Gretsch ® (used, 1960) 6128 Duo Jet Electric Solidbody

Tag No 32-4317 Used

#34015, in Black,“excellent minus” condition, all original with the original hard shell case.

Everything looks best in black and white!  This 6128 Duo Jet dates back to the earliest days of rock music.  It has a black top with contrasting white engraved pickguard, mahogany back and sides and chrome metal parts.  This guitar also has the first-in-’58 heel dowel on the back near the neck-body joint securing the neck joist.  The ebony neo-classic fingerboard has eight thumb print inlays, electronics configuration with a three-position tone-elector switch next to the pickup selector, space control roller bridge, Pat. Applied for FilterTron pickups, and white “Gretsch” engraved pickguard.

Let’s talk about the condition:   On the back there is some belt buckle rash, along with overall dings, scrapes, and scratches.  The top shows very light signs of play wear including some scuffs, a ding in the finish on the bottom of the top where the black meets the binding along with some light finish checking.  One of the screws in the pickguard shows some cracks along with additional cracking in the rings that surround the pickups.  The back of the neck shows a few dings – but is overall relatively clean.  The original strap button was removed and replaced in a position closer to the neck, which left a vacant hole adjacent to the current strap button.   Our repair shop will fill the newer hole and move the strap pin back to the original location.  In addition, they will also  perform a world class fret dress along with a setup and restring.  

  We here at Mandolin Brothers see a lot of old Gretsch guitars and rarely does one come in that looks and sounds as incredible as this one.  Interested?  Give us a holler  (718) 981-3226.
