Gretsch announces the debut of several new Electromatic Series guitars and bass. The additions to the immensely popular Electromatic collection take on a new voice and identity while resonating true to the unmistakable Gretsch sound. The series welcomes nine new models, including two basses and two left-handed guitars.
New to the series are the Black G5445T and Gold G5448T Double Jet™ models. These double-cutaway guitars have a chambered basswood body and an arched maple top; a two-tone body color scheme; dual “Black Top” Filter’Tron™ pickups and a Bigsby® B50 tailpiece. Other features include a 12” radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and “Hump-Block” inlays; three-position pickup toggle switch; anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge, G-arrow knobs and a white pearloid Gretsch-logo pickguard.
The Cherry G5103 and Black G5105 CVT III guitars offer a slim design with a thundering sound. These sonically stellar models sport the original Gretsch “CVT” thin-profile mahogany body design; a bolt-on maple neck that joins the body at the 18th fret, and three Gretsch mini dual-coil pickups that sound hi-fi rich and high-gain friendly. Additional features include three-position pickup toggle switch; 12” radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets; G-arrow knobs and anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with stop tailpiece.
The series also welcomes the Junior Jet™ Bass. “The Great Gretsch Sound” rings true with this solid body bass equipped with classic Gretsch appointments capable of filling a room with massive subsonic tones. Features include a 30.3” scale neck; Gretsch mini dual-coil pickup; 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets; four-saddle bridge and a black Gretsch-logo pickguard. This model is available in Black and Tobacco Sunburst finishes.
Also new to the collection are the Two-Tone Sunburst G5434, Black G5435 and Gold G5438 Pro Jet™ models. These chambered, single cutaway classics, also available in left-handed models (G5435LH and G5434LH), have an arched maple top; a 12” radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and “Hump Block” inlays; three-position pickup toggle switch; anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and stop tailpiece; G-arrow knobs and white pearloid Gretsch-logo pickguard.
