    Looks like a FMI era guitar in decent condition. The price is great, imho.

    Looks good. 2006, Terada made. Okay condition. Give it a play and if you like it, you can feel good about buying it.

    I am currently looking at the G6128t. I like the 89VS. The different models have some little nuances. I am not a fan of the roller bridge. I would want a Nashville bridge. That is an easy fix. Yours is wired up with a mud switch, rather than a tone knob. I prefer the 4 knob. But that is not a deal breaker.

    I would have to hold it, and get eyes on it. If you can get the serial number for it, you could find out a little more info on it, like the year made. Likely needs pots and wiring. May need frets. So it may need work to be a daily player. Go look at it and see how it plays, and find out what work has been done to it and what it needs. I have bought guitars before that need work and took money off the offer to cover that.

    It is definitely worth looking at. But don't buy it sight unseen. If it needs frets and electronics, you could be ahead buy buying a new one.

    It will feel different for sure. It is not a 'big' guitar like a hollowbody. It has a body profile like a Les Paul so it will be narrower at the bout and not nearly so deep. It will also probably be nearly a pound lighter than the Anni.

    Soundwise, both guitars have Filtertrons so they will be in the same ballpark but it'll feel like you're playing two different guitars.

    Buy it, try it and sell it again if you don’t like it. You should not lose any money. It’s a great price in Belgium.

    I have a 2005 G6121W. But my guitar has Dynasonics and western designs. I don't think this guitar should have cost more than the Duo Jet you were looking at. It's getting close to a new price, I think. It'll be a nice guitar, just pricey (in my opinion) for a used guitar.

    My 6121 is my favourite Gretsch. Very light at 6.8 lbs and it plays and feels great.

    Looks great. Maybe a bit pricey, but probably quite rare in Belgium. If you want a 6121 it’s probably worth it, but if you’re just looking for a Jet there are better deals.

    yeah i really like the looks which are a huge plus. I know its pricey but the only one for sale is on reverb wich is 2600 … A jet is quite rare here so dont really want to miss this one.
