Loads of Tone, Awesome Sustain, Pure Gretsch Vibe!

The Gretsch G5655T-CB Electromatic Center-Block semi-hollowbody electric guitar delivers a broad range of tone to fit wide selection of musical styles. The G5655T-CB's Blacktop FilterTron humbucker bridge pickup provides all the bark and bite you need for blues and rockabilly, whereas a pristinely clear Super HiLo'Tron dual coil at the neck satisfies your need for cool jazz and old-time country playing. A solid spruce center block provides you with tons of sustain, courtesy of a real Bigsby licensed tailpiece that lets you bend notes smoothly and evenly on your Gretsch G5655T-CB Electromatic Center-Block guitar.

Gretsch G5655T-CB Electromatic Center-Block Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Unique mini-humbucker combo delivers massive tonal range
  • Long spruce center block enhances your tone
  • Smooth vibrato action, courtesy of a real Bigsby tailpiece
Unique mini-humbucker combo delivers massive tonal range

Thanks to a special pair of mini humbuckers, the Gretsch G5655T-CB semi-hollowbody guitar gives you an extra-wide and particularly dynamic range of tone. The Blacktop FilterTron pickup at the bridge delivers the solid punch and twang that has made Electromatic models such a hit among rockabilly and blues guitarists. Conversely, the super-clean Super HiLo'Tron dual-coil pickup at the neck provides you with sparkling highs bolstered with plenty of low-end oomph and clarity. Together, these pickups make the G5655T-CB ideal for anything from gusty rock to glassy jazz tones.

Long spruce center block enhances your tone

You get a lot of tonal bang for your buck with the Gretsch G5655T-CB, thanks to its long spruce center block. Running the full length of the body, the center block allows the otherwise hollowbody to resist resonant-frequency feedback. That means you can rock out louder and with more gain without your amplifier squealing out of control. Spruce is a snappy tonewood, too, and since the center block connects with the bridge, the note definition and clarity on the G5655T-CB are amazing.

Smooth vibrato action, courtesy of a real Bigsby tailpiece

Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby tailpiece adds to the G5655T-CB. It's particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends with the G5655T-CB, thanks to its Bigsby licensed B50 vibrato tailpiece.

Gretsch G5655T-CB Electromatic Center-Block Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:

  • Laminated maple top, back, and sides add snap and definition to your sound
