The Gretsch G5435LH Pro Jet Black Left-handed electric guitar brings classic Gretsch tone to new heights. Boasting a chambered basswood body and arched maple top. this beauty offers a fantastic resonance. Couple that with impeccable looks and a subtle yet striking finish on the top with a walnut stained back and sides, and you've got yourself a very special model indeed.
The fingerboard is rosewood, emblazoned with "hump block" inlays, with 22 medium jumbo frets. The pickguard is pearloid and features a Gretsch logo. Other hardware appointments include "G" arrow knobs, a three-way pickup switch, an anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge and a stop tailpiece.
The Gretsch Black Top Filter'Tron dual-coil pickups create an incredibly rich tone, with a high output and plenty of vintage warmth. The two coils work together to filter out Hum, Neon Noises, Crackle and Electrical Disturbance. Although Gibson registered the patent first, Gretsch Filter'Tron humbuckers actually pre-date the first Gibson models and their pioneering designs have graced the biggest stages in the hands of greats like Chet Atkins. These pickups were introduced at Summer Namm in 1957 and their distinctive tone is so smooth that they are still amongst the greatest models available!

I was more then pleased with it. I absolutely love the clean twangy tone that Gretsch are renowned for creating in all their guitars. It’s got a great vibe to it and I instantly fell in love with its old school tones and tricks.
The guitar itself is beautiful in appearance and sound and definitely an awesome guitar for someone who’s at a medium or high level of guitar playing. Best of all its only £345 its great value for money! I love it, my friends love it and I would recommend it to anyone.
Dawsons were also really good as they helped me order it quick and easy and it was delivered within a week from Manchester. There customer service was great and anything I wanted to know, they explained clearly to me. Once again I would recommend this guitar great pickups, tones and style for less pennies. Thank you Dawsons for supplying me with this rocking guitar! :)
