Gretsch Power Jet

Gretsch Power Jets


For starters, this is a beautiful guitar. It’s hard to admire the finish just from a picture. If, at the very least, you need to look cool, then this is a good place to start. Gretsch spared no expense on the hardware either with its TV Jones Power’Tron pickups, original Bigsby and locking Sperzel tuners. If you indeed end up doing more than just staring at it, the Power Jet won’t disappoint. It has a smooth neck with a flat radius along with a single cutaway that gives you easy access to bending those high notes. Its semi-hollow mahogany body is light and will ensure being able to tough out that encore with a little less grimacing. Luckily, the Gretsch’s tone stands toe to toe with the craftsmanship. Right away, there is that Gretsch mid-range punch. Plugged straight into the Tiny Terror Combo, it’s a breeze to dial up a clarity and thickness that would easily win over some new fans. The bridge pickup shows off the biting highs whereas the bass pickup was notably mellow. Overall, the tone cleans up extremely well when the volume knobs are rolled back a bit. The Power Jet should retail in stores around $2,000 and this thing is worth every penny. LIST PRICE: $3,025.00—JASON BULLOCK & SCHYLAR SHOATES
