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 G6128TLH Players Edition Jet™ FT with Bigsby® is the culmination of over half a century of tonal and performance magic. 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.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. 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.
