(SOLD) Gretsch Electromatic G5435 Pro Jet Black 2007
Gretsch Electromatic Pro Jet, black, made in China 2007. Gretsch launched their Electromatic series around 1998, with a trimmed down version of their iconic Duo Jet the primary offering. This sounds great: the bridge pickup is raspy and rich with heaps of girth and character, while the neck pickup is dense and full and surprisingly jazz-able. The neck is a comfy rounded shape, it sits nicely in the hands and never makes you work too hard. For a slim dime you get heaps of guitar here, it's a smooth operator for sure.
