Gretsch 6128 Duo Jet – U.S.A. – 1953


Electric Solid Body Single cutaway guitar


Mahogany body and neck, maple top

Ebony fretboard

Two DeArmond Single Coil pickups (Filter’Trons in 1958)


The Duo Jet was not technically a solid body, as it consisted of several pieces of mahogany with tunnels for cables and space for electronic components. A thin layer was glued to the curved top. In the earliest models this cover is covered with a shiny black plastic layer.
