The Electromatic Jet is at the heart of the Gretsch range. Embodying their vintage aesthetics, colourful sound and unique playability, they perform far beyond their price point - and this year's additions are no exception!
Gretsch have opted for understated aesthetics for the Jet BT, with a distinctly retro twang. Soft curves, sharp chrome hardware and their iconic logo all paint a unique picture that's undeniably Gretsch.
A chambered mahogany body & mahogany neck combination provides a balanced, clear sound that'll resonate with brilliant warmth, and the black walnut fingerboard will give you ultra-smooth playability.
The stylish 'V' stoptail tailpiece provides sturdy tuning stability and classy looks in equal measure. This guitar is also dual-loaded with Black Top Broad’Tron pickups, delivering a responsive but crispy vintage tone that'll cut through any mix. Don't afraid to whack it - it'll respond in kind!
The G5220 Electromatic Jet BT is available in three finishes: dark cherry metallic, black, and casino gold.
Here's what Gretsch say about the Gretsch G5220 Electromatic Jet BT:
