Gretsch G5260 Electromatic Jet Baritone with V-Stoptail - Dark Cherry Metallic

available for immediate delivery


Gretsch's G5260 Electromatic Jet Baritone is an all-new model that provides players with the Jet essentials, but as a baritone guitar tuned B to B. This sub-sonic edition of a Jet features dual mini-humbucking pickups that retain picking dynamics and playing character at every level of gain, with heaps of low-end to handle its bari nature. The guitar's bolt-on maple neck features an elongated 39 3/4" scale, plus a comfortable 12" radius laurel fingerboard, and 22 medium jumbo frets for maximum fretting hand comfort. Plus, its London Grey finish, black pickguard, and pearloid big block inlays give it a dark appearance that matches its tone. If you love baritones and Gretsch, then this is the perfect guitar for you.

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.
