6-string Electric Guitar with Chambered Mahogany Body, Maple Top, Mahogany Neck, Laurel Fretboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups - 2-tone Stone Platinum/Pearl Platinum


Take to the Skies with this 140th Anniversary Jet

Gretsch is celebrating their 140th anniversary, and with this celebration comes the Electromatic 140th Double Platinum Edition Jet. This axe carries the same authentic Gretsch style and appointments, with exciting new features for modern players. Built with a maple top, lightweight chambered mahogany body, and maple neck, you’ll find this guitar is just as stunning to maneuver as it sounds. And it’s all topped off with a pair of FT-5E Filter’Tron humbucking pickups, delivering crisp Jet tones that are easily manipulated with a 3-way pickup selector switch and a volume/tone knob duo to boot. Whether you’re a vintage guitar fanatic or devout shredder, you’ll find yourself in the annals of history with the Electromatic 140th Double Platinum Edition Jet.


New appointments, same old good looks

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.


First-rate maneuverability

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.


Authentic Gretsch voicing: Filter'Tron pickups

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.
