Description

Details

The Gretsch G5700 Electromatic Lap Steel offers the uniquely rich tones of an electric Hawaiian guitar. Following in the style of 1940s models, this beautiful instrument is sure to win over a new generation of players.

The slab-style body is crafted from rich mahogany, a fantastic tonewood that offers deeply resonant mid to low-end warmth. The subtle grain of the mahogany shines through the glorious tobacco sunburst finish, giving a distinctively luxurious aesthetic. A sleek coating of gloss urethane, which prevents unwanted rubbing or superficial damage to occur without impeding your playing ability, protects the finish.

The body finish is complimented perfectly by the chrome-plated hardware, including the standard open-gear tuning machines. These fantastic tuners retain tuning integrity faithfully but allow adjustments to be made with ease.

Unlike standard electric guitars, the Lap Steel features a 28-fret plastic fingerboard, adorned with a unique position inlay design that includes a circle, triangle, square and diamond. The nut width is 47.6mm (1.875") whilst the scale length runs to 572mm (22.5"), ensuring fantastic sustain and articulation. Working in partnership with the nut to guarantee exceptional sustain and tonal richness is the string-thru body setup, aiding in the G5700's delightful playability.

The Lap Steel is fitted with a Gretsch single-coil pickup, which is easily controlled using the single Master Volume and Tone switches. The tones produced are full of vibrant clarity and articulation - giving a distinctive bite and jangle that is associated with Lap Steel -, which are fantastic for slipping into a wide range of musical styles. Plug into your favourite amp and let loose; only your imagination will hold you back!

The Gretsch G5700 Electromatic Lap Steel is the perfect model for those who're looking to purchase an affordable and playable model that is ready for action, straight out of the box. Small and light enough to transport with you wherever you go; this beauty is sure to provide a lifetime of enjoyment.
