This Gretsch Duo-Jet is in near mint almost unplayed condition. The U shaped neck profile feels great in hand. This guitar shows no signs of fret wear and the frets have a lifetime of playing left in them. The TV Jones Filter'Tron pickups sound fantastic and deliver a little more bite, are hotter than vintage Filter'Trons and have the super clear gnarly tone that Gretsch guitars are famous for. The Bigsby tailpiece functions smoothly and adds to the overall feel, coolness, and inspiration of this guitar. The tune-o-matic style bridge is awesome for keeping this guitar's intonation solid. The 1957 style humptop inlays are super cool and look attractive against the dark rosewood fingerboard. The G6128T-89 is a brand new model which was just released this year and is an overall fantastic offering from Gretsch guitars. A gem of a guitar shipped out safely and promptly from our little shop here in Clarksville, Tennessee, to your front door.
From Gretsch: 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.
