Gretsch introduce the all-new G5220 Electromatic Jet BT – a new Jet Series single-cut archtop with distinctive ‘V’ Stoptail and the new Black Top Broad’Tron™ humbucker pickups…

At the heart of each Electromatic Jet BT is a chambered Mahogany body with Maple top that produces a rich, present mid-range that accentuates big lows and shimmering highs. The G5220 Electromatic Jet BT is also one of the first models to feature a Black Walnut fingerboard. A pair of Black Top Broad’Tron humbucker pickups deliver a responsive but crispy vintage tone that’ll cut through any mix from thick, aggressive overdrive while maintaining astounding definition and note balance suitable for the most pristine clean tone. The combination of individual pickup volume controls, master tone and master volume with treble bleed circuit provides intuitive global control over your pickup and tone settings. Available in three finishes: Dark Cherry Metallic, Black, and Casino Gold.
