From Gretsch:

"Inspired by the pivotal and prolific years of Gretsch’s 1950s and early ’60s golden age, Vintage Select Edition guitars are designed for the player who appreciates the finest in musical instrument heritage. The G6128T-53 Vintage Select ’53 Duo Jet™ with Bigsby® rocks that legacy with a finely crafted new take on one of Gretsch’s first and dearest models.

The Duo Jet debuted in 1953 as Gretsch’s flagship “solid body” guitar, although its signature power and punch came from its chambered mahogany design, 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 original-era beauty, along with special touches including the rare Gretsch “script” headstock logo and dual TV Jones® T-Armond™ pickups that keenly replicate the vintage DynaSonic™ sound."

Black, Gloss Urethane finish, Arched laminated Maple top on a chambered Mahogany body, Standard U shaped Mahogany neck, Bound 12" radius Rosewood fingerboard with the aged pearloid block inlays and medium jumbo frets, 24.6" scale length, 1.6875" nut width, TV Jones T-Armond bridge and neck pickups, 3-way toggle switching with the master volume and tone controls plus a volume control for each pickup, Aluminum compensated bridge on a pinned Rosewood base, Bigsby B3CCB vibrato, Grover Sta-Tite tuners, With hardshell case
