If you march to your own drummer, you don't want to be seen (or heard) with the same axe everyone else plays. Enter the distinctively different G5431G Pro Jet. Gretsch started with a chambered basswood body and maple top, then loaded in two Blacktop FilterTron pickups, for great gobs of glassy grunt. This Sweetwater exclusive model features gold hardware and a red finish. With comfy playability, affordability, and unique sonics and visuals in its corner, the Gretsch G5431G Pro Jet is a contender for your next guitar.
Gretsch G5431G Pro Jet Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Basswood body with an arched maple top brings a new voice to the Electromatic line
- Blacktop FilterTron pickups give you classic Gretsch humbucker tone
- Fast-playing fretboard
Gretsch reinvented their Electromatic line by giving the G5431G Pro Jet electric guitar a wonderfully lightweight and resonant chambered basswood body. This basswood body isn't just lighter on your shoulder than traditional mahogany, it's also lighter on tone, adding crisp treble and extra bite to the Pro Jet's sound. You'll find that this quality complements the Pro Jet's maple archtop perfectly, imbuing this guitar with a character all its own. But make no mistake, the G5431G Pro Jet still gives you that great Gretsch sound!Blacktop FilterTron pickups give you classic Gretsch humbucker tone
When you want that classic '50s-era archtop guitar tone, you need real Gretsch humbuckers. That's why Gretsch gave their G5431G Pro Jet a pair of Blacktop FilterTron pickups. Unlike most humbuckers, these traditional Gretsch pickups give you a characteristically bright and open sound that's jangly on your highs with an almost single-coil bite. Their more typically humbucker-sounding bass also complements the G5431G Pro Jet's resonant body, adding woody thump and bark to its lower register.Fast-playing fretboard
The rosewood fretboard on the G5431G Pro Jet 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.
