About B Stock:
This is a B-Stock or factory blemished guitar. It is not a return or refurbished instrument and it is not used. Almost without exception the blemishes we see are nearly imperceptible in the form of minor hazing or scuffing on the finish, or a very small binding inconsistency. These blemishes are always very minor and can save you hundreds of dollars on your purchase! We inspect each B-Stock extensively before we ship and guarantee that you will be satisfied with your purchase with our return policy. If you have any questions about the nature of these "B" Stock instruments please feel free to reach out to us!
This is the G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Model from the Gretsch Professional Collection. It's a top of the line Professional series model that recreates George's guitar perfectly. The guitar plays great and sounds amazing. The Dynasonic pickups sound excellent with a big full bodied unrestrained bass response and very crisp and clear high frequencies. They are a perfect match for the guitar. They sound absolutely stunning when played clean and respond well to a fair amount of gain. The guitar is well suited for a great variety of styles but is of course, perfect for that early Beatles sound! We are a long standing fully authorized independent Gretsch guitar dealer. This is a B-Stock guitar and comes with the deluxe tweed Gretsch hard case, all documentation and the Gretsch Limited lifetime warranty. If you have any questions at all please feel free to reach out to us!
About the G6128T-GH (from gretsch.com)
Gretsch celebrates the legacy of George Harrison with the G6128T-GH George Harrison SIGNATURE Duo Jet® guitar, modeled on the instrument that the legendary guitarist often referred to as his "first real decent guitar."
Features include distinctive appointments and modifications found on Harrison's original 1957 Gretsch Duo Jet, which he purchased secondhand in the very early 1960s. These include a lightweight mid-'50s-style chambered body, all-BLACK color scheme (arched maple top, mahogany back and sides, and back of the one-piece mahogany neck), Bigsby® B3C tailpiece with a black Phillips head tremolo arm pivot bolt, and an offset strap button on lower bout. Other features include three-ply body binding (white-black-white), single-ply white neck and headstock binding, 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with 12" radius and hump-block pearloid inlays, two single-coil DynaSonicTM pickups, vintage-style "rocking bar" bridge with rosewood base, silver plexi pickguard, chrome-plated Grover® V98CM Sta-TiteTM tuners, Gretsch "G" arrow control knobs, chrome plated hardware, Harrison's signature on the truss rod cover and a premium tweed case.

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.
