Gretsch Duo Jet Custom Shop Masterbuilt G-6128CS

$ 5999.00

For your consideration is an absolutely stunning Gretsch Custom Shop Masterbuilt ’62 G6128 Duo Jet in a gorgeous “NOS” Black Holoflake finish! This guitar is dead mint, in as-new condition. The case is in excellent condition.

Gretsch’s solidbody guitars are just as incredible and historic as their revered hollowbody archtops. They provide a more conventional electric guitar experience with the resonance and build quality of the hollowbodies for the best of both worlds. This Duo Jet’s double-cutaway design is extremely comfortable to play and has superior upper-fret access with the body shape.

This one is an absolute stunner, fully decked out in luxurious gold hardware and features a beautiful dark ebony fingerboard that complements the black holoflake body nicely. The “NOS” level of aging to the lacquer is almost like taking a time machine back to 1962 and buying one of these beauties brand-new.

The awesome tone of this guitar pairs beautifully with the looks. TV Jones pickups have become the go-to winders for Filtertron-style pickups in the modern era, and a set of their Classics more than do this amazing guitar justice. These pickups just sound phenomenal – jangly, clear, bright, full, warm – it’s all there. Try them through a vintage-style Fender amp on the edge of breakup, or even an old-school British-style amp at roaring gain levels.

When it’s a masterbuilt instrument, you can expect the best, the cream of the crop. Skilled Gretsch master builder Chad Henrichsen clearly put a ton of love and care into the build process of this guitar!
