Gretsch G6131T Players Edition Jet FT Firebird Red with Bigsby

Combining over five decades of tonal magic with unquestionable Gretsch know-how, the G6131T Players Edition Jet will take you way back to Gretsch's golden age.

Two High Sensitive Filter'Tron™ pickups provide the classic power and tone associated with the Jet, and the timeless Gretsch excellence is continued with a laminated Maple top over a select Mahogany body, which due to its generous resonance chambers, is both light and lively sounding. Players Edition control and performance is ensured by a Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard, which has been set lower for greater comfort; a full-access rolled cutaway, and tapered heel further enhance this guitar's incredible playability.

A pinned Rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic™ bridge, with a Bigsby® B7CP String-Thru Vibrato Tailpiece provide the classic Gretsch juice, while Gotoh® Locking Tuners and a Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut provide excellent tuning stability which, when wrapped up with its exceptional Firebird Red gloss finish, make this Gretsch a truly memorable guitar.

What Gretsch say:

For 65 years the Gretsch Jet has fueled stages and studios, producing some of the greatest sounds in rock 'n' roll history. The all-new G6129T Players Edition Jet™ FT with Bigsby® is the culmination of over half a century of tonal and performance magic.

Chambered Mahogany Bodies — Fat, Full and Acoustically Rich: Like its forebears, the Jet FT begins with a select mahogany body with maple top that produces the signature strong, punchy response that has made the Jet famous. For the Players Edition Jet FT, we chose a 1.85" depth along with modern chambering to deliver a tighter, more controlled attack that still retains incredible articulation.

High Sensitive Filter'Tron™ Pickups – Classic Power and Clarity: A pair of High Sensitive Filter'Tron pickups complements the Jet FT's chambered body to produce a wide, balanced and transparent tone that is equally adept at cutting through the mix or laying solid sonic foundation.

Players Edition Comfort, Control & Performance: Responding to players' need for increased comfort, the Jet FT features a lowered neck set that greatly improves fret-hand mobility while also giving the picking hand a closer approach, increasing comfort and accuracy. Our new full-access rolled cutaway and tapered heel allows the free access to upper frets without awkward pivoting or palm obstruction. This sleek design remains hidden, preserving a vintage aesthetic – a critical feature that is meant to be felt, not seen.

The Jet FT comes equipped with additional Players Edition features that give you total control of your tone and performance.
