The all-new Gretsch[reg] G5220G Electromatic[reg] Jet[trade] BT Single-Cut with V-Stoptail and Gold Hardware delivers Broad'Tron[trade] power with classic Jet clarity.

At the heart of each Electromatic Jet BT is a chambered mahogany body with maple top that produces a rich, present mid-range that accentuates big lows and shimmering highs. A pair of Black Top Broad'Tron pickups drive the chambered mahogany body with maple top through thick, aggressive overdrive while maintaining astounding definition and note balance suitable for the most pristine clean tone.

The Electromatic Jet BT 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.

This is an L&M exclusive so when these are gone I think that's all there is. Got mine off the wall and it was set up perfect and I can find no flaws on it at all. I'm used to tweaking new guitars and the only thing I could find was to straighten the pickguard a little. It is a real beauty and the black gold finish is like Fender's Texas tea, it looks like crude oil with a very fine gold metal flake in a dark brown glossy base. You can't expect top quality Gretsch Filtertrons or TV Jones pickups at this price point but the Blacktop Filtertrons do just fine, clean or with overdrive. They cut costs by not using top quality audio taper pots so I will change those but everything else thing is good to go. Fretwork, nut, tuning stability, intonation, action, and pickup balance are all tweaked to perfection!

I just got this guitar today and it blew my mind how much power this guitar was packing. Great for chimey clean sounds, kinda like a telecaster sound, but MUCH better with distortion. You get such a heavier yet bright tone on the bridge and you get great bass without muddying the sound in the neck pick up and gold hardware is just beautiful!
