The Duo-Jet stands as one of Gretsch's most iconic guitars and certainly its most iconic solidbody. This chambered solidbody is most closely associated with George Harrison who played one in the early Beatles era and throughout his whole career. While not as collectable as their Gibson or Fender counterparts, vintage Duo-Jets are amongst the most prized Gretsch solidbody guitars.
