SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Sept. 2, 2020) – Gretsch® today announces the all-new G6128T Players Edition Jet™ DS with Bigsby® and all-new G2215-P90 Streamliner™ Junior Jet™ Club.
For over 65 years the Gretsch Jet™ has fueled stages and studios producing some of the greatest sounds in rock 'n' roll history. The all-new G6128T Players Edition Jet™ DS with Bigsby® is the culmination of over half a century of tonal and performance magic.
The G6128T Jet DS begins with a select mahogany body with maple top that produces the signature strong, punchy response that has made the Jet famous. For this model, Gretsch chose a 1.85" depth along with vintage chambering to deliver a tighter, more controlled attack that still retains incredible articulation.
DynaSonic™ bridge and neck pickups complement the chambered body to produce amplified bright, shimmering highs and a defined, rich bass for distinct tone that cuts through the mix.
Responding to player needs for increased comfort, the G6128T 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 new full-access rolled cutaway and tapered heel allows the 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 G6128T also comes equipped with additional Players Edition features that give total control of 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.
Designed for the working professional, the G6128T Players Edition Jet DS with Bigsby® is available in Black, Dark Cherry Metallic, Lotus Ivory and Sahara Metallic with nickel hardware. The Black and Dark Cherry Metallic finishes sport a silver pickguard, the Lotus Ivory comes with a charcoal grey pickguard and the Sahara Metallic features a tortoise pickguard.
An exciting new addition to the Streamliner™ Collection, the G2215-P90 Streamliner Junior Jet™ Club is a stylish workhouse that’s ready to brawl.
Powered by Broad’Tron™ BT-2S bridge and P90 Soap Bar neck pickups, this Streamliner delivers tight lows with a throaty midrange that is harnessed and shaped by a master tone control, master volume control and three-way pickup switching.
Bound nato bodies with stunning Mint Metallic, Sahara Metallic and Single Barrel Stain finishes are complemented by effortless mahogany-stained necks that feature 12”-radius laurel fingerboards, elegant pearloid Neo-Classic™ inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets.
The G2215-P90 also features an anchored compensated wrap-around bridge, gold Electro-style control knobs, cream pickguard and nickel hardware.
