Gretsch® honors the late Malcolm Young, whose
rock-solid rhythm guitar swagger and songwriting
provided the unshakeable foundation for
monumental rock titans AC/DC.
The G6131-MY pays homage to Young’s famously
battle-hardened Gretsch Jet™. Nicknamed “The
Beast,” Malcolm certainly made the instrument
his own, not least by removing two of the three
pickups, stripping away the finish, and pounding
out some of the hardest and most memorable
rhythms the world has heard.
This model features the essential hallmarks of one
of rock’s most iconic instruments including “DIY”
pickup routes with simulated screw holes, chrome
switch plugs, Space-Control™ bridge with ebony
base and ‘60s-style tailpiece. Open-cavity thunder
roars from the thin-skin satin finished chambered
mahogany body and is magnified by a high-output
TV Jones® Power’Tron™ pickup.
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 fitting tribute to him with a finely crafted model bearing his name.
