GAK Music Demos a Gretsch G6128T Duo Jet


Gretsch GAK Music

Gretsch/Fender Product Education Specialist Damon Chivers recently hooked up with a representative from GAK Music in the U.K. to run through a G6128T Duo Jet with Bigsby and a G6128T-GH George Harrison signature Duo Jet.

The demo was truly informative, as each guitar has its share of sonic differences, namely in the Filter’Tron pickups in the G6128T Duo Jet as compared to the single-coil DynaSonic pickups in the Harrison model.

“We always say, ‘That great Gretsch sound,’ but it’s absolutely true,” said Chivers. “There is nothing else that sounds like them. Whether it’s the classic rockabilly, the Chet [Atkins] thing, or the Beatles, or whatever, it’s an all-around great-sounding guitar.”
