Is this one of the most elegant-looking Gretsch guitars ever made? We certainly think so! And at a jaw-droppingly attainable price-point, this is your chance to grab a truly special limited edition instrument with class and future collectable prestige in abundance.
Limited Edition Double Jet
This particular Gretsch model was initially made for our friends at Chicago Music Exchange as a special run, but we've collaborated with them and Gretsch to bring this awesome Double Jet to this side of the pond! Finished in a gorgeous Daphne Blue colour, the G5232 Electromatic Double Jet FT is a mesmerising guitar that also boasts a pair of Black Top Filter’Tron pickups for authentic Gretsch tone, a luxurious Laurel fingerboard and spellbinding gold hardware.
An old-school Gretsch Double Jet at heart, this symmetrical-bodied guitar is largely crafted from Mahogany — giving the instrument a deep and harmonically-rich sound. A set-neck construction enhances sustain, while a chambered body design not only lightens the guitar but boosts resonance for a responsive playing feel too!
Thin "U" Neck Profile
Gretsch guitars are adored for their comfort, and this limited edition G5232 Electromatic Double Jet FT is no exception. Sporting a Thin "U"-shaped neck, this addictively-pleasant profile will appeal strongly to Gretsch aficionados familiar with their carve, but is sure to strike a chord with newer, contemporary guitarists who seek stellar playing performance.
Black Top Filter’Tron Pickups
Experienced guitar players will know that Gretsch instruments possess a very distinctive "jangly" sound, which can be mostly attributed to the unique design of their pickups. The G5232 Electromatic Double Jet FT captures that iconic sonic character with its Black Top Filter’Tron pickups, but promises bolder and ballsier low-end tones that still have plenty of top-end bite — without sounding shrill or "ice-picky".
With independent volume controls for each pickup, as well as master volume and tone knobs, there's also a useful 3-position toggle switch that allows you to isolate each Filter’Tron or use a combination of the two — providing a wide tonal palette.
