A recreation of Malcolm Young's original Jet electric.

Malcolm Young’s fiery rock ‘n’ roll spirit lives on through AC/DC’s enduringly timeless music, and it is Gretsch’s great privilege to pay tribute to the groundbreaking rhythm guitarist with the G6131G-MY-RB Limited Malcolm Young Signature Jet. Nicknamed “The Beast,” Young used this guitar in early AC/DC performances and music videos including “It’s a Long Way to The Top,” before eventually making his own mods and stripping the paint job. To recreate Young’s earliest days with the instrument and deliver his signature distinctive crunch, the G6131G-MY-RB signature model comes equipped with TV Jones Ray Butts Ful-Fidelity Filter’Tron bridge and neck pickups that replicate the unmistakable vintage Gretsch voicing, along with an added TV Jones Starwood humbucker in the middle for clear and punchy tone. The instrument’s period-correct chambered mahogany body also magnifies harmonic richness by letting air resonate between the top and body for livelier and more articulate tone. Explore its endless tonal versatility with a flexible control layout that includes master volume, individual volume knobs for each pickup, three-position pickup toggle switch, three-position tone switch and three-position standby switch. Built to rattle foundations in true Malcolm fashion, the G6131G-MY-RB Limited Malcolm Young Signature Jet also features a lightly aged finish, 12”-radius bound ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets (plus zero fret), aged pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays, a bone nut, harmonica-style Adjusto-Matic bridge with pinned ebony base, ‘60s Jet vibrato tailpiece, Schaller die-cast tuners, a black pickguard, G-arrow control knobs and aged gold hardware.
