This Gretsch G6228 is our floor demo model. Included with the guitar is the manufacturers warranty.
From Gretsch comes a cutting-edge update of the company's vintage classic electric guitar to fuel a new generation of guitarists.
The Gretsch G6228 Player's Edition Duo Jet combines a chambered mahogany body and maple top with Gretsch's full-spectrum Broad’Tron BT65 humbuckers and the stability of their V Stoptail to deliver a staggering range of tone. From shimmery cleans to gnarly overdrive, your wish is this guitar's command.
Start with a select 1.85”-thick mahogany body and maple top combo that delivers strong, balanced midrange. Body chambering provides a smooth attack a while reducing weight — which you'll definitely appreciate during hours of stage time!
Powered by Gretsch's outstanding Broad’Tron BT65 pickups which were designed by renowned pickup guru Tim Shaw. The broad sonic range delivers extended lows, powerful mids, and smooth, clear high end. You'll find it has you covered for any genre-hopping live gig or recording session. From sparkling cleans to brutal overdrive everything's on the menu.
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!
