Gretsch G6131-MY-RB Malcolm Young Limited Edition "The Beast"


As the second Signature Edition G6131-MY-RB, Gretsch is releasing a strictly limited version of Malcolm Young's early "Beast", which was originally unmodified and equipped with three pickups. Malcolm Young used this Firebird Red version of the guitar in the early AC/DC phase and recorded the hard rock hit "It's a Long Way to The Top" with it. Shortly thereafter, Young subjected the guitar to radical mods, removing the finish and leaving only the TV Jones PowerTron on the bridge.

Here is the Gretsch G6131-MY-RB fully equipped, exactly like Young's "Beast" was equipped in the early days. Two TV Jones® Ray Butts Ful-Fidelity Filter'Tron pickups on the neck and bridge provide that typical vintage Gretsch voicing that unmistakably carries AC/DC genes. The TV Jones® Starwood humbucker in the middle completes the overall package with its fat and powerful sound. Overall: pure AC/DC power! As usual with Gretsch, each of the three pickups has its own volume control. A chambered mahogany body with a maple top ensures excellent resonance and also makes the G6131-MY-RB a lightweight. An ebony fingerboard with a zero fret and the distinctive Malcolm Young signature on the truss rod cover complete the overall picture. This limited edition G6131-MY-RB was only shipped 60 times across Europe.
