According to Gretsch, the G6131-MY pays homage to Young’s iconic guitar, the Gretsch Jet. This model aims to replicate the spirit of Young’s instrument, which he really put through the ringer – he removed two of the three pickups and stripped away the finish.
This new model includes such hallmark features like ‘DIY’ pickup routes with simulated screw holes, chrome switch plugs, Space-Control bridge with ebony base and a ‘60s-style tailpiece.
Malcolm Young sadly passed away late last year after a long battle with dementia. He was 64.
The G6131-MY Malcolm Young Signature Jet will be available this November. For more info, head to Gretsch’s website.
