Gretsch Guitars

Description

Since the early 1950s, the Gretsch Jet has been producing some of the most iconic sounds in rock 'n' roll. The all-new G6128T Players Edition Jet DS with Bigsby carries on that tradition as a culmination of over half a century of tonal and performance wizardry.

The Jet DS starts with a chambered, select mahogany body and maple top to produces the signature strong, punchy tonality that made the Jet's reputation. For the Players Edition Jet DS, Gretsch chose a 1.85" depth along with vintage chambering to deliver a tighter, more controlled attack that still retains precise articulation.

DynaSonic bridge and neck single-coil pickups complement the Jet DS's chambered body to produce bright, shimmering highs and a tight, well-defined, rich bass for a distinct tone that cuts through.

Responding to player needs for increased comfort, the Jet DS features a lowered neck set that greatly improves fret-hand mobility while also giving the picking hand a closer approach, increasing comfort and accuracy.

The full-access rolled cutaway and tapered heel allow free access to upper frets without awkward pivoting or palm obstruction. This sleek design remains hidden, preserving a vintage aesthetic – a critical feature that is meant to be felt, not seen.

The Jet DS comes equipped with additional Players Edition features for total control of your tone and performance, including no-load master tone pot with Squeezebox paper-in-oil capacitor, master volume with treble bleed circuit and individual pickup volume controls. Includes deluxe hardshell case.
