    Classic tonewood pairing

    The G5220 Electromatic Jet electric guitar represents classic Gretsch tone by not shying away from a chambered mahogany body. It may not be the lightest tonewood around, but it is one of the truly classic woods known for its rich, deep tone. A time-tested maple top also adds to the vintage tone of this guitar. The all-mahogany neck with black walnut fingerboard is the proverbial icing on the cake as this combination is known for its delicious tone.

    Blacktop Broad'Tron pickups give you classic Gretsch humbucker tone

    When you want classic '50s-era archtop guitar tone, you need real Gretsch humbuckers. That's why Gretsch gave the G5220 Electromatic Jet a pair of Blacktop Broad'Tron pickups. These humbuckers give you traditional Gretsch growl and grit, as well as deliver pristine clean tone when needed. In addition, individual pickup volume controls, master tone, and master volume with treble bleed circuit provide exceptional tonal range and control, putting you in the driver's seat as you explore your own style.
