Here's a classic Gretsch with killer vibe. The Duo Jet and Jet Firebird are some of my favorite models. Shaped sorta like a Les Paul, Gretsch always called it a solid body. That's a bit of a mistake as the mahogany body is actually routed out making it sort of a semi-solid. Coupled with the arched laminated maple tops, the Jets have a really distinct, lively tone. The routing also give the Jet lighter weight. The 24.6 inch scale one piece mahogany neck has a 12 inch radius rosewood board inlayed with cool hump blocks markers. Dual high Sensitive Filtertron pickups deliver tones from sparkling clean to barking dirty. While these pickups are humbuckers, they don't have the muddy nature of many other humbucking pickups. Clear with a nice ringing tone and a strong upper midrange. Tuners are Gretsch branded sealed units, the bridge is a Gretsch Space Control on a wooden base and the tailpiece is a Gretsch G cutout. A very hip instrument. The finish is Oriental Red and is set off by gold hardware.  Why not be different and buy a Gretsch?

This is a fine playing Gretsch with a nice straight neck and good frets. The pickups sound great and all electronics work fine. Condition wise this is a solid used guitar in VG-EX condition. It shows light to moderate pick, clearcoat, and belt scratches as well as light to moderate indents and dings and some light to moderate hardware corrosion. nothing too bad. Comes in a Gretsch hardshell case.

I've been a longtime Gretsch fan. Gretsch guitars have always been a great alternative to other brands and easily stand on their own in terms of looks, tone and feel. A Jet Firebird is an excellent choice for almost any style of playing. You can get one of these new at the online retailers for a whopping $2324. Here's one for less. BUY IT NOW and own a great guitar!
