Gretsch 2019 G6229 Player edition Jet BT , Silver Sparkle , OHSC & Paperwork, Great condition

$ 1765.00

I have a 2019 Gretsch G6229 Players edition Jet here in Silver Sparkle. With all it’s case candy. I will post the factory specs at the bottom of the listing. This one has some interesting figuration in the mahogany, note that that is not a three piece body. It is natural mahogany streaking you see on the body back. This one weighs  7lbs 9 ounces.

This Gretsch is in great condition. Upon scrutiny of it i can find a minimal amount of superficial surface swirling. But no accumulation or all over sheen or any patterns of that. Just faint traces of superficial swirling.

I found one minute surface level indentation in the body edge and one on the body back. Both small about a couple millimeters in size that does not break the finish. Just a faint little barely noticeably impression.

I can not find any noteworthy marks, there is no buckle rash or worming. The original film protector sleeves are still on the backplates.

The neck looks excellent as well with no marks that i can discern. And a nice playing setup that plays just as it should. Same with the electronics. They Stock and working as they should.

So this one i will rate a 9.5/10 and grade as excellent. This is a nice well kept instrument that appears to have been cased when not in use as it has a very crisp glossy appearance still. It is structurally and sonically sound.

As for the guitar it is an exceptional Gretsch even within their diverse lineup. It has a medium weight and singlecut shape. Which is the very ergonomic and comfortable to play. Many Gretsch’s especially the Chet Atkins line, are Huge in terms of their size and mass. So this one definitely has a player friendly feel and size to it.

Tonally it sounds a little more dense and solid then the semi hollow Gretsch models. To my ears it sounds a bit like a more refined and open Les Paul. The pickups allow for really good articulation of gain. You can actually crank the overdrive and still get a nice hard rock sound out of this guitar if desired.

The cleans have a nice dramatic and dynamic character that Gretsch’s are known for. Where this guitar differs from most singlecuts is it in no way has a boomy or muddy sound. Heavy singlecuts have a fat bass sound but this can smother the upper mids and highs. the engineered chambered body here is going to give you more bloom and full extension and expression of the upper mids and treble frequencies while at the same time giving you smoothed over sweet sounding treble frequencies that are not harsh or edgy.

The guitar has a nice touch sensitive attack and has what i call a “woody” tone. It has a lot of detail and layers or tiers of tonal frequencies.

So overall it’s a great guitar from a great brand. You can really do no wrong with the core made in Japan Gretsch line. It really comes down to finding the model that appeals to you personally at the right price and condition point. This model to me has a little more rock character then country in my opinion. It really loves power chords with overdrive.

This guitar will be carefully packed, with sufficient filler and bracing in
the shipping box and if needed a little in the case. I will detune the
strings about one half a step prior to shipment. Another step i take is i
will denote for it to be shipped “standing” with arrows drawn on the outer
box and it will be marked fragile as well. It will be meticulously packed.

Thank you for reading and considering!
