For over 65 years the Gretsch Jet has fueled stages and studios producing some of the greatest sounds in rock 'n' roll history. The all-new G6128T Players Edition Jet DS with Bigsby is the culmination of over half a century of tonal and performance magic.
The Jet DS 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 DS, we chose a 1.85" depth along with vintage chambering to deliver a tighter, more controlled attack that still retains incredible articulation. DynaSonic bridge and neck pickups complement the Jet DS's chambered body to produce amplified bright, shimmering highs and a defined, rich bass for distinct tone that cuts through the mix.
Responding to player needs for increased comfort, the Jet DS 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 DS comes equipped with additional Players Edition features that give you total control of your tone and performance, including no-load master tone pot with Squeezebox™ paper-in-oil capacitor, master volume with treble bleed circuit and individual pickup volume controls. The select mahogany body with maple top has vintage chambering for a thick sonic profile that is astoundingly rich and acoustically resonant

Why We Love Gretsch
Gretsch has been handcrafting guitars for over 135 years. The unique sound of the Gretsch semi-hollow body guitar has become synonymous with rockabilly music, one of the first styles of rock ‘n roll. Gretsch guitars are a favorite among musicians like Chet Atkins, Brian Setzer and George Harrison. At Cream City Music, we love Gretsch too, which is why we always have a huge selection of new, used and vintage Gretsch guitars in stock.
