Gretsch honors the late Malcolm Young, whose rock-solid rhythm guitar swagger and songwriting provided the unshakable foundation for monumental rock titans AC/DC. The G6131-MY pays homage to Young’s famously battle-hardened Gretsch Jet. Nicknamed “The Beast,” Malcolm certainly made the instrument his own, not least by removing two of the three pickups, stripping away the finish, and pounding out some of the hardest and most memorable rhythms the world has heard.
This models features the essential hallmarks of one of rock’s most iconic instruments including “DIY” pickup routes with simulated screw holes, chrome switch plugs, Space-Control™ bridge and ‘60s-style tailpiece. Open-cavity thunder roars from the thin-skin satin finished chambered mahogany body and is magnified by a high-output TV Jones® Power’Tron™ pickup.
Malcolm Young’s fiery rock ‘n’ roll spirit lives on through AC/DC’s enduringly timeless music, and it is Gretsch’s great privilege to pay fitting tribute to him with a finely crafted instrument bearing his name.
Gretsch Guitars out of their Japanese Factory have offered incredible performance for years now but they have simply never been better. One the last few years we have seen Gretsch quality under Fender's guidance, just go through the roof. Even their Korean, Indonesian, and Chinese imports are so impressive, we have dedicated a nice chunk of the store to them! Stop by today to play selections from the entire Gretsch Product Line and if we don't have what you are looking for, we can special order it! From a Masterbuilt Stephen Stern Gretsch Custom Shop to an Electro or Synchromatic, gotta try em all!
