Gretsch reinvented their Electromatic line by giving the G5435TG Pro Jet electric guitar a wonderfully lightweight and resonant chambered basswood body. This basswood body isn't just lighter on your shoulder than traditional mahogany — it's also lighter on tone, adding crisp treble and extra bite to the Pro Jet's sound. You'll find that this quality complements the Pro Jet's maple archtop perfectly, imbuing this guitar with a character all its own. But make no mistake — the G5435TG Pro Jet still gives you that great Gretsch sound!
When you want that classic '50s-era archtop guitar tone, you need real Gretsch humbuckers. That's why Gretsch gave their G5435TG Pro Jet a pair of Black Top Filter'Tron pickups. Unlike most humbuckers, these traditional Gretsch pickups give you a characteristically bright and open sound that's jangly in the highs with an almost single-coil bite. Their more typically humbucker-sounding bass also complements the G5435TG Pro Jet's resonant body, adding a woody thump and bark to its lower register.
Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby-style tailpiece adds to the G5435TG Pro Jet. Based on the original design created by Paul A. Bigsby, this Bigsby B50 tailpiece is effortless to use, making it particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends with the Gretsch G5435TG Pro Jet guitar.
