G5655T-CB Electromatic® CENTER-BLOCK, Rosewood Fingerboard, Black

Model: 2509500506

The G5655T-CB Electromatic® Center-Block Electric Guitar features That Great Gretsch Sound!™ with the "Center-Block advantage." The interior solid spruce Center-Block runs the length of the guitar’s 1 ¾"-deep Double Jet™ body, making for a lively "high gain-friendly" tone and delivering greater control over the kind of feedback players want. The dual-coil Super HiLo’Tron™ humbucking neck pickup is voiced to produce a clean, high end sparkle with robust low end and low-noise performance. Together with the "Black Top" Filter’Tron™ bridge pickup, it’s a potent tonal combination.

Other premium features include five-ply maple body construction with a bound arched top and back, a bound maple neck and a 12.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and Neo-Classic™ "thumbnail" inlays. The G5655T-CB also has three-way pickup switching, single-ply black pickguard with Gretsch® logo, four "G-Arrow" control knobs (volume for each pickup, bridge-pickup-only tone and master volume), anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and flat-handled Bigsby®-licensed B50 vibrato, Grover® tuners and knurled strap retainer knobs.
