The Gretsch G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Duo Jet Guitar celebrates the legacy of the Beatles' George Harrison and is moulded after one of his favourite guitars. Designed with distinctive appointments and modifications that were featured on Harrison's original 1957 Duo Jet, the signature Gretsch embodies the legendary guitarist's style to deliver powerfully vintage tones and a classic feel.

A Bigsby vibrato and rocking bar bridge provide the guitar with a classic look, while offering incredible pitch bends and plenty of sustain. Not only does the guitar offer the sound and look of the old duo jet guitar, but Gretsch have added the modifications as well, such as the black Philips head tremolo arm bolt on the Bigsby tailpiece, the all black colour scheme, and the offset strap button on the lower bout of the guitar. Whether you're a fan of the Beatles, or enjoy George Harrison's playing style, the Signature Duo Jet Guitar is an amazing Gretsch instrument that embodies the sound of a legend.

A Classic Body Design

George Harrison’s signature Gretsch is designed with mid-50s style sound chambers, creating a semi-hollowed design, perfect for making the guitar lightweight, and boosting its resonance. The chambering effects the resonance frequencies of the guitar, producing some overtones while enhancing the overall resonance of the guitar to deliver bright tones. Its full-bodied, rounded sound is thanks to the maple and mahogany combination, with the maple top offering plenty of sparkle and the mahogany body providing excellent warmth.

Mahogany Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard

The guitars mahogany neck offers a comfortably smooth play, creating warm, mellow tones with good presence in the lower mids. The 21-fret rosewood fingerboard featured on the Gretsch is naturally oily and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pours, making the sound richer than that of a maple fingerboard. The mahogany and rosewood combination provides the guitar with complex highs, thick creamy lows, and a very appealing midrange.

DynaSonic Pickups

The Duo Jet guitar features a set of Gretsch’s DynaSonic pickups, which have been built to the original specs of the DynaSonic single coil pickups from the late 50s, deliver the same tones the George Harrison played in The Beatles. Featuring individually adjustable pole pieces and alnico 5 magnets, the pickups offer excellent resonance, and when used together provide rockabilly sounds, old school rhythms, and blues licks. The bridge pickup offers a crisp, classic rock twang, while the neck delivers jazzy chords.

Bigsby B3C Vibrato and “Rocking” Bar Bridge

The Bigsby vibrato tailpiece offers a smooth tremolo system to create classic sounding pitch bend, providing evenly spread movement across all strings. The Bigsby can be used to create subtle movements in chords, adding extra depth and texture to your sound. The vibrato is designed with a black Philips head screw to hold in the tremolo arm, mimicking the same feature on George Harrison’s actual guitar. The bridge if a “rocking’ bar design with a pinned ebony base, adding plenty of sustain to your tone for a classic 60’s sound, filled with dynamic sensitivity. With a classic design, the “rocking” bar bridge and Bigsby tailpiece not only enhances your playing experience, but also adds a visual aspect to the guitar that’s reminiscent of the 60’s.

Classic Styled Hardware

With a design that’s thrown back to the golden days of The Beatles, the signature guitar features perfect hardware to give it a classic look. Its stylish control knobs are Gretsch’s G-shield’s, a design that was used on many of the old Gretsch guitars, and offers knurled edges for an easy grip, letting you quickly dial in any changes to your tone. The Grover Sta-Tite tuners provide a vintage look while delivering quick and easy tuning, as well as incredible string stability. The silver plexi pickguard adds to the guitars look, and the bone nut helps enhance the strings resonance.
