With this G6131 Jet, Gretsch appropriately honors the legendary Malcolm Young, whose rock-solid rhythm playing and songwriting formed the foundation of the iconic songs of the rock titans of AC/DC. This G6131-MY-RB Jet is a recreation of Malcolm Young’s famous Gretsch Jet, nicknamed ‘The Beast’. This red version was used on AC/DC’s early work, even before Malcolm Young stripped and modified the guitar.
To recreate Young’s earliest days with the instrument, the G6131G-MY-RB is equipped with TV Jones Ray Butts Ful-Fidelity Filter’Tron bridge and neck pickups that deliver the unmistakable vintage Gretsch tone, along with an added TV Jones Starwood humbucker in the middle for a clear and powerful sound.
The G6131G-MY-RB Limited Malcolm Young Signature Jet is built with a slightly aged finish, 12″ radius bound ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets, aged pearloid Neo-Classic miniature inlays, Adjusto-Matic bridge with ebony base, 60s Jet vibrato tailpiece, Schaller die-cast tuners, black pickguard, G-arrow control knobs and aged gold hardware.
