This is the uniquely Gretsch model G5135 Electromatic CVT "Corvette". 1st designed in 1961 (with several early revisions), the new Electromatic corvette shares essentially the same design as its 1960's ancestors, with a few modern improvements. The G5135 is a thin, lightweight solid body electric with great balance and a very ergonomic design. The sound is wide open with plenty of sustain and punch. The Corvette makes a great rock guitar but is suited to play many styles of music. We are a long standing fully authorized independent Gretsch guitar dealer. This is a brand new guitar and comes with the full Gretsch Limited lifetime factory warranty.
***Though not included from the factory we have hard cases for this model in stock and ready to ship along with your order. Please contact us for details regarding the cases we suggest for this instrument.

Why We Love Gretsch
Gretsch has been handcrafting guitars for over 135 years. The unique sound of the Gretsch semi-hollow body guitar has become synonymous with rockabilly music, one of the first styles of rock ‘n roll. Gretsch guitars are a favorite among musicians like Chet Atkins, Brian Setzer and George Harrison. At Cream City Music, we love Gretsch too, which is why we always have a huge selection of new, used and vintage Gretsch guitars in stock.
