However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Body Materials

The Gretsch G6129T-1957 Silver Jet is beautifully crafted with a chambered mahogany body with arched laminated maple top, providing you with a lightweight guitar. This semi-hollow design provides the same properties as a solid bodied guitar, but with reduced weight.

DynaSonic™ Single-Coil Pickups

DynaSonic single-coil pickups have been a Gretsch standard since the late '40s, and were one of the first pickups to offer individually adjustable pole-pieces. These powerful pickups deliver shimmering highs and a rich, full bass response and will add impact to any performance. Achieving the perfect sound is easy with the three-way toggle switch, along with independent volume controls, master volume and master tone control.

Space Control™ Roller bridge

This innovative style bridge is named after its method of adjusting the spacing between each string. Designed by Gretsch’s own Jimmie Webster, the Space Control bridge offers a simple adjustment of the spacing between each string, using the six wheel-shaped saddles positioned along a threaded bar. This allows the player to set a broad string spread for finger-style work or a narrow spread for pick and chord work.

Bigsby B3C Vibrato

Like many guitars by Gretsch, the Silver Jet features a Bigsby B3C Vibrato tailpiece which 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.

Ornate Details

The eye-catching guitar not only features a silver sparkle finish, but also comes with a full host of ornate details that boast classic Gretsch features. These iconic details include Space Control™ bridge, Bigsby® B3C vibrato tailpiece, silver plexi pickguard with Gretsch® logo, knurled strap retainer knobs, G-Arrow control knobs and Grover® Sta-Tite™ die-cast tuners. This stunning guitar also comes complete with a deluxe hardshell case for storage and transportation.
