Winyard Guitars custom "Salute" to the 1963 Gretsch G6131 Jet Firebird that brought all of Malcolm Young's classic AC/DC riffs to the world.

Based on a new Gretsch Double Jet, all metal and electrical parts have been stripped, upgraded and replaced with the best possible current alternatives. Yellowed, aged, relic'd, and given every ounce of mojo typical of a guitar that has seen hundreds of gigs around the world. Brand new Filtertron hand-made by Fletcher Pickups (closest possible replica of Malcolm's Gretsch pickup that was re-wound by John Diggins in Birmingham) and a complete Professional fret-level and crown, making this the best sounding AND playing MY available. Gretsch hard case is included .  Beautiful 7lb 4oz/3.28kg weight and lovely balance.
Twin strap pins so the guitar is steady and does not fall when stood up.
