What we say:

Fresh from the Electromatic range and full of retro style, this Gretsch G5220 Jet is a mean rock machine.

This Jet has a chambered Mahogany body and a set neck, also made from Mahogany. This single cutaway Jet is all about hard rock, sustain and thick crunchy sounds.

Lots of cool Gretsch details abound on this model: multi-ply binding, large block fret markers and a rather distinctive V-shaped stop tailpiece mark this affordable axe out as one that really cuts a dash.

Newly developed Broad’Tron pickups supply a biting tone with plenty of clarity and definition. Far more than retro twang but less than full on metal overload, these excellent pickups deliver a broad palette of quality rock tones.

The thin U-profiled neck has a slightly shorter 24.6” scale length and 22 medium jumbo frets on a 12” radius for a fantastic feel that is defiantly modern. Vintage looks and modern playability? Sounds perfect to us!

This Gretsch G5220 is an excellent option for anybody in the market for a single cutaway mahogany guitar for rocking out on. This model is available here in Deep Cherry Metallic.

Specification

Chambered Mahogany Bodies
At the heart of each Electromatic Jet BT is a chambered mahogany body with maple top that produces a rich, present mid-range that accentuates big lows and shimmering highs.

All-new Black Top Broad’Tron Pickups
A pair of Black Top Broad’Tron pickups drives the chambered mahogany body with maple top through thick, aggressive overdrive while maintaining astounding definition and note balance suitable for the most pristine clean tone.

Versatile Controls
The Electromatic Jet BT is equipped with essential features that give you complete tonal control. The combination of individual pickup volume controls, master tone and master volume with treble bleed circuit provides intuitive global control over your pickup and tone settings.

Customer reviews

Overall Rating 4.6 (7 reviews)

Beautifully made and set up. Sounds great and plays well. Vol and tone knobs could be more progressive and G-string doesn't stay in tune as well as the rest.

John G. - 10/10/2020

The body and neck are good with a high quality finish. The pickups are very good (but needed adjusting out of the box). Action height is good, intonation almost spot on (needs a tweak). The hardware is as expected for L400, tuners could be more precise (but could be upgraded if desired) and bridge is acceptable (again can be upgraded). Fingerboard has some traces of glue from the binding, again this is typical of lower priced guitars from China, it has no effect on playability just aesthetically not as satisfactory. Fret ends are OK but frets needed a slight rub with emery paper to smooth off a bit (this would happen with use but nicer to be smooth from the outset)

Martin R. - 9/10/2020

Beautiful guitar for the money. I looked at similar guitars around the same price but the sound of the elecromatic pick ups put the Gretsch in front. The quality of the finish is spot on and it is a very playable guitar.

Great item! Great price! No wonder it was hard to source. I couldn?t find a store in 3 diff cities to try it before I bought it. Took a chance and it paid off. Excellent!
