Gretsch Duo Jet Wins Guitar World‘s Platinum Award

Posted:

G6128T-1962 Duo Jet

Guitar World has bestowed its Platinum Award upon the Gretsch G6128t-1962 Duo Jet.

“Its unique-sounding DeArmond Dynasonic pickups offered the raucous twang needed for rockabilly and just enough jangle for rock, making it the choice of guitarists like George Harrison and, in his early-90s rockabilly phase, Jeff Beck,” writes GW‘s Paul Riario. “Over the years, the Duo Jet has evolved into many different models, including a double-cutaway version, introduced in 1961, frequently used by AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young. The new Gretsch G6128T-1962 Duo Jet is an inspired reworking of that version, complete with modern updates, vintage cool looks and authoritative tones that will help set you apart from the rest.”

The Duo Jet appears in the November issue of Guitar World, and includes a full breakdown of this instrument’s feature set and a review of its performance.

“The stylish G6128T-1962 Duo Jet is pure magnetic charm, with enough raw tones to make it perfect for aggressive rock or rockabilly twang,” sums up Riario.

Guitar World Interviews Joe Robinson

Gretsch artist Joe Robinson was interviewed in the September issue of Guitar World magazine, where he appears sporting his beloved G6122-1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman.

The 21-year-old Aussie prodigy tells the magazine that music-making has been in his family, but that he really picked up his chops via YouTube by listening to a variety of artists.

“Anything that caught my ear – Steely Dan, Eric Clapton, James Taylor, Mark Knopfler – I’d get on the computer and figure it out,” Robinson tells Guitar World. “I was voracious, and I still am.”
