishes.”
