Vintage Guitar Details the History of the Gretsch Duo Jet

Posted:

Vintage Guitar’s February 2011 issue includes a spread on the birth of the Gretsch Duo Jet™.

The magazine rewinds to 1953 to share a detailed history of the first Gretsch Electromatic Solid Body Guitar, aka the model 6128 Duo Jet. The article explains what sets apart the very first 150 guitar run (with serial numbers 11900 through 12049) from later models, including the scripty Jet Gretsch logo, and on some 1953 models, a Gretsch drum badge affixed to their lower bout.

Pick up the issue and flip to page 32 to read the full article.
