Our Gretsch lineup gets even more robust this summer with new Electromatic Double Jets, Electromatic Center Blocks and a few limited edition guitars.
Here’s a look at 7 brand-new models to get your hands on!
G5232T Electromatic® Double Jet™ FT with Bigsby®
For those of you who have been holding out for our new Jet FT models but in a double-cut offering, we’ve got you covered.
The all-new G5232T Electromatic Double Jet FT with Bigsby models come dressed in an array of vibrant finishes including Casino Gold, Dark Cherry Metallic, Midnight Sapphire and Tahiti Red. All colors feature a silver pickguard, chrome hardware and Bigsby B50 tailpiece.
Black Top Filter’Tron pickups deliver a warm, well-balanced transparent tone and can handle any style you toss at them. Want a little more grit for instance? These pickups have also been designed to radiate remarkable definition at increased levels of gain or distortion.
The chambered mahogany body with arched maple top of the G5232T provides two benefits – comfort and increased sonic presence. The reduced weight minimizes shoulder and neck fatigue for hours of comfortable playing, while the chambering design improves acoustics for lows and mids with a well-defined high end.

Aside from its dapper disposition, the G5622T gets its voice from dual Black Top Broad’Tron humbucking pickups that produce shimmering highs with increased dynamic tone. The spruce center block aids in reducing undesired feedback, giving you a crystal clear performance.
