Gretsch G5655T-CB, Electromatic Center-Block, Double Cutaway Electric Guitar, Black Finish
Nothing quite exudes class, personality, and outright versatility, quite like a Gretsch. With the centre-block Duo-Jet guitar first making an appearance in the mid 1950's, the Gretsch "Golden Age" had truly begun.
With the G655T-CB you get a Double-Jet (double cutaway) style Electromatic guitar with a built-in, solid-spruice centre-block to help make the guitar high-gain friendly. This classy guitar has a number of great features and delivers that classic Gretsch tone with style.
Simple, elegant design with Bigsby Tailpiece for authentic country 'twang
By stripping back the bells and whistles and focusing on great tone, the Gretsch G5655T-CB really does deliver a jaw-dropping sound that is typically 'Gretsch' in every way. Thanks to a pair of dynamic mini humbucker pickups, the G5655T-CB offers an amazing array of tones that covers everything from scorching rock gain to glistening jazzy sparkle. A potent, wide-ranging sound that never fails to impress.
The solid spruce Center-Block running through the body offers solid punch and twang that have made Electromatic models such a hit among rockabilly and Blues guitarists. As a result, feedback is easy to control with a lively "high gain-friendly" tone. Combine this with a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece for smooth and subtle bends and you've got a vintage workhorse guitar on your hands.
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. The G5655T-CB also has three-way pickup switching, single-ply black pickguard with Gretsch logo, four "G-Arrow" control knobs (volume for each pickup, bridge-pickup-only tone and master volume), anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge, Grover tuners and knurled strap retainer knobs.
