Inspired by the pivotal and prolific years of Gretsch's 1950s and early '60s golden age, the exclusive G6129T-62-LTD Sparkle Jet in Champagne Sparkle is designed for the player who appreciates the finest in musical instrument heritage.

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 magnificent tone machine, along with TV Jones Ray Butts Ful-Fidelity pickups that replicate that vintage Filter'Tron sound to fabulous sonic effect and a versatile control layout featuring master volume, neck volume, bridge volume, standby switch and 3-position tone toggle switch. Stunning in style, the '62 Sparkle Jet also features aged white body binding with B/W/B purfling, aged pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays, gold pickguard and gold hardware including G-arrow knobs, Grover Stat-Tite tuners, Space Control bridge with ebony base and Bigsby B3G tailpiece.
