The 1950's and '60s are considered the Golden Years of Gretsch guitars production. With the Vintage Select range they deliver a fitting tribute to the timeless guitars manufactured during this period. The Gretsch G6128T-59 Vintage Select '59 Duo Jet with Bigsby is an outstanding modern take on an original great.
With an arched Laminated Maple top on a Mahogany body, the G6128T-59 Vintage Select Duo Jet is finished in the classic Duo Jet Black. The flagship model in the Gretsch Solid Body range, the Duo Jet has a really rich harmonic power. By letting air resonate between the top and the body through its chambered Mahogany construction, the Duo Jet has a super lively and articulate tone.
The Maple neck features a Vintage V profile, comfortable underhand and offering a great position for both heavy chordal work and more delicate lead playing. The 22 Medium Jumbo frets bear the classic aged Pearloid Thumbnail inlays and give that familiar Gretsch aesthetic.
Loaded with a pair of TV Jones Classic pickups you get vintage growl with superb clarity. 1959 marked the first year that Filter'Tron pickups appeared on the Jet, and the dual TV Jones Classic pickups replicate that unmistakable vintage Filter'Tron tone in incredible fashion. Combined with the Bigsby vibrato unit, you can emulate all your favourite country and rockabilly licks without compromising on tuning stability.
The Gretsch G6128T-59 Vintage Select '59 Duo Jet is a great tribute to some of the finest guitars ever produced.View Full Specs
