Gretsch's G5700 Electromatic Lap Steel Guitar delivers the unmistakably rich, 'beachy' tones of an electric Hawaiian guitar. Perfect for guitarists looking to add some flare to their arsenal, the G5700 is sure to draw attention.
Featuring a sleek solid mahogany slab body, the G5700 Electromatic Lap Steel sits comfortably and projects a gorgeous tone with thick, rich lows and a beaming top-end. It also sports a set of ultra-cool geometric position markers, making its 28 fret plastic fingerboard effortless to navigate. The real showstopper on the G5700 lap steel, though, is its chrome-covered single-coil bridge pickup. This pickup projects a bright, sparkling tone that can easily cut through the mix when needed. If you're looking for something a little more mellow, though, don't worry. Just dime back the master tone control to your liking, and the G5700 will go from chiming and clear to warm and syrupy.
Complete with a retro broadway jade finish, the Gretsch G5700 Electromatic Lap Steel Guitar is a stellar lap steel that sounds just as cool as it looks - and that's saying something.
