About

I'm very pleased to be able to offer this stunning, pre-owned Gretsch Duo Jet here for sale. This one really captures that iconic early Duo Jet style and spec, as well as some great Jeff Beck, George Harrison and Julian Lage spec vibes I must say. All the classic appointments of the 50s Jet model, black front with a dark walnut stain mahogany back. Two Dyna-sonic pickups and a USA Bigsby B7. A faithful recreation with a few modern improvements from the skilled Terada, Japan Gretsch factory here. 

The modern improvements include details such as a Gretsch treble bleed on the CTS 450 series master volume control pot, a CTS 450 series no-load master tone with Gretsch 'Squeezebox' capacitor, Gotoh locking tuners and a beautifully rolled neck heel edge for comfy upper access. But admiring it, it is truly capturing the vintage early 50s Jet looks and feel. They've done a great job with this model, I think it's safe to say. 

One previous owner from new. It sounds absolutely stunning, the array of tones available thanks to the quality dynasonic pickups and their controls, makes for a versatile guitar showcasing the chambered body tonal character really well too. 

Condition - This example is in a well looked after condition, played a little but clearly well cared for. We see a couple of minor surface marks just under the bigsby's roller, clearly from feeding strings under it so pretty honest marks for a Bigsby equipped guitar. On the rear, we have a couple of minor surface marks, near to the main control plate area, the rest is spotless. There is a small dink on the lower bout side, other than that, no dinks elsewhere. Honest signs of use for it's 4 years of existence, but definitely no signs of abuse at all, this guitar has been cared for and it shows. Original, perfect condition hardcase included, even the original outer cardboard box is currently still with the guitar.  As some of you may know, I specialise in guitar wiring, both in kits and in house with repair/mod work, and I was super impressed by the quality of the factory wiring on this. Neatly done with quality parts throughout, superb to see a factory putting this quality out as many don't.

It has been fully inspected by me, here at the Home of Tone. Frets polished, fingerboard conditioned with MusicNomad F-One oil, strung with Stringjoy 11-50 gauge strings.
