With a double cutaway body and humbucking "blacktop" FilterTron pickups, this jet is reminiscent of the Duo Jets of the 1960s. The Electromatic Jets are excellent guitars that sound great have classic Gretsch style! The Electromatic Jet features the same construction recipe you'd find on its ancestors. It has a chambered body with set neck and a 3 ply maple top yielding a snappy tone that's great for a variety of music styles. The tone from the "Black Top" FilterTron humbuckers is very clean with low noise and plenty of bite. This guitar certainly has that Great Gretsch Sound!

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.
