In 2000, James played a Gretsch Silver Jet Reissue mostly for "Glass and the Ghost Children" and "Tonight, Tonight". The features of the model James played are consistent with that of models made after the company restarted its guitar production in Japan in 1989, where it produced this model from 1989-1993.

Those features are:
FilterTron Pickups
Gretsch-branded Bigsby
Wide headstock with upside-down horseshoe logo (although James put a sticker over it)
3 Knobs in a triangle pattern
Only 1 switch
Humpback Inlays
