Imperial Vintage Guitars was asking for help in identifying the woman accused of stealing guitars from the store that specializes in classic instruments. May 21, The owner of Imperial Vintage Guitars was pleading for the public's help on the store's Instagram story after two women were accused of stealing the guitars: a Gibson Johnny Smith, and a Gretsch Firebird.
If, like us, you regularly peruse the Gretsch guitars catalogue you'll be struck by the sheer number of Jet guitars that seem to be available and, although they do have very different names - Silver, Sparkle, Duo, Power and so on - each has its roots way back inwhen the company first issued these smaller so-called solidbodies. We say 'so-called solidbodies' as Jets are in fact semi-solid, and 52 years ago the bodies were manufactured from mahogany with tops demonstrating laminates comprising any mixture of spruce, maple, mahogany and even pine and a plastic material called Nitron, originally used in the manufacture of Gretsch drums. The Jets were originally released to compete with the new Les Paul model that had been unleashed by Gibson less than two years previously, and models such as the Duo Jet with a black finishthe Sparkle Jet with a cool silver sparkle top and the Round-Up featuring the classic Gretsch Western trim certainly caught the eye.
Other services, carriers, and additional insurance are the responsibility and expense of the buyer. Some instruments, especially vintage keyboards, will require regular tuning, calibration and service upon receipt and installation. Routine service should be expected.
