 Gretsch Custom Shop Masterbuilt Stephen Stern G6128CS 1959 Duo Jet Closet Classic Champagne Sparkle With Case

 IMPECCABLE CRAFTSMANSHIP
The Gretsch Custom Shop is where the time-honored legacy reaches its creative apex. No instruments epitomize the extraordinary expertise and attention to detail of Gretsch’s most trusted hands like Custom Shop instruments. From modern versions of legendary Gretsch instruments to artist tribute models and specially requested one-off guitars, the Gretsch Custom Shop takes “That Great Gretsch Sound” to an entirely new plane, but also preserves and perfects it. 

 

Truetone Music is proud to have a long and close relationship with Gretsch, especially with the Custom Shop.  Every year, we make a pilgrimage there to sit down with Masterbuilder Stephen Stern and his team to cook up a batch of Custom Shop guitars.  Sometimes we go for vintage-styled recreations, sometimes we go for modernized tweaks.  Sometimes it's a classic color, sometimes it's a totally new color or even reclaimed wood.  Either way, they always knock it out of the park!

This G6128CS 1959 Duo Jet is a a result of this partnership.  A reinvisioned recreation of the Duo Jet, it has the classic Gretsch sound and feel, but with a Champagne Sparkle Drum Top.  It's truly a stunning guitar, and one you won't see anywhere else - because it's the only one ever built!  We chose this look at the suggestion of Masterbuilder Stephen Stern, and are thrilled with the outcome.  He absolutely nailed it, as he always does.
This is a unique take a classic guitar, ready for the stage or studio.  Come to Truetone Music to experience it in person, or make it yours right here.
