Gretsch Guitars Introducing Special Malcolm Young Guitar
Gretsch guitars will pay tribute to the late Malcolm Young of AC/DC with the introduction of his own signature model, the G6131-MY Malcolm Young Signature Jet.
Priced at $3, 749, the G6131-MY pays homage to Young’s famously battle-hardened Gretsch Jet, which was nicknamed “The Beast.” Young customized the instrument himself by removing two of the three pickups and stripping away the finish. The model arrives in November.
“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,” reads the description.
Young passed away November 18, 2017 at the age of 64.
