The Duovette

I decided to name the guitar ‘Duovette’ as it is loosely based on three Gretsch guitars: – body size, scale length, pickup layout as per Duojet 6128, while body shape and F holes are as per a Corvette 6187 and the head stock shape as per a Corvette 6132.

Specifications: Grover Locking tuners, TV Jones Classic pickups, puriri fretboard, paua inlays, kohekohe sides and neck, mahogany back, norfolk pine top, rewarewa headstock veneer and ebony bindings.

The ‘Duovette’ name still needs to be properly etched into the truss rod cover.
