Gretsch ’59 Silver Jet G6129T-59 Silver Sparkle

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , , ,

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.

This is a new guitar, sold with case and full warranties.

Here’s the builder’s words about the Gretsch ’59 Silver Jet:

“Inspired by the pivotal and prolific years of Gretsch’s 1950s and early ’60s golden age, Vintage Select Edition guitars are designed for player who appreciate the finest in musical instrument heritage. The new G6129T-59 Vintage Select ’59 Silver Jet™ with Bigsby® pays sparkling homage to that great legacy.

The Silver Jet is the time-honored silver-sparkle version of the Gretsch flagship Duo Jet, with signature power and punch coming from its chambered mahogany construction, which magnifies harmonic richness by letting air resonate between the top and body for livelier and more articulate tone. Filter’Tron™ pickups first appeared on the Jet in 1959, and the dual TV Jones® Classic™ pickups on this glittering and futuristic ‘50s era beauty reproduce the unmistakable vintage Filter’Tron sound with sterling tonal accuracy.”
