Upon arriving at Music Experience, the Electromatic 140th Double Platinum Edition Jet left our guitarists speechless. With a collection of chrome hardware, a matching headstock, a Bigsby B50 vibrato tailpiece, and a commemorative 140th-anniversary headstock plaque, this axe will instantly become the centerpiece of any room it enters. Even its laurel fingerboard with pearloid Hump Block inlays manages to capture the vintage look that modern guitarists still can’t get enough of. Top everything off with its gorgeous 2-tone Stone Platinum/Pearl Platinum gloss finish, and the 140th Double Platinum Edition Jet cements itself as both an authoritative instrument and robust work of art!
What would a Jet be without its flagship mobility? The Electromatic 140th Double Platinum Edition Jet, like other models, features a chambered mahogany body, allowing for substantial acoustic range and a lighter weight, making way for even the most energetic performances. In between the body and headstock rests this Jet’s thin “U” mahogany neck, paired with a single cutaway for lightning-fast note transitioning on any scale. The addition of a Bigsby B50 vibrato tailpiece pulls the performance of this axe together, providing easy access to exclusive, wavy Jet tone.
Welcome to a new world of tonal possibilities. Plunge into authentic Gretsch voicings with the 140th Double Platinum Edition Penguin’s FT-5E Filter'Tron pickups. Gretsch designed these pickups to spit out that beloved Gretsch tone while also serving up a heaping bounty of tones to suit modern playing styles. These powerful pickups exude open, top-end chime, robust low end, a delightfully glassy midrange, and plenty of balanced harmonics. A 3-position toggle switch allows players to experiment with any combination of the two pickups, while volume knobs for each permit further tone sculpting. A master volume and a master tone knob complete the electronics on the 140th Edition Jet for tone that can blend seamlessly with other instruments while exhibiting plenty of classic Gretsch charm.
