Gretsch's G5260 Electromatic Jet Baritone perfectly captures the quintessential Jet sound at sub-sonic levels. For guitarists looking for a performance-ready baritone guitar that walks the line between thunderous and piano-like, the G5260 is a strong contender.
Sporting an all-mahogany body, the Jet Baritone feels sturdy, solid, and projects a rich tone with a hefty bottom-end. It also features an elongated 29 3/4" scale, helping accommodate lower tunings while keeping the strings nice and taught. Players will appreciate the Jet Baritone's Thin "U" shaped bolt-on maple neck, which makes dexterous riffing a breeze and adds plenty of top-end chime and articulation.
The Jet Baritone rattles foundations with dual mini humbuckers that pump out booming lows and bright, sparkling highs. These pickups boast an impressive amount of definition and clarity at every level of gain, making the Jet Baritone suitable for a wide range of performance settings. If you need a little more sonic versatility, further tone-shaping is provided by a three-position pickup selector switch as well as master volume and master tone controls.
Complete with an anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge, pearloid Big Block inlays, white binding with purfling, and chrome hardware, the G5260 Electromatic Jet Baritone boasts a timeless aesthetic and a stellar tone, making it an excellent addition to any guitarist's collection.
