Description

USED (MINT CONDITION) - This is the one of the coolest guitars to come out in the past 10 years! Meticulously recreated by Gretsch master builder Stephen Stern and his crew, the Gretsch George Harrison Tribute Duo Jet, recreates George's original Gretsch Duo Jet with unparalleled accuracy. Every single detail of this guitar is identical to Harrison's original Duo Jet, down to every scratch, dent, and tarnished piece of hardware! Only 60 Harrison Tribute guitars were produced worldwide. We sold this guitar to its original owner back in 2011, the owner of this guitar was a private collector who mostly kept it in its case. This guitar is in mint, collector quality condition. The original shipping box, and all original contents is also included.
