Gretsch Original G6128T Duo Jet · Electric Guitar

Hardly any other guitar company has made such a meteoric rise as Gretsch with the rock'n roll that emerged in the 50s. Gretsch is a synonym for this music style. The G6128T Duo Jet from the original series is such a classic rock'n roll/rockabilly axe: the most pronounced user was Cliff Gallup from the Blue Caps, Gene Vincent's band. Like all Jet models, the mahogany body has hollow chambers, a pair of Filtertron pickups provide the official twang. An iconic Bigsby Tremolo is mandatory for this guitar!

The classic Gretsch® Duo Jet™ High Sensitive Filter'Tron ™ pickups, "tone switch" circuitry, ebony fingerboard with Neo-Classic ™ thumbnail inlays, SpaceControl™ bridge, Gretsch by Bigsby® B3C vibrato Tailpiece and mahogany stain finish with jet black top.

Gretsch Original
Gretsch was founded in 1883 by Friedrich Gretsch, a recent immigrant to the US from Germany who intended to manufacture banjos, tambourines, and drums. In 1895, Friedrich Gretsch died at the age of 39 and the already successful company was taken over by his son, Fred, who guided it into even greater profitability. By 1916, the company moved into a large 10-story building in Brooklyn, New York and became one of the most prominent American musical instrument makers. In the late 30s Gretsch began producing guitars in a serious way and was extremely popular in the late 50s and early 60s. After sliding into disfavour and eventual bankruptcy in the 70s and 80s, Gretsch was successfully revived by Fred Gretsch III in 1989. Most modern-era Gretsch guitars are manufactured in the far and further east, although US-made "Custom Shop" models are sometimes available. In 2003 Gretsch entered an agreement with Fender Musical Instruments Company, in which Gretsch would continue to own the company, but FMIC would handle most development, distribution and sales. This agreement has proven to be very successful, and many Gretsch fans believe the company is currently experiencing a second golden era.
