    GRETSCH JET II G1315 , found this on the local buy/sell. Mint still has plastic wrap on back plates. Not a lot of info on these, pre Fender. Nice little guitar with Gretschbuckers. Fairly bright sounding 20181013_165700_HDR.jpg 20181013_165727_HDR.jpg 20181013_165840_HDR.jpg . Hard to pass up for $150.00

    Minihums, not G'buckers. Nice basic guitar, tho. Great price!

    Nice! I can't say for sure what it would be worth, but $150 seems like a steal of a deal.

    HA! I picked up one of my own last weekend though I had to part with $160. (probably for the Electromatic upgrade:D) I have yet to find a model number for it anywhere. I did find a very detailed thread here on the double cut versions but nothing on these singles. This is a refinish project for me. I'll decide on pickup swaps once I get a new set of strings on it since these might be original to the guitar and certainly not helping the sound.

    I'm confused Slim. These aren't Gretschbuckers??

    Right. I couldn't see the first post clearly---those ARE G'buckers. Post #6 are minihums.

    Spent some time setting it up, and put on some new strings. Gotta say i don't mind the G'buckers. Nice neck on it, not too slim. Plays and sounds great. Definitely got my money's worth.

    Those aren't bad pickups at all, just that people bought a ton of 5120's wanting them to sound like 6120's and they were not. Easy to remedy though.

    I read a lot of bad reviews on G'buckers and figured i'd swap them out. After a couple hours play time i like them and can't see swapping them now. They work on this.
