A Fine Gretsch Archtop for an Amazing Low Price!

The Gretsch Electromatic G5435T Pro Jet electric guitar is the perfect way to get your hands on a real Gretsch archtop for a wonderful low price. The G5435T Pro Jet offers you the lightweight and warm sound of a chambered basswood body with a maple top. A pair of Black Top Filter'Tron pickups lets you tap into the definitive tone of Gretsch's classic humbucker design, and the G5435T Pro Jet's Bigsby B50 tailpiece gives you easy access to smooth and subtle bends. And it comes from Sweetwater, so you know your Gretsch G5435T Pro Jet will play beautifully right out of the box.

Gretsch Electromatic G5435T Pro Jet Archtop Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Basswood body with an arched maple top brings a new voice to the Electromatic line
  • Black Top Filter'Tron pickups give you classic Gretsch humbucker tone
  • Vintage-style Bigsby B50 tailpiece lets you preform smooth and subtle bends
Basswood body with an arched maple top brings a new voice to the Electromatic line

Gretsch reinvented their Electromatic line by giving the G5435T 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, though. Its 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 of its own. But make no mistake - the G5435T Pro Jet still gives you that great Gretsch sound!

Black Top Filter'Tron 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 G5435T Pro Jet a pair of Black Top Filter'Tron 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 G5435T Pro Jet's resonant body, adding woody thump and bark to its lower register.

Vintage-style Bigsby B50 tailpiece lets you preform smooth and subtle bends

Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby-style tail piece adds to the G5435T Pro Jet. Based on the original design created by Paul A. Bigsby, this Bigsby B50 tailpiece requires next to no effort to use, making it particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends with the Gretsch G5435T Pro Jet guitar.

Gretsch Electromatic G5435T Pro Jet Archtop Electric Guitar Features:
  • An incredibly affordable Gretsch guitar that gives you a traditional archtop at a great price
  • Instantly recognizable Jet body style is extremely comfortable to play
  • Chambered basswood body and laminate maple top add bright overtones to the classic Jet body style
  • A pair of Black Top Filter'Tron pickups provide characteristic Gretsch sound
  • Bigsby B50 tailpiece makes performing subtle bends easy

Gretsch G5435T Black

Guitar Addict. When I stumbled into Guitar Center enquiring about a Bigsby Tremelo for my Gibson ES335 I saw the Gretsch G5435T in black. Whoa! Dude!! It looked so much like my sold black 60's Les Paul that I needed it. Now! Guitar Center lead me to Sweetwater where I will only buy from now. This Guitar filled the void of my Les Paul. It's lighter, feels and plays like a jewel and the quality and price is incredible! It's totally cool even though it's made in China. Sorry... Sweetwater has no Sales Taxes, Free Shipping, Great Packing and the wizards there check out that guitar before you get it. This is a no brainer my friends!!!!

Electromatic Dream

The missing link between F and G. F sharp. Not Gee, flat. Sparkle and crunch for days. Superb craftsmanship. I almost purchased the less expensive case - I'm glad I went for the dedicated Gretch one. The guitar plays like a dream (even unplugged). That's the hallmark of something that's going to blow you away every time. And yes, it does.

Electromatic AWESOME

I just received my Gretch Elecromatic Pro Jet Bisby and I am truly blown away by the craftsmanship, flawless finish, smooth playability, incredible 'sparkle to crunch' tonal range, the light weight and chambered spruce top's resonance, and of course, the Bigsby. The accessibility of the pickup toggle and master volume make for some killer fast tonal switch-off choices. The body contours are ideally sculpted for comfort; the neck and body binding are smooth and eye-catching. I love the secure screw-clamp strap knobs - no more "dedicated" and aftermarket locking systems. It slipped by me in the photos, but the "mother-of-pearl" pickguard is a nice retro feature. The pickup mounts are a groovy pearlescent and clean feature as well. The "Filter'Tron" humbuckers have a brilliant sparkle for clean playing and a killer crunch with just my amp alone. It sounds great acoustically for practice as well thanks to the chambered body. This just became my favorite guitar. Lastly, (this is not solicited), the entire customer service and attention to detail by Sweetwater is outstanding in the business. If I have a question, there's always a very knowledgeable person to either talk to in person, or keep me updated via email. I'm fussy about shipments, but this is my 6th purchase from Sweetwater and I couldn't be happier with their service and quality assurance. Their dovetailed tracking and notifications are spot on, and make for hassle-free buying. If you truly LOVE guitars, this beauty ias a must-have in the lineup.

Sweet Sounds from Sweetwater

this thing is sweet! I bought a 72 Fender Thinline a few years ago from you guys. Its been my main go to axe,but it just got replaced. This guitar has great tone and the Bigsby is wonderful. I use it for just about all my worship music. And Patrick at Sweetwater made the experience even better with his personal interest in what I play and quick delivery of my guitar. I'm a Sweetwater customer for life.

I'm in love!

I was blown away by this guitar. It exceeded my expectations .First off, it's beautiful and classy, top workmanship, but then the sound. Very chime-like clear tone and great definition. It is very Beatles for sure, in the tone department and looks. Also has a fantastic middle position Rock 'n' Roll tone. Searing powerful treble position and warm neck pickup. I could not be happier with it. It is at the top of the favorites in my collection.
