Gretsch Electromatic G5230T Jet Firebord Red 2018
Gretsch Electromatic Jet, firebird red, made in China 2018. This little mate is basically brand new; it was bought off the shelf merely a couple of months ago. As such, it's got basically no wear, as well as a fancy Gretsch case you'd usually pay a couple of hundred extra for. The rich red finish is a visual delight; it's a nice contrast to the more common black finish and really pops against the chrome hardware and double binding. Tone-wise, that classic Gretsch bright and snappy growl is certainly there. It's perfect for aggressive rhythm stuff and cuts through a mix easily. The slim neck and weight relieved body make for an easygoing combo; you're not working too hard to get it snarling. Heaps of fun!
