Watch Joe Carducci Demo the New G6228FM Players Edition Jet BT and Show Off the 135th Anniversary Models for ‘Premier Guitar’

February 7, 2018


During the NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif., in late January, Gretsch’s very own Joe Carducci sat down with Premier Guitar’s Jason Shadrick for a quick rundown of the powerful all-new G6228FM Players Edition Jet™ BT, as well as a quick preview of our gorgeous 135th Anniversary Models.

In the PG video, Carducci gives a bit of the history of the Jet model before diving headfirst into the details of the G6228FM, including how the unique body chambering gives the guitar a wider and more vibrant sound, especially when combined with the new Tim Shaw designed BT65 pickups. Clean or dirty, this new model really delivers full-spectrum fidelity at the stomp of a switch.

Continuing with his history lesson, Carducci introduces our two new limited edition 135th Anniversary models – the Opulent 2-Tone Casino Gold on Dark Cherry Metallic G6118T-135 135th Anniversary™ with Bigsby® and the G5420TG Electromatic® 135th Anniversary with Bigsby® in 2-Tone Dark Cherry Metallic over Casino Gold. Both guitars are filled with rich, historical Gretsch details and capture the true essence of That Great Gretsch Sound™.
