LAUNCHING TODAY: Gretsch Electromatic Hollow Bodies

Electromatic® Classic hollow bodies

These big, bold electric guitars bring the brand’s treasured slam and roar to life. Whether you’re looking for the punch of a six-string or the shimmer of a twelve-string, the FT-5E Filter’Tron™ pickups will bring the vintage thunder to the deep, booming tones that only a hollowbody can deliver. All models feature a beautiful, refined laminated maple body reinforced with bridge block bracing. A classic “C”-shaped maple neck with a laurel fingerboard gives the guitar a classic feel in the hand, and the Graph Tech® NuBone® nut and Adjusto-Matic™ bridge provide impressive sustain. Master volume with treble bleed circuit keeps the tone bright at high volumes. Electromatic Classic hollow bodies are available in single or double cutout, with a Bigsby® B60 tremolo or G-cutout tailpiece. These Classic Hollow bodies come in a nice variety of model-specific colors, such as Orange Stain, Azure Metallic Airline Silver, and Snowcrest White.

Electromatic® Jet™ BT

These models are perfect instruments for those looking for a new step in the classic tone that Gretsch is famous for. Their chambered mahogany body with a maple top produces a rich, present midrange with the perfect combination of attack and resonance. A pair of Black Top Broad’Tron pickups deliver the tone you desire from a Jet: capable of aggressive overdrive with the definition needed for clean, pristine tone. The combination of individual pickup volume controls, master tone, and master volume with treble bleed circuitry provides global control over your pickup and tone parameters. The Jet BT Single-Cut is available in a left-handed configuration finished in Jade Metallic and a right-handed configuration finished in Jade Metallic, Bristol Fog or Midnight Sapphire.

Baritone Electromatic® Jet™

These guitars bring a sound all their own to the Electromatic series. If you’re looking for deep lows, thick mids, and snappy highs, the Jet Baritone delivers. Thanks to the excellent balance of its solid mahogany body, the mini humbuckers produce subsonic tones while keeping every note beautifully distinct. Measuring at 29.75″, the extended scale neck allows for B-to-B tuning – use it to add color and texture in the studio or to double a lead on stage for fiery live sound. The Electromatic Jet Baritone is available with a fixed v-stoptail tailpiece finished in Bristol Fog or Imperial Stain or with a Bigsby tailpiece available in Midnight Sapphire.

Electromatic® Junior Jet™ Bass II Short Scale

These bass guitars sport all the classic Gretsch appointments, delivering massive, room-filling subsonic tones that spring from the solid basswood body and versatile pickups. The Junior Jet Bass has a smooth, balanced tone that is easily delivered thanks to the comfortable and easy-playing small-scale maple neck (30.3″) with laurel fingerboard. Low-end color, smoothness and comfort make this a bass guitar worthy of the Electromatic name. Available in Imperial Stain, Bristol Fog and Shell Pink.
