Today Gretsch launched their G6229TG Limited Edition Players Edition Sparkle Jet BT with Bigsby® and Gold Hardware, delivered in two new head-turning finishes —Champagne Sparkle and Ocean Turquoise Sparkle with black pickguards. Each model is a perfect mixture of wall-shaking power and full-spectrum fidelity that delivers unparalleled overdrive and shimmering cleans — all at the stomp of a switch.
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 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.
Each Jet BT begins with a select mahogany body with maple top that produces a strong, balanced mid-range, while the chambered body delivers a smooth attack and extended bandwidth that is remarkably wide and harmonically rich. This powerful platform is fueled by Gretsch Broad'Tron™ BT65 pickups. Designed by the famed Tim Shaw, the BT65 meticulously captures the guitar's sonic palette and reproduces powerful mids, extended lows and an exceptionally clear, yet smooth high end. 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.
