The Gretsch G6128T PRO Players Edition Jet FT Bigsby Electric Guitar in Black benefits from over 65 years of experience gained from being put through its paces by many legendary guitarists, including George Harrison and David Gilmour. The feel, fit, and finish of the G6128T adheres closely to the classic design we've come to expect. However, with Gretsch applying modern appointments for improved playability and versatility, you can rest assured that the G6128T PRO Player's Edition is something very special indeed.
The Gretsch G6128T-PE is built to the classic chambered design that encourages a stirring character. The back and sides are built using mahogany, which establishes a solid mid-range tonal foundation. The top is built using laminated maple, which offers a crisp high-end energy that rounds out the output beautifully. The G6128T is built using a 1.85-inch depth that is combined with modern chambering, which encourages a tighter low-end with a controlled attack for sublime articulation.
The body has been finished in no nonsense black, which is complemented by the three-ply binding (white-black-white). The upper bout is protected by a silver plexi pickguard to prevent unwanted nicks and scrapes from affecting the finish, which is completed by a black Gretsch logo.
Fast playing neck
Joined to the body is a single-piece mahogany neck, which is shaped to the standard "U" neck shape that offers a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. The neck plays smoothly in the hand thanks to the resilient gloss finish. Single-ply white binding extends along the neck and around the headstock.
Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail position inlays. The flatter 12-inch radius makes it a breeze to fret chords and perform lightning fast licks. The unique full-access rolled cutaway and tapered heel allow the upper frets to be accessed with ease, pairing a vintage aesthetic with a modern feel.
The Gretsch G6128T PRO Player's Edition is home to a pair of High Sensitive Filter'Tron pickups, which makes the most of the chambered body to produce a wide range of tones. From classic rock 'n' roll to modern day high gain rock tones, from blues to country to prog, the Filter’Tron do a stellar job of delivering an awesome output. Control over the pickups comes in the form of independent volume controls for each pickup, as well as a master tone knob.
Whether you're an amateur or a professional, the G6128T-PE PRO Players Edition Jet FT Electric Guitar boasts a hardware setup any guitarist will fall in love with. The body is home to an anchored adjusto-matic bridge that is paired with a Bigsby tailpiece, affording smooth and seamless vibrato control. The headstock is home to Gotoh locking tuning machines, which uphold string tuning with precision.
