Gretsch G5232T Electromatic Double Jet FT Tone
The airy and resonant tone you get from this guitar is thanks to a chambered mahogany body and an arched maple top. This combination of woods provides great lows and mids, and maintains an articulate and refined high-end. This guitar is very well balanced, and the Filter'Tron pickups accentuate all of the Electromatic Double Jet's nuances. Whether you're playing clean, or with some gain dialed in, this guitar rewards you with a clear tone that is never harsh on the ears.
Gretsch G5232T Electromatic Double Jet FT Feel
The Gretsch G5232T Electromcatic Double Jet sports a thin "U" mahogany neck paired with a laurel fingerboard. It sits well in your hand, and is a great "middle of the road" size that suits both chords and articulate note-playing rather well. Being a solid-body, the Double Jet is a comfortable size and weight, great for those long gigs or late-night practice sessions.
Why We Like It
We dig the controls on this thing; simple, yet versatile. Two volume control allow you to to dial in the perfect balance between the two pickups, while a master tone control refines it all. The 3-position toggle is easy to switch and gives you all of the combinations you need, with well-defined differences between each position.
You Might Also Consider
Is a hollowbody more your style? For a similar price, the G5622T Electromatic Center Block with Bigsby is available. This guitar is a double-cutaway Gretsch that sports a maple body and chambered spruce center block. Another notable difference is that it is powered by a set of Dual Black Top Broad’Tron pickups which also provide a balanced and clear tone, but with a slightly different punch.
