AC/DC’s Malcolm Young Honoured With Signature Gretsch Guitar

Gretsch Guitars have honoured late AC/DC co-founder and guitarist Malcolm Young with a new model, the G6131-MY Malcolm Young Signature Jet.

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.
