|The Differences In The Stock Duo
Jet & The Harrison Are Structural & Cosmetic.
1, The body is 2 inches deep the standard has been 1 ¾ for a very long time.
2. The chambering of the body is different, it has more area removed so even though it’s slightly deeper body the weight is the same or less than the standard.
3 The guitar is all black. George had a repaint done in 1963 the Beatle Gear book by Andy Babiuk details the time when the band finally got a vacation. John & George both had their guitars painted.
4 The bridge is a rocking bar on the signature model and the standard has a later model bridge.
5 The case is a premium tweed case that is not available on the standard.

That Great Gretsch Sound
The quality of the new Gretsch guitars are excellent. In
fact I am impressed with the workmanship and finishes. The playability exceeds
many of the old originals and the tone is unmistakably Gretsch.

holding is now available from Ed Roman by exclusive agreement from
The normal one that is available everywhere else is Brown. It doesn't look as nice as this one in Jet Black
This guitar was originally issued in 2004, There were only
20 made and they did not have the mutes. The new model does have the mutes.
