    Has anyone seen a picture of, or remember seeing, the Zombies with a Duo Jet? a friend of mine has a guitar he got from his dad who owned a music store back in the 60's. apparently the dad called my friend one day and said there was a band in the shop called the "Grave Diggers", and he should come to the shop if he wanted to meet them. my friend had never heard of them so he didn't bother. later, his dad said he had gotten the name wrong it was the "Zombies", and they traded a gretsch.

    I hope to post some photos soon. apparently it was an anniversary model made in the 50s?!? does this sound right?

    he said it is green, but the colors are reversed. I am not sure what that means. interesting.

  3. no problem, Matt. my old Annie is the guitar that I learned to play on. I've had it since 1966.

    is that first one is the right guitar ? that picture doesn't show the correct shade of green. but they were either green or tobacco sunburst.

    Ok... Im confused. So why were you asking about a Duo Jet, if the guitar in question is an Anniversary?

    I haven't seen his guitar. when I showed him a picture of my Duo Jet, he said it looked a lot like his. It may be that he was confused, or not looking in much detail. Once I get the photos, we'll get a better idea. sorry for the false alarm.

    Now you've gone & done it - you've planted the seed, now Darin is gonna read this, and using his über photochopping skillz he'll bang up a proto-image, and then all 3 of us will be left drooling & dreaming of one even more.. I'm still GASsing from his last batch of proto-jets - http://www.gretsch-talk.com/forum/members/crooner-albums-my-new-duo-jet-line-s.html

    you've opened pandora's box, my friend.. and there ain't no closing it :p
