1956 GretschSparkle Jet – Silver

This is a show stopping, original 1956 Gretsch 6129 Sparkle Jet in Silver Sparkle! Gretsch’s past experience with drums was ever present in this model, as the tops on these Sparkle Jets were actually drum casing rather than paint! This guitar is equipped with two fantastic Dynasonic DeArmand pickups that give it a warm tone. and the neck is smooth and fills the palm nicely, with frets in good shape. Even acoustically, the guitar resonates and amped up, it really sings!
