Featuring the same distinctive appointments and modifications found of the original 1957 Gretsch Duo Jet owned by Harrison, this is a truly remarkable model for collectors, fans, and anyone else who appreciates an exceptional guitar. Each model is supplied with a G6276 premium solid body guitar hardshell case in tweed.
Sleek single-cutaway style
The Gretsch G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Duo Jet features a unique mid-'50s body chamber style. Built using mahogany, the body generates a smooth and sophisticated energy. Paired with the body is a sleek arched laminated maple top, which protects the warmth within they body whilst rounding out the upper frequencies to ensure considerable clarity. The single-cutaway design is a timeless classic, exuding classic style with a modern character.
The body has been finished in no nonsense black, which is complemented by the three-ply binding (white-black-white). The upper bout is protected by a silver plexi pickguard to prevent unwanted nicks and scrapes from affecting the finish.
Fast playing neck
Fitted to the body is a single-piece mahogany neck, which has been treated to a gloss urethane finish to guarantee a smooth and fast playing feel. Single-ply white binding extends along the neck and around the headstock. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with pearloid hump-block position inlays.
The Gretsch G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Duo Jet is home to a pair of DynaSonic single-coil pickups, which deliver classic rock 'n' roll tones when given a nudge in the right direction. Offering a sparkling output of the highest order, the DynaSonic respond beautifully to both fingerstyle and flatpicked performances. Control over the pickups comes in the form of independent volume controls for each pickup, as well as a master tone knob.
Whether you're an amateur or a professional, the G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Duo Jet Guitar boasts a hardware setup that Harrison himself would be proud of. The body is home to a rocking bar bridge with ebony base, which is paired with a Bigsby B3C tailpiece - complete with a black Philips head tremolo arm pivot bolt. The headstock is home to Grover Sta-Tite die-cast tuning machines, which uphold string tuning with precision.
The Gretsch G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Duo Jet Guitar in Black is as close to the original as you can get, even down to the offset strap button on the lower bout. With signature touches including Harrison's signature on the truss rod cover, this is an outstanding model for the discerning guitarist.
