Gretsch pays tribute to an all-time legend with the Custom Shop Tribute G6128T-GH George Harrison Duo Jet Electric Guitar. Order yours from Sam Ash Direct today for the guaranteed lowest price.
The Gretsch G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Duo Jet Semi Hollow Body Electric Guitar is a stunning replica of the guitar played by George Harrison as seen on legendary early footage of the Beatles performing at Liverpool's Cavern Club; where the group played from February 1961 to August 1963. George’s prized instrument of choice was a black 1957 Gretsch 6128 Duo Jet, serial number 21179, with a Bigsby® vibrato unit. The guitar is clearly visible in the footage. After acquiring the guitar in the summer of 1961, Harrison used this guitar almost exclusively during the historic three-year span when the Beatles parlayed their local fame into legendary status. This guitar is heard on the Beatles' debut album, “Please Please Me”, and the song of the same name that was their first number-one hit. After retiring this guitar in 1963, he gave the guitar to his close friend Klaus Voorman, (who is famous for designing the Beatles “Revolver” album cover, and later became the bassist for John Lennon’s Plastic Ono Band). A quarter-century later he re-acquired this legendary guitar and used it for his acclaimed 1987 solo album Cloud Nine; as also seen on the now iconic cover art.
The body is carved from mahogany, and is chambered for improved tonality and weight relief; and is capped with a 3-ply Maple Top. The neck is carved from mahogany with a rosewood fretboard and a comfortable 9” radius. The electronics feature a pair of DynaSonic™ Single-Coil Bridge and Neck Pickups, Custom Made by Seymour Duncan. You will be able to relive these legendary sounds in your own hands. The vintage style tuners and the Bigsby B6C vibrato tailpiece perfectly complete the vibe.
