Gretsch Jet Fire Bird 6131 and Duo Jet 6128

1968 "That Great Gretsch Sound" guitar and amplifier catalog page 27

In the 1960s, Gretsch were far better known for their hollow body guitars, than their solids. Only three solid bodies are included in the entire catalog - down from four in the previous catalog: the Astro Jet was now discontinued. This page details two solid body guitars, the Gretsch Jet Fire Bird 6131 and Duo Jet 6128.

The Gretsch Jet series of solid body electrics are out of this world when it comes to the site and sound that's in. Sleek and modern, they are virtually a study in motion. The colors splash sparkle and flash in a dazzling array of showmanship. Their sound has no equal. Each one is a revelation of electronic perfection with fantastic sustaining power, Prismatic tonal colouring and cosmic highs.

Both guitars were listed (US prices, April 1968) at $375, irrespective of color. Note the offer of additional sparkle finishes at no extra price:

To match your bands color, the Duo Jet is available on special order with Spotlight Sparkle finish top in Silver, Gold, Champagne, Burgundy, Tangerine. All at the standard Duo Jet price.
