Gretsch Electric Guitars - G5655T-CB Electromatic Center Block w/Bigsby - Georgia Green


SOLD. Call us for options.

This Gretsch G5655T CB Center Block Electromatic with Bigsby guitar was an instant favorite of the whole MSM staff the day it arrived. Its chimey tone, ability to handle distortion like a pro and sharp looks are why it's a real standout. This double cutaway Electromatic is loaded with Gretsch's new dual coil Super HiLo’Tron pickup in the neck, paired with a hot Black Top FilterTron in the bridge. It's a killer combination, as the HiLo gives you sparkly high end, full-on low end and sounds perfect with the hotter Black Top. These pickups give you that iconic Gretsch twang while cutting down on noise without sacrificing tone.

This G5655T's body is 5-ply Maple with a Spruce center block that runs the full length of body, giving you great control over feedback. Did we mention the classic Bigsby B50 trem? Classic flat handle with an anchored Adjust-o-matic bridge. Everything on this beast is beautiful - the sleek, arched body with its Georgia Green finish, body and neck binding, and iconic details like the arrow knobs and thumbnail neck inlay- it's all right here. If you like to crank up your twang to 11, this is the guitar. This Gretsch G5655T CB Center Block Electromatic comes with a full set up to your specs.
