Taking the classic hollowbody design and upgrading it with some modern features, the Gretsch G5655TG Electromatic Center Block Junior in Cadillac Green updates Grestch guitars for a modern musical era. More feedback resistant than your traditional Gretsch hollowbody, the Gretsch G5655TG Electromatic features a Spruce centre block design that not only reduces on stage noise but also aids tone transition. As with all guitars in the Electromatic range, the G5655TG features Black Top Broad Tron humbucker pickups, specifically designed to authentically replicate the sound of classic Gretsch Filtertron pickups, with a tight low end and crystal clear, sparkling highs.
The Gretsch G5655TG Electromatic Centre Block Junior in Cadillac Green features a smaller Junior sized body compared to other hollowbodies in the range. Not only does this drastically reduce feedback issues, but also provides a much more comfortable playing experience for those who usually find big body Gretsch guitars uncomfortable to play. The Gretsch G5655TG Electromatic is effortlessly playable, featuring a 12" fretboard radius, 'Thin U' neck profile and medium jumbo frets for the perfect combination of vintage feel and modern playability. Nothing says Gretsch more than a Bigsby Vibrato, and the G5655TG features a classic Bigsby B70 for subtle and sweet vibrato sounds. Other features include pearloid Neo Classic Thumbnail fret markers, G-Arrow control knobs and ornate gold hardware to complete that classic Gretsch look.
The Gretsch Electromatic series offers classic Gretsch instruments at an affordable price point, drawing on classic models for guitars with plenty of vintage vibe and trademark Gretsch tone.
