G6128T-53 Vintage Select ’53 Duo Jet with Bigsby, TV Jones, Black

Inspired by the pivotal and prolific years of Gretsch’s 1950s and early ’60s golden age, Vintage Select Edition guitars are designed for the player who appreciates the finest in musical instrument heritage. The G6128T-53 Vintage Select ’53 Duo Jet™ with Bigsby® rocks that legacy with a finely crafted new take on one of Gretsch’s first and dearest models.

The Duo Jet debuted in 1953 as Gretsch’s flagship “solid body” guitar, although its signature power and punch came from its chambered mahogany design, which magnifies harmonic richness by letting air resonate between the top and body for livelier and more articulate tone. That’s all here on this original-era beauty, along with special touches including the rare Gretsch “script” headstock logo and dual TV Jones® T-Armond™ pickups that keenly replicate the vintage DynaSonic™ sound.
