The double cutaway version of the Jet Firebird swapped the Bigsby vibrato for a Burns unit, and added a standby switch to the controls. The double-cutaway model would remain consistent until 1968 when the pickups were upgraded to Gretsch's Super'Tron humbucker.

The Jet Firebird was produced alongside the Silver Jet and Duo Jet models, and feature identical specifications aside from color.
