What we say:
The Electromatic range is an accessible way to get that inimitable Gretsch style, feel and tone. Made with all of the details and dimensions that make Gretsch what they are, Electromatics are rightfully seen across the planet in the arms of style-conscious tone-hounds who want to make an impression sonically and visually.
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 Jade Grey.
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 drive 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.
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.
