Gretsch G5220 The Music Zoo Review

The G5220 Electromatic Jet BT Single-Cut with V-Stoptail delivers Broad'Tron power with classic Jet clarity!

What's not to like about the Gretsch G5220? We can guarantee you the price won't be one of them. This guitar boasts exceptional value, featuring a chambered mahogany body with maple top that produces a rich, present mid-range that accentuates big lows and shimmering highs. A pair of Black Top Broad'Tron pickups drive the chambered body with maple top through thick, aggressive overdrive while maintaining superior definition and note balance suitable for the most pristine clean tones.
