Scottsdale, AZ (Sept. 15, 2011) -- Gretsch announces the debut of several new Electromatic Series guitars. The additions to the immensely popular Electromatic collection take on a new voice and identity while resonating true to the unmistakable Gretsch sound. The series welcomes nine new models, including two basses and two left-handed guitars.
G5445T Electromatic Double Jet Bigsby
New to the series are the Black G5445T and Gold G5448T Double Jet models. These double-cutaway guitars have a chambered basswood body and an arched maple top; a two-tone body color scheme; dual "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups and a Bigsby B50 tailpiece. Other features include a 12² radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and "Hump-Block" inlays; three-position pickup toggle switch; anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge, G-arrow knobs and a white pearloid Gretsch-logo pickguard.
The Cherry G5103 and Black G5105 CVT III guitars offer a slim design with a thundering sound. These sonically stellar models sport the original Gretsch "CVT" thin-profile mahogany body design; a bolt-on maple neck that joins the body at the 18th fret, and three Gretsch mini dual-coil pickups that sound hi-fi rich and high-gain friendly. Additional features include three-position pickup toggle switch; 12" radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets; G-arrow knobs and anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge with stop tailpiece.
