It’s in great condition, with light wear and one small ding in the headstock. The pickup covers and rocking bar bridge are showing some light oxidization, which make the guitar look vintage.

Gretsch ’59 Silver Jet G6129T-59 Silver Sparkle

Gretsch '59 Silver Jet G6129T-59 Silver Sparkle

The Gretsch ’59 Silver Jet is a very cool guitar, with all the late-50’s trappings – Bigsby, TV Jones Classic Filter’Tron based pickups, and a standout silver sparkle finish! The Gretsch Jet is an under-rated guitar, but has appeared on many hit recordings. Chet Atkins used one on many classic recordings, and the first few Beatles albums feature George Harrison with his Jet.

❌ SOLD ❌ Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS Sunburst Thinline Archtop Guitar, 1983

❌ SOLD ❌ Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS Sunburst Thinline Archtop Guitar, 1983

In the 1980s, the great Jazz guitarist George Benson entered into a collaboration with Ibanez to produce a series of signature archtop electric guitars, including the Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS and its fancier sisters. These guitars were immediately popular with other jazz players, because the design addresses real needs. The body is comfortably compact, and while its hollow, F-hole body design provides real archtop resonance, responsiveness and ‘thump’, the solid spruce top is carved to dramatically reduce feedback at performance volumes.

❗️SALE❗️ Gretsch G6112TCB-WF Limited Edition Falcon Jr. White, 2016

This Gretsch G6112TCB-WF Limited Edition Falcon Jr. in Vintage White, is a great little guitar and is a new model. Blending influences from three sources – the classic Gretsch White Falcon, the Jet body design, and the new Gretsch Players models. Aside from being very flashy, this is a great playing and sounding guitar.
Every once in a while, something built as a promotional item for an industry trade show really takes off, gets more intention than expected and is put into production. This was the case with the 1954 Gretsch White Falcon, intended to show off the elegance and quality of the Gretsch electric archtop line at the 1954 NAMM trade show in California.
