Gretsch G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Duo Jet
Gretsch G6128T-GH George Harrison Duo Jet
The G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Duo Jet guitar celebrates the legacy of George Harrison — modeled on the instrument that the legendary guitarist often referred to as his first real decent guitar. It offers the distinctive appointments and modifications found on Harrison’s original 1957 Gretsch Duo Jet, which he purchased secondhand in the early 1960s.
This is the iconic guitar that George treasured in his Cavern Club and Hamburg days – and used to record the Beatles' first album. It's the insistent tone you hear on "I Saw Her Standing There." It also hearkens back to George's rockabilly influences, especially legendary Duo Jet user Cliff Gallup from Gene Vincent and his Blue Caps. DynaSonic single coils in a chambered mahogany body give this guitar a resonant and muscular, yet articulate, chime that sounds fantastic clean or overdriven through Vox and Fender amps (for a start). This is a flavor of 'that great Gretsch sound' that you'll want to harness for your own musical purposes!
Features include a lightweight mid-’50s-style chambered body, 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, 12"-radius 22-fret rosewood fingerboard hump-block pearloid inlays, two single-coil DynaSonic single-coil pickups, vintage-style rocking bar bridge with rosewood base, silver plexi pickguard, chrome-plated Grover V98CM Sta-Tite tuners, Gretsch G-Arrow control knobs, chrome-plated hardware, Harrison’s signature on the truss rod cover and a premium tweed hardshell case.
