Pure Jet[trade] Power{/h3}
The all-new G5232T Electromatic® Double Jet[trade] FT with Bigsby® captures essential Jet power and fidelity at a great price.

Chambered Mahogany Bodies - Loud and Clear
Classic Jet tone begins with a chambered mahogany body with arched maple top that produces full lows and mids with a well-defined, yet smooth high end. The result is a strong and balanced acoustic foundation fit for a variety of tones.

Black Top Filter'Tron[trade] Pickups - Quintessential Power and Clarity
Black Top Filter'Tron pickups amplify and accentuate the Electromatic Double 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.

Total 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.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreSt. Catharines, Ontario
I purchased my new cherry metalic Gretsch in late 2019 for around $800, plug it into my Vox VT40 and it produces that early 1960's George Harrison sound. Fingerboard is smooth enough and lots of range (crisp, chimy, twang, smooth or crunchy rhythm). It has weight for a smaller guitar, but sits comfortable over a knee or with a strap and very enjoyable to play. The Bigsby work well, but after a few string bends it may vary slightly out of tune on occasion. Nevertheless, its great value for the price, looks great and I really enjoy it. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a very nice mid-priced guitar.
