Sparkle Jets

These limited edition run Gretsch limited-edition Players Edition Sparkle Jets come with gold hardware throughout, in either Champagne Sparkle or Ocean Turquoise Sparkle finishes. They have the very handy string-thru Bigsby B7GP vibrato system, making it easy to re-string. This is paired with a set of Gotoh locking tuners along with an anchored Tune-o-Matic bridge, which should mean rock-solid tuning throughout.
