NAMM: Rare Gretsch Guitar Re-issued
OK, It May Look Black In This Photo But It Really Is Cadillac Green

Gretsch have brought back one of the rarest of their vintage models - the G6128TCG Duo Jet in Cadillac Green. Designed for Gretsch players, collectors and vintage aficionados, the new G6128TCG is an accurate reproduction of the extremely rare 1957 Gretsch 6128T with Synchro-Sonic bridge, Cadillac Green Top, and gold hardware, and this is the first time ever that Gretsch has offered this model as a reissue. Mike Lewis, Marketing Manager for Gretsch, says of the new model, "Only a handful of these guitars were ever made in this color and with these features, and for Gretsch fans and collectors, finding an original 1957 6128T has been the equivalent of winning the lottery. Without taking any value away from these rare originals, we thought it was high time to offer an accurate reproduction for the Gretsch fans who have been asking us years to make a re-issue of this model." The single cutaway, semi-hollow G6128TCG electric guitar features a heavily chambered mahogany body with arched laminated maple top, one-piece mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard with vintage hump block position markers, and aged binding.
