Gretsch hit the summer season with three tasty releases! Thanks to the unmistakable vintage styling, the trio represent the best in what Gretsch has to offer, and will be suitable for a range of players and styles. We take a look at the highlights of each!
Malcolm Young is the famed founding member and former rhythm guitarist of AC/DC, now honoured with the Gretsch G6131-MY. Saluting his battered and scarred Gretsch Jet nicknamed “The Beast”, this guitar replicates some of its defining features. This includes the removal of two of the three pickups and stripping back the finish to bare all. An authentic and heartfelt tribute to one of rock’s irreplaceable heroes!
One for the rock ‘n’ rollers, Gretsch aim to shake their rockabilly reputation with this versatile guitar. Not only does this guitar look fantastic with its classic Gretsch 50’s Hot Rod feel, but the tone and playability take it above the range of most of the brand’s offering. This Players Edition has improved neck access, high output Full’Tron pickups and a modern Bigsby vibrato. These great features combine to make an instrument that is suitable for more or less any genre! And what better way to grab a slice of Gretsch’s beautiful style and flavour?
Timeless designs have made Gretsch one of the most revered makers of hollow body guitars. The G5420T Electromatic is no exception, and brings the hollow body dream into an affordable price range! That is to say that quality hollow guitars often cost well over triple the price of this brand new offering. The build quality is immaculate, and the perfectly formed maple body resonates beautifully to replicate the fabled “Gretsch sound”. A great introduction for anyone wanting to become acquainted with hollow body guitars from one of the best names in the business!
