Premier Guitar‘s October issue features a two-page spread of the Gretsch G6128T George Harrison Signature Duo Jet guitar in all its splendor.
The model, based on George Harrison’s 1957 Duo Jet, receives praise by the magazine, which says it’s not only beautiful, but also comfortable to play.
“The finish is blemish free and beautiful,” said Premier Guitar. “The medium-thickness, slightly C-profiled neck is comfy, the frets are well dressed, and all the hardware twists, turns, and flicks with a solid, reassuring feel.”
They also made an online video review, which you can watch below.
