This rare example of a 1957 Jet (serial number 25545) has all the characteristics of the fi rst Cadillac-green batch, including standard 6128 Duo Jet labels and August 1957 potentiometer codes.Photo courtesy of Billy Straus Firebirds and Cadillacs In the 1955 model year, Gretsch designers expanded the Jet solidbody options again with the introduction of the Jet Firebird model 6131.Upon this third finish option’s inclusion in the Jet solidbody lineup, all subsequent Jet batches included all three models (6128, 6129, and 6131).These guitars would represent the Jet solidbody offering until sometime in late 1957, when Gretsch introduced two special limited-run mini batches with a new finish and a different hardware package.SPG currently builds the higher-end Gretsch Electromatic models.

So this Silver Jet, plausibly the first of its 6129 kind, might simultaneously be the last of its kind relative to the script-logo headstock.
The Cadillac-green fi nish on certain 1957 Jets had previously only been available on Gretsch Country Club 6196 models, while the armrest also appeared on White Penguin 6134 models that were produced immediately after the batch this specimen came from.
