For 140 years, Gretsch has been manufacturing top-notch instruments that have changed the course of modern music as we know it. The all-new G5230T-140 celebrates Gretsch's continued success, and it's a fantastic guitar with a classic, full-bodied sound. From its dazzling Two-Tone Platinum finish to its bold and clear FT-5E Filter'Tron pickups, this guitar is excellent for players who want an eye-catching Gretsch with a rich, timeless tone.
The G5230T-140 features a chambered mahogany body capped with an arched maple top, giving it a rich, resonant voice with robust lows, full mids, and pristine highs. Players will love riffing on its Thin "U" shaped mahogany neck that fills the hand nicely but still makes it easy to perform lightning-fast licks. They'll also appreciate its anchored Adjust-o-Matic bridge, Bigsby B50 tailpiece, and die-cast sealed tuners, all of which contribute to an impeccable playing experience.
If clarity and punch is what you're after, you'll love this model's FT-5E Filter'Tron humbuckers. These pickups perfectly capture the clear, punchy sound of the G5230T-140's chambered body and deliver a gorgeous tone with deep lows and chiming highs when amplified.
Complete with individual pickup volume controls, a master tone knob, and a master volume with a treble bleed circuit, the G5230T-140 is a phenomenal guitar that sounds just as good as it looks.
