Gretsch G6229TG Limited Edition Players Edition Sparkle Jet BT with Bigsby and Gold Hardware Ebony Fingerboard Ocean Turquoise Sparkle
Weight: 9 LBS 1 OZ

This limited-edition Gretsch Players Edition G6229TG Sparkle Jet BT is the culmination of over half a century of tone and performance innovation. Each Jet BT begins with a select mahogany body with maple top that produces a strong, balanced mid-range, while the chambered body delivers a smooth attack and extended bandwidth that is remarkably wide and harmonically rich. This powerful platform is fueled by Gretsch Broad'Tron BT65 pickups designed by the famed Tim Shaw. The BT65s meticulously capture the guitar's sonic palette and reproduces powerful mids, extended lows and an exceptionally clear high end. The result is the perfect mixture of wall-shaking power and full-spectrum fidelity that delivers unparalleled overdrive and shimmering cleans—all at the stomp of a switch. 

Responding to players' need for increased comfort, this limited-edition Gretsch Players Edition G6229TG Sparkle Jet BT features a lowered neck set that greatly improves fret-hand mobility while also giving the picking hand a closer approach, increasing comfort and accuracy. A rolled cutaway and tapered heel allows for 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 limited-edition G6229TG Sparkle Jet BT 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.
