Product Description

Check Out This Thunderous Beast!

AC/DC's Malcolm Young has been described as "driving, deafening, and totally unstoppable" — his muscular riffs have cemented his place in the pantheon of esteemed rock 'n' roll rhythm guitarists for all time. The Professional G6131-MY Malcolm Young Signature Jet re-creates Mal's gutted ’63 Gretsch Jet Firebird, right down to the aged finish, tour-worn feel, and "DIY" pickup routes. Pick it up, and thunderous riffs will abound, thanks to a TV Jones Power'Tron bridge humbucker. And enjoy effortless playability, by way of a Standard U-shaped neck with a bound 12"-radius ebony fingerboard. The Malcolm Young Signature Jet includes a Space-Control bridge, a bone nut, and Schaller die-cast tuners.

Chambered mahogany body for harmonically rich tone

For the Professional G6131-MY Malcolm Young Signature Jet, Gretsch starts with a select 2"-thick mahogany body that delivers tremendous warmth and resonance. Strategic body chambering provides smooth attack and extended, harmonically lush bandwidth while reducing weight — which you'll definitely appreciate during marathon gigs! This chambered design, key to the Malcolm Young Signature Jet's thunderous sound, serves as a tonal foundation that's then given a high-dose amphetamine injection by the guitar's lone humbucking pickup. Here at Guitar World, we've been playing this guitar through a cranked amp stack almost non-stop — it's that addictive! So many killer riffs, so little time...

 

Beefy TV Jones Power'Tron pickup

The Professional G6131-MY Malcolm Young Signature Jet is powered by a TV Jones Power'Tron pickup. TV Jones Power'Trons meld the smooth, silken voice of a golden-age PAF with the rockabilly twang of the late-'50s/early-'60s Filter'Tron. This humbucker boasts a full body and clear top end that dynamic players are sure to enjoy. Digging in reveals a chunky low-end breakup that sounds great through a tube amp. The secret is a narrow bobbin aperture that keeps bass notes tight and punchy, along with specially spaced pole screws for clean note separation from string to string. Compared to a TV Classic, the Power'Tron is darker and somewhat gnarlier, with more windings — as much as a PAF humbucker — for hotter output.

"The Beast" is unleashed

The Professional G6131-MY Malcolm Young Signature Jet is a meticulous re-creation of Malcolm's ’63 Gretsch Jet Firebird, a.k.a. "The Beast." It not only employs a thin-skin semi-gloss finish for a tour-worn feel, but it also comes fully loaded with Gretsch's patented Space-Control bridge on an ebony base, along with eye-popping "G" arrow knobs and a '60s Jet Vibrato tailpiece. You also get "DIY" pickup routes with simulated screw holes, just like Malcolm's original. Add to that eye-catching Neo-Classic thumbnail fingerboard inlays and aged-white binding, and you've got yourself one killer instrument. So strap the Malcolm Young Signature Jet on your shoulder — you'll not only be making music, but you'll also be making a fashion statement.
