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 new G6131T-62 Vintage Select '62 Jet with Bigsby rocks that legacy to perfection.

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 TV Jones Classic pickups that replicate that vintage Filter'Tron sound to fabulous sonic effect.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreNorth Bay, Ontario
I received this guitar in early August having ordered it in early June. I recently changed the rather poorly thought out bridge for an "All Parts" replacement bridge model GB545-002 and now the guitar is where it should have been at the start.The guitar is a bit hefty a little like a Les Paul but has a great feel and a nicely balanced tone tending toward the brighter side which was not unexpected. The problem with the original bridge was that it tended to deaden the sound of some notes for example the A (1st sting open) sang clearly but the A (2nd string 10th fret) was dull by comparison even after experimenting with different strings regardless of weight. Except for the bridge issue which may just be me, I would have given it top marks in every area.
