The Gretsch G5220 Electromatic Jet BT landed the July cover and a rave review from UK’s Total Guitar magazine.

The G5220 earned 5-star praise from Total Guitar’s Rob Laing, who praised the surprisingly slim, light chambered body and Broad’Tron bridge and neck pickups that projected dark, yet crisp, clean tones.

“This thing has a meat and confidence with ringing chords and riffs that puts a broad smile on our faces,” wrote Laing.

Already impressed by the guitar’s versatility, Laing also pointed out how its street price of $449/ £340 really sealed the deal for TG’s “Best Buy Award.”

“There’s a care and attention to the aesthetic that Gretsch brings throughout its line and it’s here in healthy doses,” said Laing.
