Chambered Mahogany Jet Body
The G5220 Electromatic Jet features a chambered mahogany body, which offers exceptionally rich, and resonant tones. The warmth and depth of the mahogany makes it ideal for punchy rock music while the maple top extends the tonal characteristics by enhancing the brightness; and it offers shimmering highs for a full-bodied tone. The body features a single cutaway for easy access to higher frets, resulting in a smooth performance.
Powerful Black Top Broad'Tron Pickups
The Black Top Broad'Tron Pickups are located at the neck and the bridge of the G5220 guitar. They produce the renowned Gretsch power, with excellent aggression ideal for heavy music styles. With fierce tones and plenty of overdrive, the Broad'Tron Pickups do not disappoint. The pickups retain good definition and articulation for a crystal clear tone. The Gretsch Electromatic Jet is equipped with a master tone and a master volume with treble bleed circuit to prevent a loss of treble when you turn the volume down for a tone with good bite. The controls also include individual pickup volume controls and a 3 position pickup toggle switch for ultimate tonal shaping; offering a versatile and flexible tone.
