To date, I've been lukewarm towards Jets. The handful I've encountered just haven't been amazing, the way some Gretsches can be. Playability only average; tones lackluster. Pretty, sometimes, but nothing that got under my skin.
So it really makes no sense that I became obsessed with this one:
And today, after a genuinely harrowing week trying to figure out whether or not FedEx lost the package, it finally landed. And it's great!
So color me converted. I can only assume that Tara's indefatigable proselytizing has a deep subliminal influence on all of us. No one is safe; consider yourselves warned!

That's a nice one. I hope a Jet with Dynas is in my future.

If/when I buy another Gretsch, it'll be the CG Jet. Tara is right.

Resistance is futile! Jets rule!

I am also a recent Jet convert. Though I had never even laid hands on one until my buddy handed me the one I bought. My Sparkle Jet is one of the finest instruments I've ever played.
Congrats! A Dyna equipped Jet will someday be in the stable for me as well!

Beautiful Jet... I'm trying to control the Jet Gas and this does not help 8)
April 4th, 2012, 05:09 PM
Wow, that's a gorgeous piece of Jet there Beepster!
Hope it suppresses your gas for a while at least. And let's never underestimate the power of The Tara.
Here's to much enjoyment!!

Where is Tara anyway?
April 4th, 2012, 08:29 PM
Probably off luring some unsuspecting guitarist into a life of jettocity.

I played one just like this the other day and promised myself I'd one day own one in the same Caddy green. Congratulations!
