Description

Chambered Mahogany Bodies - Thick and Acoustically Rich
Each Jet BT initially features a carefully selected mahogany body with a maple top that produces a powerful and balanced midrange, while the chambered body offers a smooth attack and an incredibly wide and harmonically rich extended range.

Broad'Tron™ BT65 Pickups - Power & Fidelity
This powerful platform is powered by the Gretsch Broad'Tron™ BT65 cartridge. Designed by the renowned Tim Shaw, the BT65 meticulously captures the guitar's tonal palette, reproducing powerful midrange, extended bass, and crystal clear, smooth treble. The result is the perfect blend of breakthrough power and full-spectrum fidelity, delivering unparalleled overdrive and shimmering cleans at the stomp of a switch.

Players Edition Comfort, Control & Performance
In response to players' needs for more comfort, the Jet BT features a drop neck set that greatly increases fret hand mobility while allowing the picking hand to be closer together for increased comfort and accuracy. A new rolled cutaway and full-access tapered heel allows free access to the upper frets without awkward pivoting or palm obstruction. This sleek design remains hidden and maintains a vintage aesthetic. This is an important characteristic that should be felt, not seen.

Jet BT is equipped with additional Players Edition features for complete control over tone and performance, including a load-free master tone pot with Squeezebox™ capacitor, master volume with treble bleed circuit, and individual pickup volume controls.
