Pure Jet Power

In its 65-year existence the Gretsch Jet has been the hallmark sound for iconic players. The all-new G5230T Electromatic Jet FT Single-Cut with Bigsby(R) captures that essential Jet power and fidelity at an incredible price.

Chambered Mahogany Bodies - Loud and Clear

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 - Quintessential Power and Clarity

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.

The Electromatic Jet FT 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.

Just received my Cadillac Green Jet and is it beautiful! zZounds suddenly had one that was blemished that I took a shot on (I've been looking at the Cadillac Green ones for a while but zZounds didn't carry that color) and I can't find a thing wrong and it sounds great! I have a 2017 Candy Apple Red/Gold Hardware 5435TG Limited Edition Pro Jet in like-new condition that I don't play because I'm afraid of scratching it and only 600 were made, so I bought this one to takes its place while I morph the 5435TG into a permanent case queen. The only difference is this has the laurel fret board instead of the rosewood one, and the hardware in chrome and not gold. Action, intonation and finish are perfect and those Blacktop Filtertrons are wonderful for all genres. And this particular one has a sweet "growl" in the background that comes out nicely when distorted/over-driven. I have already ordered a VibraMate device to snap on the Bigsby for easy string changing and this baby is ready to rock! Great addition to my extensive harem. Gretsch always has a great product.
