Comments Based on the 1957 Jet George Harrison bought second-hand in the early 1960′s, this is a wonderful guitar. It’s got a unique sound; DynaSonics don’t really resemble anything else. The rocking bar bridge works very well with the Bigsby and intonation isn’t much of an issue at all. It’s quite easy to get nearly as close as you can with individually adjustable saddles. Overall, a very good instrument, with a classy appearance yet not overdone.
