Basswood body with an arched maple top brings a new voice to the Electromatic line

Gretsch reinvented their Electromatic line by giving the G5425 Jet Club electric guitar a wonderfully lightweight and resonant chambered basswood body. This basswood body isn't just lighter on your shoulder than traditional mahogany, its also lighter on tone, adding crisp treble and extra bite to the Jet Club's sound. You'll find that this quality complements the Jet Club's maple archtop perfectly, imbuing this guitar with a character all of its own. But make no mistake, the G5425 Jet Club still gives you that great Gretsch sound!

Classic Gretsch humbucker tone

Gretsch has earned a reputation for producing high-quality pickups, and the G5425 Jet Club packs two humbuckers to give you the warm glow associated with '50s Gretsch guitars. Plug into your favorite tube amplifier and select both pickups to fill the room with organic resonance and smoky tones. But flip to the bridge humbucker and peg the volume knob, and you've got a hot, biting sound at your fingertips.

Fast-playing fretboard

The rosewood fretboard on the G5425 Jet Club sports a 12" radius, perfect for fast fretwork. You'll love how fluidly your fingers navigate this fretboard, which features 22 medium jumbo frets for effortless playability.
