GRETSCH® TO GIVE AWAY GEORGE HARRISON
SIGNATURE DUO JET™ GUITAR
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Oct. 25, 2011) – Gretsch announces the George Harrison Signature Duo Jet Giveaway. As part of the contest, one lucky winner will receive a G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Duo Jet guitar, along with a copy of George Harrison: Living in the Material World, the companion book to the documentary by Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese.
The sleek black guitar is based on the late-1950s-era Gretsch model that Harrison often referred to as his "first real decent guitar." The book, written by Olivia Harrison and published by Abrams Books, is a handsome 400-page hardcover volume culled from Harrison's personal archive of photos, letters, diaries and memorabilia, and gives an unprecedented and richly detailed look at the entire life of a great musician who touched the lives of millions.
The contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents. For more information and to enter the contest, go to www.gretschguitars.com.
