Gretsch bring you the G5445T Double Jet guitar with a new voice and identity delivering “That Great Gretsch Sound” from a chambered, double-cutaway basswood body.
Gretsch Sound in a Solid Body
The body of the G5445T Double Jet has been crafted from Basswood and is chambered to make it more comfortable to hold and to play. An elegantly arched top of Maple has been designed to resonate and deliver the true Gretsch sound.
Another design point of note in the Gretsch Double Jet is the eye-catching double cutaway design to the body. While giving the G5445T an extra layer of aesthetic appeal it also serves to make playing the higher frets easier; perfect for solos and adventurous guitar playing.
The neck is Maple, has a gloss polyester finish with a scale length of 24.6” and holds a classic Rosewood fretboard.
Adorning the fretboard are 22 medium jumbo sized frets while the position inlays are pearloid hump-blocks delivering some great visual style.
Awesome Electronics and Hardware
Delivering the G5445T its incredible sound are two Blacktop Filter’Tron pickups. Commonly found on Gretsch’s hollow body models, the Filter’Tron pickups have been extremely popular for many years.
Offering the warm sound of a humbucker but with the brightness and clarity you’d expect from a single-coil pickup, Filter’Tron pickups bring you the best of both worlds and truly deliver the famous Gretsch sound.
To control the electronics you have a few different features. First there is a straightforward three-way pickup selector switch that is found on the top horn of the Gretsch Double Jet’s body. This allows you to select between using the neck and bridge pickups individually or both together.
Then there are the control knobs. Towards the bottom end of the G5445T Double Jet you will find two volume controls; one for the bridge pickup and another for the neck pickup and then a third control knob that acts as the master tone control. Lastly, on the bottom horn, underneath the neck pickup, you will find a master volume control.
For additional visual flair, the control knobs are the iconic Gretsch ‘G-Arrow’ knobs which are functional, easy to use, and just look great.
The bridge on the G5445T is an Adjusto-Matic with a Bigsby B50 Vibrato tailpiece. The addition of the Bigsby tremolo allows delivery of those classic vibrato sounds in the way that only a genuine Bigsby can deliver.
Great Guitar on All Fronts
The Gretsch G5445T Double Jet gives you the power and familiarity of playing a solid-body guitar while delivering the famous Gretsch sound that other guitar manufacturers just can’t replicate.
Also, as standard with Gretsch guitars, the Double Jet looks fantastic with an aesthetic that rivals how good the sound and performance of this guitar is!
