This limited edition instrument comes with a bright red pearloid finish that will surely catch the attention of onlookers, accented by a silver pickguard with the Gretsch Custom Shop 10th Anniversary logo.
For 10 years now, the Gretsch Custom Shop continues to build the brand's high-end instruments, ensuring each one is built to please the increased quality demands of customers in this top-tier market. Some of their popular guitar models include the White Falcon, the Chet Atkins and Brian Setzer signature, and the George Harrison tribute model.
For the 10th anniversary of the Gretsch Custom Shop, Master Builder Stephen Stern and his team went for a really flashy looking Duo Jet that celebrates a decade's worth of top caliber work and legacy. To ensure the instrument's exclusivity, only 10 will be produced for worldwide release.
Underneath the radiant red pearloid maple top, the Custom Shop 10th Anniversary Duo Jet NOS has a chambered mahogany body with white pearloid binding. The neck is also made of mahogany, and is topped by a 12"-radius ebony fretboard with 22 vintage style frets and "Hump-Block" pearloid inlays. Red-dot side markers were used to match the red theme of the guitar, while the same pearloid white binding wraps the neck.
For the pickups, the Custom Shop team went with two Seymour Duncan Dynasonic pickups that are wired to a three-way pickup selector. Gretsch's distinct four "G" arrow knob configuration is present, giving you control over the volume of each pickup, master tone, and master volume.
Other features of the guitar include a Synchro-Sonic bridge with “Cadillac”-style “G”-logo tailpiece, Gotoh open-back tuners, chrome hardware and gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The old-school script “Gretsch” headstock logo completes the guitar's retro-modern appeal.
If you want to own one of these rare red gems, prepare to be set back by around $11,100. Head over to Gretsch Guitars for more information.
