MALCOLM YOUNG IS, WITHOUT QUESTION, ONE OF THE GREATEST GUITARISTS IN ROCK AND ROLL HISTORY.

FOR OVER 40 YEARS HIS RIFFS HAVE INSPIRED GENERATIONS OF ROCK & METAL GUITARISTS.

“MAL’S THE BAND’S FOUNDATION. HE’S ROCK SOLID AND HE PUMPS IT ALONG WITH THE POWER OF A MACHINE.

SOMETIMES I LOOK AT MALCOLM WHILE HE’S PLAYING, AND I’M COMPLETELY AWESTRUCK BY THE SHEER POWER OF IT…

I MEAN, AS SOON AS YOU HEAR THAT FIRST…CHORD, YOU KNOW IT’S HIM. TO DO THIS… YOU HAVE TO BE A MASTER OF RHYTHM, AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT MAL IS.” - ANGUS YOUNG

RECREATING THE BEAST

To honor this legendary rock icon, the Gretsch Custom Shop is proud to offer the Malcolm Young G6131MY-CS “Salute” Jet™.
Beginning in 2008, the Gretsch team painstakingly examined and documented Malcolm’s famed #1 guitar: a battle-worn ’63 Jet Firebird™.

THE BEAST UNLEASHED

After hours of development and testing, the final prototype was placed in Malcolm’s hands and the cannons of rock erupted.
