Click any picture for supersize view!

Gretsch fans have waited years for this great guitar! Made in the USA by the Gretsch Custom Shop, this one NAILS the tone and vibe of a vintage Duo Jet. Incredible quality, tone and attention to detail.  They really did their homework on this one and it's paid off. The closest you can get to a real 57 without the crazy price tag. The chambered body is mahogany for light weight and great tone. The arched, laminated maple top adds brightness. The 24.6 inch mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearloid humpblock inlays. Dual Seymour Duncan Dynasonic pickups deliver vintage tone. A Bigsby vibrato, rocking bar bridge and Grover Sta-Tite tuners round out the hardware. The finish is Nitrocellulose Lacquer and features a black top and walnut sides. The guitar comes from the factory with a relic aging job to simulate years of wear and tear. It really looks like a 50 year old guitar! Limited to a total of 75 pieces worldwide, this Duo Jet Relic is a surefire must have for your collection!

This Gretsch plays great and has awesome tone. The setup is excellent and the neck feels great. The Seymour Duncan pickups really sound like the originals, nailing that bright and loud tone that 50s Dearmonds have. I am greatly impressed by this guitar. This instrument has seen very little playing time and use. It's as close to New Old Stock as you get with a relic guitar. Comes in original tweed case with tons of case candy and original shipping carton.

Many players love the comfort and tone of a Dyna loaded Duo Jet. It's hard to argue with the snap, definition and growl of this combination. This Custom Shop relic really captures the great parts of a 57 Duo Jet without the $10K price tag. A new 6128TDS-R will cost you $4500.00 in stores, IF you can find one. My price is much, much lower.
