No nonsense, Electromatic[reg] Jet[trade] FT models are the perfect real, pure and powerful Gretsch[reg] instruments. They're your next-step Gretsch - bold, dynamic and articulate, and crafted with essential Gretsch sound, style and playability.

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 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.

Features
• Upgraded chambered mahogany body with maple top for a strong sonic profile and exceptional acoustic balance
• Lower set mahogany neck for effortless access and performance
• Black Top Filter'Tron[trade] pickups
• Master volume with treble bleed circuit, master tone and individual pickup volume controls

This guitar is a dream. Right out of the box it was all setup and ready to be played. The assortment of tones you get from this beautiful guitar is what every guitarist wants (shimmering, crunchy, twangy, velvety..) a well rounded guitar. Easy to play, neck feels great and did I mention the gorgeous colour. I can't stop admiring my guitar (however mine came with gold hardware) which in my personal opinion makes it look even more dazzling and regal. The bigsby is awesome, but yes if you play with it a lot in your songs you are going to have to re tune it but that's to be expected! Just like you would if your bending a ton in your solos. There is an easy fix to it though. I play jazz, blues, rockabilly, soul, R&B, classic rock, alternative, country.. Yup you get this guitar does it all! Thank you L&M and thank you Gretsch 💖 This guitar was worth every penny, she was the guitar I was looking for

This guitar has been awful, I purchased it in September and it has given me nothing but trouble since. The stock nut binds like crazy and makes the bigsby unusable, the tuning stability issues are so bad I can't make it through a song before it is completely unplayable. Something in the bridge rattles like crazy, it makes a horrible hiss everytime I play the third string. Don't waste your time on this piece of garbage.
