Description

With its vintage authenticity, exceptional tone, and effortless playability, the G6128T-57 Vintage Select Duo Jet is chock-full of undeniable Gretsch vibe. The guitar's chambered mahogany body and vintage "V" shaped neck provide excellent resonance and stability throughout. The G6128T-57's dual TV Jones T-Armond pickups are designed to recreate the original 1957 Duo Jet's DynaSonic pickup tone. A few other nice touches on the G6128T-57 Duo Jet include vintage pearloid hump-block inlays, a SynchroSonic bridge, and a gold plexi Gretsch logo pickguard, all of which aid in the guitar's playability while also exemplifying its vintage aesthetic. If you're after a classic guitar in terms of tone, looks, and feel, then this Gretsch is a superb choice.

About the Guitar (from Gretsch):

Inspired by the pivotal and prolific years of Gretsch's 1950s and early '60s golden age, Vintage Select Edition guitars are designed for the player who appreciates the finest in musical instrument heritage. In smartly stylish Cadillac Green with gold hardware, the new G6128T-57 Vintage Select '57 Duo Jet with Bigsby rocks that legacy to perfection.

The Duo Jet is the flagship Gretsch "solid body" guitar, introduced in the 1950s and packing signature power and punch from its chambered mahogany body, which magnifies harmonic richness by letting air resonate between the top and body for livelier and more articulate tone. Back then, Gretsch produced a very small run of Duo Jets in handsomely uptown Cadillac Green with gold hardware, which is exactly what you have here, along with dual TV Jones T-Armond pickups that replicate the vintage DynaSonic sound.

Why We Love Gretsch

Gretsch has been handcrafting guitars for over 135 years. The unique sound of the Gretsch semi-hollow body guitar has become synonymous with rockabilly music, one of the first styles of rock ‘n roll. Gretsch guitars are a favorite among musicians like Chet Atkins, Brian Setzer and George Harrison. At Cream City Music, we love Gretsch too, which is why we always have a huge selection of new, used and vintage Gretsch guitars in stock.
