Details

The Gretsch G5230T Electromatic Jet FT Electric Guitar with Bigsby in Aleutian Blue is a single cut, chambered body electric guitar designed to deliver power, versatility and reliability. With Black Top Broad'Tron pickups and a V-Stoptail bridge, you can rest assured this guitar is always ready to go.

Chambered Solid Body Design

The G5230T Electromatic Jet FT looks like a regular solid body but is chambered to give it a rounded and airy tonality. The body is built using mahogany to a chambered design, which establishes confident mid-range energy. Paired with this is a laminated maple top, which cuts through with shimmering highs of the utmost clarity. Thanks to the laminated design, the body holds up well with regard to changes in humidity and temperature, making it an excellent model for touring with. The body finish is accentuated by the white binding with black/white purfling, whilst the silver plexi pickguard with black Gretsch logo works alongside the chrome finished hardware to complete the look.

Thin Profile Neck

Fitted to the body is a fast-playing mahogany neck, which benefits from a thin "U" profile that sits comfortably in the hand. The 24.6-inch scale length promotes warm, thicker sounding notes, whilst the white binding affords a seamless feel along the neck. Married to the neck is a sumptuous laurel fingerboard, with 22 medium jumbo frets decorated with pearloid Neo-Classic Thumbnail inlays to ensure you never lose your way. The flatter 12-inch radius makes it comfortable to fret chords or sail along swiftly, whilst the single-cutaway body profile allows the highest frets to be reached with ease.

Black Top Filter'Tron pickups

The Gretsch G5230T Electromatic Jet FT is home to a pair of Black Top Filter'Tron pickups, which makes the most of the chambered body to produce a wide range of tones. From classic rock 'n' roll to modern day high gain rock tones, from blues to country to prog, the Filter’Tron do a stellar job of delivering an awesome output. Control over the pickups comes in the form of independent volume controls for each pickup, as well as master tone and volume knobs.

Gig-ready hardware

For an unfussy performance, the G5230T is equipped with rock-solid hardware throughout. The headstock is home to diecast tuning machines with round buttons for meticulous tuning integrity. The body is fitted with an anchored adjusto-matic bridge with Bigsby B50 tailpiece, giving you another way to express yourself with flutters, dives and raises.
