The Money Shot: Gretsch Custom Shop ’56 G6128 Duo Jet Relic
Every encounter that we’ve had with one of Stephen Stern’s Gretsch Custom Shop creations has been a truly breathtaking experience, and this instrument is no exception.
Available from Guitar Village in Farnham, this Duo Jet Relic is modelled closely on a vintage original, but is an arguably more stable and playable proposition than many 1950s Jets we’ve strapped on.
Don’t be intimidated by the fixed-arm Bigsby either: there’s an optional swivel arm in the case. The price of admission? At £3,810 it’s a serious investment, but not as big a step up from production line prices as you might expect.
