This signature Gretsch's body has been constructed to embody all the 1950s goodness that made George Harrison's original Duo Jet so wonderful. Showcasing a semi-hollowed build with mid-50s style sound chambers, it radiates aesthetic gorgeousness as well as stunning, sonic beauty. With resonance and glorious overtones, this vintage design exudes a full-bodied tone, making for a truly exquisite performance. A careful balance of brightness and warmth emanates from the maple and mahogany combination whilst glistening clarity ensures every note rings out beautifully.
Providing elegant embellishments of this exquisite guitar are stylish pieces of hardware that give it a '50s aesthetic. They are also brilliantly practical too and offer a comfortable playing experience. Grover Sta-Tite tuners deliver quick and easy tuning as well as superb string stability. A bone nut then enhances the resonance that flows from the strings to give you a truly immersive sound. George Harrison was an incredibly influential guitarist, not least because he was in one of the most successful bands in the world. And now with this signature model, designed to be an honest replica, you can experience such a classic, iconic tone in all its glory.
Displaying pure excellence, a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard are designed for fearless, passionate fretting. The silky-smooth neck allows for seamless sliding as it sits comfortably in your hand, its mahogany construction then emphasises midrange frequencies for a beautifully balanced, warm tone. And it grants you a lifetime of exquisite playing too as it grows more tonally focused each time you play. Emitting sparkling brightness and a sea of complex resonance, rosewood's rich sonic capabilities are even across the whole frequency range and are nothing short of magnificent. Its luscious finish accommodates fast and skilful fretting techniques, so you can be sure that everything you play will be seamless.
The George Harrison Duo Jet harnesses a pair of DynaSonic pickups. They encompass the same design as the original '50s DynaSonic single-coils, allowing you to explore the wonders of the tone that carried the Beatles and their everlasting legacy. These pickups exude resonance and definition and are perfect for rockabilly sounds, old school rhythms, and blues licks thanks to their Alnico 5 build and individually adjustable pole pieces. Go from the crisp rock twang of the bridge to the smooth, jazzy tones of the neck. You will be engrossed in an exceptional sound.
Accompanying the pickups are Gretsch's G-Shield control knobs. They have been relied on for many of Gretsch's old guitars, so you know you'll have a design full of heritage. Their knurled edges are easy to grip and enable you to adjust your tone without any disruption to your music. Sculpt your sound until it is immaculate, you will be instantly recognisable.
...when you're armed with the iconic Bigsby B3C vibrato tailpiece. It is the ultimate tremolo system for adding tone-enhancing shimmers to your chords, glorious pitch bends, and full-bodied textures with even movement across the strings. Featuring a black Philips head screw, the tailpiece replicates every last detail of the one featured on George Harrison's guitar. The "rocking" bar bridge then adds plenty of sustain and a classic vintage sound.
