Gretsch G6128T-1957 Duo Jet w/Bigsby
Made in Japan. I think this makes 30 years that are no longer manufactured gretsch to USD.
22 frets, 2 single coil pickups Dynasonic _ a 3-position selector (a single tone for 2, against three volumes: one for each + 1 general) Bigsby Vibrato small amplitude because of the pickguard but even by pulling it into the tuning without worries.
Mahogany neck, not too large, rather round ... a real pleasure for all who try.
Guitar hollow, lightweight, flawless finish ', happiness and personality


I have small hands but I have no concerns with the handle. on the other hand, if you want to play above the 20th fret on the low strings, a little yoga session is required.

Sounds: Compared with guitars "standard" attack made the difference. It responds immediately, slamming it's pretty, pretty "percussive" without disturbing frequency.
1) Neck pickup is superb, the volume level is very strong - I do not say that it is a guarantee of quality - but it has a lot of micro serious, the higher up the boxes more he sings. Arpeggios sound is defined as I never have noticed on another guitar. In rock'n'roll rock according to Manu Chao and Mano Solo ... there's no better: it's round, full, never boiled. You play Jazz? Round is a serious and cons to ultra précis.Par rhythmic metal that does not, it's hollow it distorts it.
2) Bridge pickup: I do not ever used. It has very high medium not fun, then of course, it distorts more than the other but for that I prefer any other of my guitars! The walkthrough: I sent an email to TV and just released most of their microphones Dynasonic format. Personally I chose the fattest
"The Powertron Plus" and look the arrival of my order format called "Dynatron"
3) split is even more slamming but it lacks body. If you are bars Funk you have fun.
I put a mixed note: 10/10 for the stick and 3 / 10 to the bridge => 7 / 10


No! I play heavy blues rock with a tendency to begin with. But since I have a Gretsch I venture into other areas which is nice. As I said I ordered a pickup more suited to my style.
I play on Marshall but also from home VOX Valvetronix (amp emulation). Those who have tried this series from 50 watts know this amp has amazing versatility and following the guitar is used, it will never play the same amp emulation. I have a custom lag (DiMarzio Tone Zone and PAF Pro) a Blade (Sounds typed Start + piezo) and some gear that I will not. But the gretsch is the exception and that we love you jealous for all its differences


1 year, it's been almost a year since I dropped my other beads for the Gretsch. I am a junk I admit but what do you: When you have a soul full of noble character who knows the dog banter, growl, howl, which is disorder that takes you where it wants, you poor little musician you want more
The pros: light weight, the look, finish and the difference
the -: bridge pickup
J'l'avais not even tried! it was an auction for new states and I got it to 60% reduction (véridique! good it took me to pay customs fees upon receipt € 210! it made me € 1190 to the total, but do I seem to regret it?)
quality / price: € 2500 y'en unacceptable living well! As they come out against in the Gretsch Electromatic hollowbody to € 700 while there I said, "put your mouse and will try it if you do not fear" that should be cool and twaaaangy after you sleep worse and worse.
you do again this choice? ... Yeah

Gretsch G6128T-1957 Duo Jet w/Bigsby
Made in Japan the granny, 22 frets I think, equipped with a Bigsby, TDS is the version with the aging bindin and the bridge so circular block.
The inlay on the inside of the button are nice, the key is in "Rosewood". It's the simple version with the microphones, the Dyna-Tron ...
A volume control for each pickup, one tone and one master volume (very useful to keep the balance between micro bridge and neck pickup in middle position)


The handle is a treat, not too big, thinner than a Gibson, a real pleasure to play it ... The Bigsby is excellent ...
Access to acute Start is not worse than a little difficult but possible.
The guitar is light, a delight to play, plug the sound is huge ... It sounds naturally rockabilly, but it's versatile, Jazz, Rock and bourrinage agreed work very well ... It is a pleasure to play on the guitar sounds right and the quality of the violin is huge ...
... The Dyna-Sonic pickups have great definition. Some complain of nasal bridge micro ... It's my favorite ...
Be careful, however, on what amp you plug it ... on a Fender Blues Junior, in fact, the micro Bridge nasal (like this amp for that matter), for against, connected to a Marshall Bluesbreaker, micro Bridge leaves out of beautiful harmonics and superb definition, a much richer and better defined strat ... Foot ...
I do not even talk about the intermediate position and the position of grave (Grave is excellent for blues solos) ...
At ergonomics, this guitar is versatile on Anniversary, it was difficult to make Bends on the Duo-Jet, no problemo ..


Guitar ideal for all types of music except extreme Trash and taping of the Sick ... But be careful with the G string that goes with the use of the Bigsby ...
Poilyvalents sounds are warm and rich ... instead of crystalline type, in fact ...
Guitar overdrive but tolerates the least distortion, prefer an overdrive with a little crunch and it comes direct from Neil Young ...


The Pied ...
Light, sounds right, superb sound, sounds rich and different ...
I tried the Anniversary, a Country Gentlemen ...
I bought it with his eyes closed to direct States ... But hey,
The value for money is unacceptable to France, buy these instruments directly to the USA ... Possible to nab one for under 2000 euros, for the price of a new Start, in comparison, there is no photo The Gretsch is operating in a different category ... the Gretsch Cadillac falls into the category and the category Start Méhari ... (Warning, I love strats, but they are worlds) ...
I do it again this choice in a heartbeat ...
