Gretsch G6131SMY Malcolm Young Signature


I love bizarre guitars with too many knobs and too many pickups, too much chrome and awkward outlines, but sometimes I fall for simplicity in its purest form, and I can only bow before this beautiful Gretsch G6131SMY, the Malcolm Young signature version of the Duo Jet, that has nothing too much: single bridge FilterTron, wraparound bridge, two knobs, that's it - and an arched laminated maple top on a semi-hollow symmetrical double-cutaway body. Just perfect.

  1. Its styling perfectly reflects Malcolm's playing: simple, no-frills, and completely one-of-a-kind.
