The 1950s and early '60s were some of the most prolific and pivotal years for Gretsch guitars, and they set the course for many of the company's future designs. This G6129T-59 pays homage to those golden-era guitars, and it's a stellar instrument from top to bottom. If you've been in the market for a vintage Gretsch but need something with modern reliability, this Vintage Select '59 Silver Jet is an excellent choice.
The G6129T-59 features a chambered mahogany body that delivers a powerful, punchy tone rich with harmonics. Its arched laminated maple top adds clarity and brightness to its voice, and its TV Jones Classic pickups perfectly recreate that unmistakable vintage Filter'Tron sound. Not only does this guitar sound fantastic, but it plays great, too - its Vintage "V" shaped mahogany neck has a nice, comfortable feel, and its ebony fingerboard plays with a delightfully smooth response.
On top of its gorgeous sound and feel, the G6129T-59 looks absolutely stunning. While its Silver Sparkle finish is the centerpiece of its elegant aesthetic, its pearloid thumbnail inlays, G-arrow knobs, and aged white binding round out its design and give it plenty of old-school charm.
Complete with a Bigsby® B3CB tailpiece that allows for deep bends and vibrato, the G6129T-59 is perfect for vintage Gretsch enthusiasts who need something that can keep up with the modern player.
