That Great Gretsch Sound”with a snarl!
The special limited-run Flame Power Jet is the classic Duo Jet modified to a new sonic level. The Gretsch G6128T-TV-TM Power Jet guitar is a hard rocker in a classic Gretsch package. The electric guitar sports a single-cutaway semi-hollow mahogany body that's super lightweight, a flamed maple top with a Western Maple Stain finish, one-piece mahogany neck with Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays, high-output TV Jones Power'Tron pickups, Gretsch Bigsby tremolo, chrome hardware, Sperzel locking machine heads, Schaller strap locks, and a Tru-Arc„¢ aluminum rocking bar bridge machined to match the true radius of the fingerboard. Includes Gretsch G6238 deluxe hardshell guitar case.
TV Jones PowerTron
The PowerTron produces strong midrange presence and high output while retaining the sparkle and bass note clarity of the TV Classic pickup.
Tru-Arc„¢ Rocking Bar Bridge
The Tru-Arc„¢ bridge rocking bar on the Flame Power Jet is cut from aluminum tubular stock, bent to a continuous radius to match the fingerboard, then precisely machined for even string height and consistently adjustable action across all strings. The result: unsurpassed response and feel.

The features of this flame maple power jet should be well known to you by now. I love the tru arc bridge and the flamey orange top. I personally do not care for the powertron pickups, but that's me. Some of my buddies love them. The ebony and the fit and finish are to die for. The bigsby returns to tune!!!!!! I have a tremendous pride in ownership of this cool powerjet. I did swap the leads going to the pickup volumes (so I swapped the leads between the pickup hot and the switch lead) so that it behaves more like a les paul and doesn't kill your treble when you turn it down a little. Thanks Chris and Musician's Friend. Excellent value in a cool guitar.
This has become one of my primary guitars. Besides being gorgeous, it is fantastic and inspiring to play. Another review said that the guitar stayed in tune after using the Bigsby. My guitar stayed in tune as well. The action is great. All the frets are even and I couldn't find a single dead spot or buzzing fret after lowering the bridge too low even for me, which I didn't think was possible.I should mention that no setup was performed on it after I received it. I think the guys at MF's Private Reserve double checked it and set it up to factory specs. Chris was awesome in every way. It was completely low key, no pressure, honest, straightforward help in finding the right guitar for me. I discovered some of his background includes working for a luthier, so he probably has quite a bit of special knowledge and experience with guitars.People claim the Duo/Power Jet is lighter than expected because the body is chambered. This is lighter and more comfortable to me than a Les Paul but I'm used to a Parker Fly so the weight seems doable but not extraordinarily light.The TV Jones PowerTrons are supposedly a more "modern" than FilterTrons or Dynasonics. I agree. They aren't as classic or twangy as a non-PowerTron-equipped Gretch, but they don't sound like super clean double humbuckers on a Les Paul either. They do have their own character, I knew what I was buying, and I think they sound great. If you want the Duo Jet with a more classic sound, check out the standard Duo Jet or Duo Jet with Dynasonic pickups.It comes with two upgrades I was planning on doing to a Duo Jet: the awesome Tru-Arc Bullet bridge (that is radius matched to the fretboard) and Sperzel locking tuners. I highly recommend them.Overall, I love it. Sounds, looks, and plays great. Plus, I wouldn't hesitate to call Chris up the next time I needed help with something.
