Gretsch's G5655T-QM is a powerful semi-hollow guitar that serves up pure, bold tones and devilishly-good looks. From its stunning quilted maple top to its Broad'Tron pickups and Bigsby Tailpiece, this guitar has secured its spot as an instant classic. If you've been looking for a well-rounded semi-hollow with an eye-catching appearance, this Gretsch is sure to satisfy.
The G5655T-QM features a smaller-sized body capped with an arched laminated maple top, giving it a bright, resonant tone that sounds fantastic acoustic and amplified. Its chambered spruce centerblock not only enhances sustain, but it also reduces feedback at higher volumes and decreases the instrument's overall weight. It also sports an Anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge and a Bigsby-licensed B70 tailpiece that provides excellent intonation and allows for deep vibrato.
In typical Gretsch fashion, the G5655T-QM has a wealth of classic and contemporary tones at its disposal. Its Black Top Broad'Tron humbuckers have a dynamic and articulate sound with big lows and plenty of high-end shimmer, and they sound great no matter what style of music you're playing. And thanks to the individual pickup controls, master tone knob, and master volume with a treble bleed circuit, this guitar has tons of sonic flexibility.
Complete with a lower set Thin "U" shaped maple neck and a 12" radius laurel fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, the Gretsch G5655T-QM is perfect for players seeking a go-to semi-hollow with a striking aesthetic.
