Semi-Hollow Body Construction
The Gretsch G6128T-1962 Duo Jet is designed with mid-50s style sound chambers, for a semi-hollowed design, making the guitar lightweight, and offering a superb resonance. Its classic hollow body design offers crisp overtones while enhancing the overall resonance of the guitar, delivering bright tones. Its full-bodied, rounded sound is thanks to the laminated maple and mahogany combination, with the arched laminated maple top offering plenty of sparkle, while the mahogany body provides excellent warmth.
High Sensitive Filter'Tron Pickups
The Gretsch G6128T-1962 Duo Jet is equipped with two high sensitive Filter'Tron humbucking pickups, located in the bridge and neck position. These deliver a pristine high end, glassy midrange, robust low end and balanced harmonics for tone that blends seamlessly with other instruments. These type of pickups filter out undesirable hum, neon noises, crackle and electrical disturbance that is commonly associated with single-coil pickups. Controlling these pickups is easy with the "G"-Arrow control knobs, that offer independent volume, and a master volume, as well as a 3-position toggle switch for tonal variations.
Zero Fret Nut
Not only does the Gretsch G6128T-1962 Duo Jet provide the perfect combination of superb tone and classic looks, it is also equipped with a zero fret nut. Zero-Fret is a cleverly designed fret that holds the strings the correct distance above the other frets eliminating variances and evening out the string action for a clean tone.
Bigsby B3C Vibrato Tailpiece
Like many guitars by Gretsch, the G6128T-1962 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.
The G6128T-1962 Duo Jet also comes heavily equipped with high quality appointments that make it worthy of wearing the Gretsch name. The G6128T offers total sophistication with its Neo Classic "Thumbnail" Inlay position markers, zero fret, bound fingerboard and headstock, multiple body binding, inlaid pearloid Gretsch logo on the headstock, silver plexi pickguard, knurled strap retainer knobs and adjustable truss rod. As well as these iconic features, the G6128T-1962 also includes a deluxe hardshell case for safely transporting your beloved instrument between your performances.
