The G5620T semi-hollowbody electric guitar by Gretsch, is the product of over 130 years of experience in building high-quality instrument. It is an absolute joy to play and produces tones to die for.
The arched top, back and sides of the body are built using ever reliable maple, a dense, hard and heavy tonewood that produces extremely bright, precise tones with tight lows and a very delicate output. Running along the full length of the body is a spruce centre block, that allows the hollow body to resist resonant-frequency feedback. Therefore, when gain is applied to the signal - through the pickups - it can be accurately controlled to produce a sweet tone.
The spruce and maple combine to give excellent tonal clarity so that each and every note rings out with distinction. The body's finish is protected by a thin but extremely durable coating of urethane. This way the tonewood can resonate without any hindrance to deliver a much fuller sound with tonnes of character. To complete the incredibly classy finish - as well as offer a greater level of protection against knocks and scrapes -, the body and sound holes are neatly bound.
The maple neck combined with the rosewood fingerboard, compliments the maple and spruce in the body by gently smoothing out any harsh edges in the upper frequency range whilst slightly compressing and firming out the lower frequencies. It produces dynamic mids that have a snappy attack with plenty of punch when played hard, but excellent clarity when played light and soft. Combined with the 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, this produces a sweetly softened and warmer sound.
The fingerboard is cut to a very comfortable 12.5 inch radius that rests sweetly in the hand and is absolutely perfect for string bends without the unwanted fret buzz. Classic white pearloid neo-classic "Thumbnail" position inlays guide your way as you play.
The G5620T features a Black Top Filter'Tron pickup in the bridge position and a dual-coil SUPER HiLo'Tron pickup in the neck position. The Black Top mini-humbucker in the bridge delivers wave after wave of power, perfect for those looking for a guitar to rock out on. The dual-coil Super HiLo'Tron represents the high-end frequency output perfectly with shimmering, golden tones being projected with absolute clarity, perfect for choppy jazz licks.
The anchored adjusto-matic bridge ensures the strings' connection to the body is guaranteed throughout each and every performance giving you complete reassurance whilst you play. The much loved Bigsby-license B70 vibrato tailpiece allows you to add your own unique style. Tuning integrity is maintained thanks to the excellent Grover die cast tuners across the headstock.
