Quick Overview

The Blacktop FilterTron Pickups on this guitar really make it stand out. As well as classic Gretsch tones they are capable of delivering a serious rock punch! It looks amazing in gold and the Gretsch screw-in strap butttons (which act as strap-locks) are a great final detail.


Electromatic® Pro Jet models take on a new voice and identity, with chambered basswood bodies and arched maple tops that resonate true to “That Great Gretsch Sound,” a two-tone body color scheme (Black, Gold or Two-Tone Sunburst tops with Walnut-stained back and sides) and dual “Black Top” Filter’Tron™ pickups. Other classic features include rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and “hump block” inlays, three-position pickup toggle switch, anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and stop tailpiece, “G” arrow knobs, white pearloid Gretsch-logo pickguard and threaded/knurled strap buttons.
