This is a demo model guitar that is currently on display in our showroom. The guitar is in excellent condition but does show evidence of being unboxed, handled and played in our showroom. There is some very light scratching on the pickguard as well as some very minor surface scratching on the back of the guitar. These scratches could be buffed out with minimal effort. The guitar will ship as shown with full warranty and all the original factory documentation and packaging. We are authorized to give a great deal on our demo model Gretsch guitars! Our professional luthiers will fully inspect and set up the guitar before we ship. If you have any questions about this guitar or any of our great gear please let us know.
Vintage Select Edition guitars are designed for the player who appreciates the finest in musical instrument heritage. Our all-new G6128T-89VS Vintage Select '89 Duo Jet with Bigsby® pays homage to a classic late-'80s design that rocked the forefront of the Pacific Northwest grunge movement that overtook the music world in the early 1990s.
Delivering signature solid-body power and punch, the G6128T-89VS features period-correct chambered mahogany construction, which magnifies harmonic richness by letting air resonate between the top and body for livelier and more articulate tone. TV Jones® TV Classic™ Plus bridge and TV Jones TV Classic neck pickups replicate that unmistakable vintage Filter'Tron™ sound to fabulous sonic effect, and can be intuitively commanded using a versatile control layout featuring master volume with treble bleed circuit, master tone, individual pickup volume controls and three-way pickup toggle switch.
Other features include a set maple neck, 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard with pearloid Hump Block inlays, bone nut, G-arrow knobs, Bigsby® vibrato tailpiece, Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with pinned rosewood base and Gotoh® tuners.
This grunge-era beauty comes in classic Black with silver pickguard, late-'80s black headstock with Gretsch logo and horseshoe inlay and nickel hardware.

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.
