From the Gretsch Professional Collection comes a cutting-edge update of the company’s vintage classic electric guitar to fuel a new generation of guitarists looking to take their music into the future. The Gretsch G6229 Limited-edition Sparkle Jet BT combines the harmonic resonance of a chambered mahogany body and a maple top with the sonic potency of Gretsch’s full-spectrum Broad’Tron BT-65 humbuckers and the fluid pitch expression of a genuine Bigsby string-through vibrato tailpiece to deliver a staggering range of tone. From shimmering cleans to beastly overdrive, your every wish is your Sparkle Jet’s command.

    Chambered mahogany body for harmonically rich tone

    For the G6229 Limited-edition Sparkle Jet BT, Gretsch starts with a select 1.85-inch-thick mahogany body and maple top combo that delivers strong, balanced midrange. Strategic body chambering provides smooth attack and extended, harmonically lush bandwidth while reducing weight — which you’ll definitely appreciate during marathon gigs! This chambered tonewood recipe, key to the classic Jet sound, serves as the tonal foundation to which Gretsch adds a pair of remarkable humbucking pickups.

    Broad’Tron BT-65 pickups for power and fidelitye

    The G6229 Limited-edition Sparkle Jet BT is powered by Gretsch’s outstanding Broad’Tron BT-65 pickups. Designed by renowned pickup guru Tim Shaw, the BT-65 harnesses this guitar’s broad sonic range and flawlessly delivers its extended lows, powerful mids, and smooth, clear high end in a masterful display of full-spectrum fidelity and wall-shaking power. You’ll find the Limited-edition Jet BT has you covered for any genre-hopping live gig or recording session. From sparkling cleans to brutal overdrive — and all tonal colors in between — everything’s on the menu. Guitarists at Music Experience love these pickups. We’re sure you will, too.

    Gretsch’s legacy in American music

    The G6229TG Limited-edition Sparkle Jet BT transports you back to Gretsch’s roots in American music. Everyone knows Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but did you know that got their start in 1883 as a banjo company? It wasn’t long before Gretsch was making mandolins, ukuleles, and eventually flat-top and lap steel guitars, contributing to the very roots of American music. So when you make music on a Gretsch, you’re playing more than a great instrument, you’re playing a piece of American music history.

    What Gretsch Says...

    For over 65 years the Gretsch® Jet™ has fueled stages and studios, producing some of the greatest sounds in rock 'n' roll history. The all-new G6229TG Limited Edition Players Edition Sparkle Jet™ BT with Bigsby® and Gold Hardware is the culmination of over half a century of tonal and performance magic, delivered in two new head-turning finishes — Champagne Sparkle or Ocean Turquoise Sparkle with black pickguards.

    Chambered Mahogany Bodies — Thick and Acoustically Rich

    Each Jet BT begins with a select mahogany body with 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 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

    Responding to players' need for increased comfort, the Jet BT features a lowered neck set that greatly improves fret-hand mobility while also giving the picking hand a closer approach, increasing comfort and accuracy. Our new full-access rolled cutaway and tapered heel allows the free access to upper frets without awkward pivoting or palm obstruction. This sleek design remains hidden, preserving a vintage aesthetic – a critical feature that is meant to be felt, not seen. The Jet BT comes equipped with additional Players Edition features that give you total control of your tone and performance, including no-load master tone pot with Squeezebox™ capacitor, master volume with treble bleed circuit and individual pickup volume controls.
