Gretsch introduce new G5655T-CB Electromatic® Center-Block – featuring That Great Gretsch Sound™ with the “center-block advantage”. The interior solid spruce center block running the length of the guitar’s 1 ¾”-deep Double Jet™ body makes for a lively “high gain-friendly” tone and delivers greater control over the kind of feedback players want.

Other premium features include five-ply maple body construction with a bound arched top and back, a bound maple neck and a 12.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and Neo-Classic™ “thumbnail” inlays, four “G-arrow” control knobs, anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and flat-handle Bigsby®-licensed B50 vibrato and Grover® tuners.

The new dual-coil Super HiLo’Tron™ neck pickup is voiced to produce a clean, high-end sparkle with robust low-end, low-noise performance. Together with the “Black Top” Filter’Tron™ bridge pickup, it’s a potent tonal combination.
