What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gretsch G6228FM Players Edition Jet BT with V-Stoptail, Flame Maple Top and Ebony Fingerboard is a fantastic Solid Body Guitar model by Gretsch.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Gretsch G6228FM Jet BT Guitar's chambered mahogany body with Flame maple top, comfortable U-shaped neck, unique V-Stop tailpiece, Gotoh locking machine heads and the powerful Broadtron BT65 Humbucker pickups.
What Gretsch has to say:
Power, Fidelity & Complete Tonal Control The all-new G6228FM Players Edition Jet™ BT Single-Cut with "V" Stoptail gives you powerful overdrive and shimmering clean at the stomp of a switch.
Chambered Mahogany Bodies — Thick and Acoustically Rich Each Jet BT begins with a select 1.85" mahogany body with tiger flame maple top that produces a strong, balanced mid-range while the chambered body delivers a smooth attack and extended bandwidth that is remarkably wide and harmonically rich.
Broad'Tron™ BT65 Pickups – Power & Fidelity
This powerful platform is fueled by all-new Gretsch Broad'Tron™ BT65 pickups.
Designed by the famed Tim Shaw, the BT65 meticulously captures the guitar's sonic palette and reproduces powerful mids, extended lows and an exceptionally clear, yet smooth high-end.
The result is the perfect mixture of wall-shaking power and full-spectrum fidelity that delivers unparalleled overdrive and shimmering cleans — all at the stomp of a switch.
Players Edition Comfort, Control & Performance The Jet™ BT comes equipped with the Players Edition premium feature set, providing you with total control of your tone.
