Gretsch are renowned for their classy vintage-style instruments, boasting unique tones and smooth aesthetics. The G5230T Electromatic Jet encompasses all of Gretsch's signature traits, but modernised to suit today's players looking for something more versatile and functional.
Body & Neck
The Jet has always been a guitar made predominantly from mahogany, and the G5230T is no exception. One classy refinement to this model, however, is its chambered body. This not only lessens the weight of the instrument, but also aids resonance for great sustain.
Its mahogany neck provides a good weight balance and ensures stability - it's also less inclined to warp in varying temperatures. Adorned with a black walnut fingerboard, this elegant wood has a smooth feel with 22 frets and the lower cutaway offering access to the higher register.
Electronics & Hardware
Synonymous with Gretsch, the G5230T is equipped with a set of Black Top Filter’Tron pickups. These distinctive-sounding humbuckers deliver a super-clear tone with plenty of presence and sparkle. If you're playing in a busy mix, these pickups will ensure that you cut through, clean or with overdrive.
Another classic Gretsch feature is the iconic Bigsby tremolo. Fitted with the Licensed B50 Vibrato unit, the G5230T allows you to add gentle warble to chords for blues or surf-style playing.
