6128-TSP Duo Jet

The TSP was a short, special run of Jets made around 2004-2005. Features included Dynasonic pickups, a Space Control bridge, humped block markers a V-cutout B-3 Bigsby vibrato, and it was generally considered the closest reissue at the time to George Harrison’s ’57 Duo Jet.

A painstaking replica of George’s ‘first good guitar’!

It was 1961 when George Harrison finally got his hands on a genuine American guitar worthy of his prodigious musical genius. The Duo Jet was Gretch’s entry into the “solidbody” market (though this instrument actually has a couple of body chambers) in 1953. George’s was probably made in 1957 and it was used on many, many Beatles recordings. This exact replica has a number of differences from the standard G6128T including aged binding and inlays, rocking bar bridge, slightly different knob and switch placement, and large body chambers for ultralight weight. Single-coil DynaSonic pickups, hump block inlay fretboard markers, multiple body bindings, and silver plexi pickguard give it the perfect vintage vibe. An arched maple top with mahogany back and sides, a one-piece mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, and Bigsby vibrato are all just like the original.
