Gretsch G6128T-GH George Harrison Duo | Jet Black

The Gretsch G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Duo Jet is based on the George Harrison's first 'decent guitar' which he bought second hand in the early 1960s. The mahogany body is chambered to help this Duo Jet on its way to the classic semi-hollow Gretsch sound. The fundamental fullbodied rounded tone of the mahogany is given sparkle and air by the maple top: a classic combination for beautiful refined tone that's perfect for a huge range of styles.

The single coil DynaSonic pickups pick up from there with awesome vintage tone that screams 60s and yet at the same time have the same dynamic sensetivity you would expect of a modern pickup

Styling is also vintage although its also nicely understated, reliving the simple look of Harrison's original jet. The quality hardware includes a true Bigsby-Gretsch trem with a black 'Phillips head' tremolo arm.

Bigsby Tremolo

The Bigsby is one of the smoothest tremolo systems ever made and has been used by countless artists to create subtle movement in chords and sweet bends. Nothing quite feels like Bigsby tremolo due to the single large spring that creates the movement evenly across all of the strings. If you have loved the sounds of pop and rock throughout the 50's and 60's chances are you have heard plenty of Bigsby playing.

Chambered Build

This guitar is built very closely to the same design as the 1955 original. The body has been crafted out of Mahogany with chambering to keep the weight down and add this woods, resonant tone in the midrange that is similar to what you get out of semi hollow guitars.

The neck is like the body made out of Mahogany and has been carved to the usual Gretsch specs of a 24.6" scale length with an Ebony 12" radius fretboard for smooth playing action to suit all players.

Body Shape

The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well balanced, compact, and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you’re a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch. The graduated top works in harmony with the Breedlove Bridge Truss to provide an even response throughout the lows, mids, and highs, with sustain, and clear, concise, note-for-note projection.

Breedlove Bridge Truss

The Breedlove Bridge Truss (BBT) reduces tension on the soundboard of the guitar, so the top wood is able to vibrate more freely, producing remarkable sustain, balance, and clarity. The BBT also allows for a thinner graduated top, thereby allowing Breedlove craftsmen to bring out the optimal sound from the top wood without sacrificing structural stability. Relieving much of the string tension from the bridge prevents “bridge belly,” ensuring top stability for decades. Guitar strings can exert up to 230 pounds of pull from the nut to the bridge. Traditional methods for preventing top bowing at the bridge usually involve heavy internal bracing and thicker tops. The BBT compensates for this pressure in an innovative way: The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the guitar, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge to distribute some of the tension, relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT-equipped guitars is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones.

Breedlove Neck

Breedlove guitars feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.

Breedlove Pinless Bridge

The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge also provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you’ll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.

Top Wood

Genuine mahogany, swietenia macrophylla, can be found from Mexico to southern Amazonia in Brazil. Mahogany is a medium-lightweight wood, ranging in color from light brown to dark, and is primarily used for necks because of the feel and the stability it provides. It offers a balanced, resonant tone with notable sustain – a thick bottom end, rich midrange, and controlled, warm top end finish out the sound. The coloration is a reddish brown.

ESP LTD B-204SM Bass Guitar | See-Thru Black Satin

Totally love this bass,I play in a rock covers band and a hardcore punk band and the tone from this guitar is perfect, the E.Q. lets me cut the mids and raises the high and low ends for a real raw sound like bill goulds except this thing is only £400 odd quid compared with £2500 + for a Zon. Build quality is excellent as Is value for money,Delivery was rapid as usual from Rimmers and I'd recommend using them again. Now for the only downside I found with the bass, the neck is mega thin so it's really easy to accidentally pull the G string off the edge of the neck and mines had a rattle on the first fret of the A string which I reckon is due to the nut being just a tad too low. the action is mega low but no other rattles anywhere except on that one fret. For the money you just can't go wrong, out of about 7 basses I own my band mates always say nothing sounds as good as both my ESP LTD basses especially if you play with a more treble- over driven tone. Would have given it 4.5 due to the fret rattle but it's better than just good.Buy one!
