The guitars conceived and produced by the Gretsch Company after WWII represent some of the more unique sounding and visually dynamic models available during the ''50s and into the mid-''60s.

The entire Jet solidbody line evolved to a double-cutaway body in 1961. This specimen illustrates the subsequent 1962 upgrades of gold plated hardware and a Burns vibrato tailpiece. Rocker Malcom Young (AC/DC) is associated with a highly modified example of this model. (Photo courtesy of Ron O'Keefe)
