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.
