Gretsch G5655TG Electromatic Center Block Jr. Single-Cut with Bigsby in Azure Metallic

Description

The Gretsch G5655TG Electromatic® Center Block Jr. mixes classic Gretsch semi-hollow tones with great playability. Smaller than your average semi-hollow Gretsch, the G5655TG has that classic tone and aesthetic while being better suited to high volume, higher gain playing.

Center Block Jr. Body

The body design is what Gretsch call a “Center Block Jr.” These guitars are smaller than a regular Gretsch Center Block guitar and are a lot less cumbersome to play. The smaller body size, in combination with the chambered spruce center block, makes the guitar far more stable at higher volume and gain levels. Center Block Jrs are rock machines that allow you to enjoy the warmth and resonance of a semi-hollow without worrying about unwanted feedback.

The neck on the guitar is comfortable to play thanks to a few things. The thin “U” profile neck has rounded shoulders which is great for playing chords and wrapping your thumb around the neck, but the thinner profile makes it less chunky than a traditional “U” shape neck. This thinner profile, in combination with the 12” radius fingerboard also makes single note runs a breeze.

Pickups and Hardware

The Black Top Broad’Tron pickups in this guitar are humbucking and are designed to get that powerful yet articulate tone that Gretschs are famous for. Broad’Trons sound great clean playing country and blues-y genres and really come alive when you turn up the gain for some punchier rock styles.

The Bigsby vibrato tailpiece is another classic Gretsch feature on this guitar. Not only does it look cool, the Bigsby allows you to throw some subtle pitch shifting into your playing. This guitar is finished off with gold hardware for a classy and eye-catching look.
