Gretsch G5230T Jet FT Electromatic Electric Guitar w/ BigsbyGretsch
In its 65 year existence the Gretsch Jet has been the hallmark sound for iconic players. The all-new G5230T Electromatic Jet FT Single-Cut with Bigsby captures that essential Jet power and fidelity at an incredible price.
Classic Jet tone begins with a chambered mahogany body with maple top that produces full lows and mids with an exceptionally smooth and present high end. The result is a deep acoustic foundation that is robust, yet balanced.
Black Top Filter'Tron Pickups - Quintessential Power and Clarity Black Top Filter'Tron pickups amplify and accentuate the Electromatic Jet FT's chambered body to produce a wide, balanced and transparent tone. Loud and punchy, this Jet sounds out with remarkable definition at any level of gain. Together, the body and pickups thunder with full, responsive lows and mids with a high end that sparkles without spikes.
The Electromatic Jet FT is equipped with essential features that give you complete tonal control. 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.
Condition: When this guitar came in from the factory, the only issue found by the authorized refurbisher was a few tiny lacquer cracks beneath the poly finish on the neck binding (see photo). This is purely cosmetic and doesn't affect the integrity of the guitar, so they just gave it a set-up and left it alone. Aside from the cosmetic flaw, the guitar is in mint condition. When we received the guitar, we dialed in the action to get it nice and low - 12th fret measurements are now 3/64" (bass side) and 2/64" (treble side). Guitar plays lightning fast with no fret buzz! Bigsby and all electronics are in perfect working order. Back of the headstock is stamped "used" and original serial # has been replaced with a new one.
