The G5655T-CB ElectromaticÂ® Center-Block Electric Guitar features That Great Gretsch Soundâ„˘ with the "center-block advantage." The interior solid spruce center block running the length of the guitarâ€™s 1 Âľ"-deep Double Jetâ„˘ body makes for a lively "high gain-friendly" tone and delivers greater control over the kind of feedback players want. The new dual-coil Super HiLoâ€™Tronâ„˘ neck pickup is voiced to produce a clean, high-end sparkle with robust low-end, low-noise performance. Together with the "Black Top" Filterâ€™Tronâ„˘ bridge pickup, itâ€™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 12.5â€ť-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and Neo-Classicâ„˘ "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, master volume), anchored Adjusto-Maticâ„˘ bridge and flat-handle BigsbyÂ®-licensed B50 vibrato, GroverÂ® tuners and knurled strap retainer knobs. Available in Black, Rosa Red and Georgia Green gloss finishes.
