This Gretsch 1958 Duo Jet G6131T Guitar is Owned by Justin Hayward of The Moody Blues.

The early 1960s saw the double-cut Jet get a black back, a zero-fret and gold hardware. As previously, its signature power and punch came from chambered mahogany construction, which magnifies harmonic richness by letting air resonate between the top and body for livelier and more articulate tone. That’s all here on this fiery tone machine, along with that vintage Filter’Tron™ sound to fabulous sonic effect.

SN: 29232. It played on every Moody Blues album from the late 1960's through the 1970's including Blue Jays and solo as well as the Octave album. Whenever I needed a clean electric sound this was my 'go to' guitar. It was one of Mike Pinder's favorite guitar sounds and it played it on a lot of his songs. It has a great, classic Gretsch sound, with so many different combinations of switchable pick ups and tones.

From Justin Hayward's personal collection. Guitar came to us in non functioning condition. It has since been completely reworked by the techs at Chicago Music Exchange. Majority of the Patina has been cleaned up. Guitar has been setup. Complete with an active preamp which will sometimes require a new battery. The guts of this guitar (from years of sweat and use) will sometimes require some routine cleaning on the contacts. The CME techs did a once over freshening up of all of the contacts and pots -- but don't be freaked out when this doesn't function in the preamp position once you get it -- will just require some deoxit and some wiggling of the switches.

Knobs are silent and tone is gritty and awesome. Binding shows evidence of rot around the guitar. It's missing in some pieces (see photos).

Marks and play wear. Some killer player grade vintage with an excellent story from Justin of The Moody Blues.
