The G5222 Electromatic Jet electric guitar represents the timeless Gretsch tone by not shying away from a chambered mahogany body. It may not be the lightest tonewood around, but it is 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 laurel fingerboard is the proverbial icing on the cake as this combination is known for its delicious tone.
When you want a '50s-era Gretsch guitar tone, you need real Gretsch humbuckers. That's why Gretsch gave the G5222 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.
The G5222 allows you to pull off a lot of tonal tricks. Volume controls for each pickup help you create a perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control fine-tunes your sound once you've got the pickups dialed in. Finally, a 3-position toggle allows you to select pickup combinations quickly and easily. And of course, you'll get a sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually.
