Summary
Rare first year single-cut '55 Gretsch Jet Firebird made in Brooklyn, NY. Duo Jet shape, two DeArmond pickups, Mahogany body, black no-logo guard, block inlays, 24 1/2" scale, T-roof logo, ebony finish back and sides. Excellent overall condition, fitted Bigsby and repro ABR bridge (original 'G' tailpiece and Melita bridge retained and in full working order.) Master tone and two individual volume controls as well as a master volume switch on the lower horn. Original thin frets with plenty of height left, comfortable D neck profile, this guitar plays very well and has that classic Gretsch DeArmond tone. Complete with slightly later 'salt & pepper' hard shell case and Gretsch strap.
