19 Apr Grunge Gretsch
It’s 30 years since Grunge took over the world and to celebrate Gretsch have released the all-new G6129T-89VS Vintage Select ’89 Sparkle Jet with Bigsby.
This pays homage to a classic late-’80s design that rocked the forefront of the Pacific Northwest grunge movement that overtook the music world in the early 1990s.
Delivering signature solid-body power and punch, the G6129T-89VS features period-correct chambered mahogany construction, which magnifies harmonic richness by letting air resonate between the top and body for livelier and more articulate tone.
TV Jones TV Classic Plus bridge and TV Jones TV Classic neck pickups replicate that unmistakable vintage Filter’Tron sound to fabulous sonic effect, and can be intuitively commanded using a versatile control layout featuring master volume with treble bleed circuit, master tone, individual pickup volume controls and three-way pickup toggle switch.
Other features include a maple set neck, 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with pearloid Hump Block inlays, bone nut, G-arrow knobs, Bigsby vibrato tailpiece, Adjusto-Matic bridge with pinned rosewood base and Gotoh tuners.
This grunge-era beauty comes in Gold Sparkle or Silver Sparkle finishes with silver pickguard, nickel hardware and late-’80s black headstock with Gretsch logo and horseshoe inlay.
